Liverpool defeated Leicester City 3-0 in an away match held at King Power Stadium in Leicester, England on the morning of the 16th (Korean time). Curtis Jones scored two goals and Trent Alexander-Arnold scored one. All three goals were assisted by Mohamed Salah.

Leicester City, on the other hand, are in danger of relegation. Leicester City is 19th with 8 wins, 6 draws and 22 losses (30 points), and is 2 points behind Everton (97 wins, 11 draws, 18 losses, 32 points), 17th outside the relegation zone.

And although it was promoted in 2001, it stayed in 19th place in the 2011-2012 season and fell to the championship. Leicester City, which was promoted to the EPL in 2014, reached the top in the 2015-2016 season, but was in danger of relegation after 7 years.
