Jota double keeps Liverpool in title race

Liverpool still trail Manchester City at the top of the table by nine points, but have a game in hand on the champions to come and were impressive in securing a fifth consecutive win. With Mohamed Salah left on the bench from the start after his exertions at the Africa Cup of Nations and Sadio Mane still celebrating his success with Senegal, Jota took centre stage to continue his excellent season.

The Portuguese produced two predatory finishes as he smashed home a loose ball from close range to open the scoring in the first half before firing into the far corner three minutes from time to take his tally for the campaign to 17 goals. Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers returned to Anfield under pressure to turn around the Foxes' floundering season after an embarrassing 4-1 defeat to Championship side Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup on previous Sunday.
