Leicester City 2-0 Liverpool: Wasteful Reds run amok as the Foxes notch up brilliant win [Best Tweets]

Second-half strikes from Shinji Okazaki and Islam Slimani helped Leicester notch up a convincing win against Liverpool in the third round of the Carabao Cup.

Liverpool lost 2-0 at the King Power Stadium last night, against a well-organized Leicester City squad. The Reds’ Carabao Cup campaign came to an early end as second-half goals from Shinji Okazaki and Islam Slimani pushed the home side to a convincing victory.

Substitute Okazki – who came on in place of the injured Leonardo Ulloa – was just in the right place at the right time as he picked up a loose ball inside the penalty area to propel the Foxes ahead in the 65th minute, following which Slimani settled the third round tie 13 minutes later.

Liverpool are yet to see a victory in the month of September so far. Their next Premier League game will be against Leicester City as well, and it will be tough task to get back to winning ways after a worrisome four-game rut. The Hard Tackle takes a look at some of the best tweets regarding the match.

Twitter was also flooded with collective disappointment over the ineffectiveness of players like Philippe Coutinho, while Jurgen Klopp also received his fair share of criticism.

However, one name dominated Twitter last night – Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. He has been trolled time and again for his lack of impact on the field for Liverpool.
