Slimani stunner ousts Liverpool

Islam Slimani scored a brilliant goal as Leicester beat Liverpool 2-0 in the third round of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday.  Substitute Shinji Okazaki opened the scoring in the 66th minute before Slimani fired in from outside the box to seal victory for the Foxes.

Liverpool, with Philippe Coutinho and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain starting, had dominated the first half, but failed to take any of their chances.  Jurgen Klopp's side, who made the semi-finals last year and final in 2016, have now failed to win any of their last four matches.  Leicester, meanwhile, are into the fourth round for the first time since 2015, having recovered from a dismal first-half performance to progress.
