Liverpool’s stars avoided exposing themselves to more uncomfortable criticism on Saturday as they took all three points in a thriller against Leicester.

Philippe Coutinho wrote the headlines with a magical first half display, in which he superbly assisted Mohamed Salah’s headed goal before striking home a stunning free-kick.
