Ghana defender Daniel Amartey was in action for Leicester City as they lost 2-1 away Liverpool at Anfield this afternoon.

The Reds fell behind after less than three minutes as Jamie Vardy continued his remarkable record against the Merseysiders, and despite creating a string of chances the hosts could not restore parity before half time.

However, a second-half brace from Mohamed Salah saw Jurgen Klopp’s side come from behind to pick up a valuable victory, lifting them four points clear of Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur in the race for a top-four spot.

Liverpool went into the match boasting the best home defensive record in the Premier League, but it took less than three minutes for their reasoning behind spending a world-record sum on Virgil van Dijk to be reinforced.

Van Dijk was watching on from the directors’ box as Joel Matip gifted possession to Leicester in a dangerous area, allowing Vicente Iborra to release Riyad Mahrez who in turn set it up on a plate for Vardy to tuck home an easy finish into an empty net.

It was Vardy’s seventh goal in his last five Premier League appearances against Liverpool, making them his favourite opponent in the top flight and giving Leicester a perfect start to the contest.
