Liverpool 2-1 Leicester City: Double own goals from Wout Faes gift Reds three points, Dewsbury-Hall on target for the Foxes

Liverpool made it back to back victories since the resumption of the Premier League, following a 2-1 win against visiting Leicester City at Anfield on Friday night.

The Foxes struck early on through Dewsbury-Hall in the fourth minute, but two weird own goals from Wout Faes turned the tie around in favour of the Reds who have now cut the deficit between themselves and the Top Four to just two points.
