'I am struggling to digest it'

Leicester 2-3 Liverpool

Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare: "I am struggling to digest it myself. You come in and contribute to another fabulous game of football but ultimately came away with nothing.

"Penalties are there and players have missed them before. Jamie will be gutted himself because wwe ould have come away with the points.

"Disappointing thing for me was at 2-1 down we conceded a third goal. It was a difficult game for us - it ebbed and flowed but we go away disappointed."

'We are still here'

Leicester 2-3 Liverpool

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, speaking to BBC Sport: "It is not a time to be completely cool but overall I was happy with our performance. The boys deserved the three points. The free kick for the first goal was not a free-kick and it was a foul on Simon [for the second goal].

"At the start of the second half we played the same football like Leicester - kinda hectic. Simon saved the penalty and then I think we really deserved the win.

"I really thought in a moment like this so many things are positive. The three points are the proof for the public that we are still here, everything is good. Let's make the next step together."

On Coutinho: "Nobody was in doubt about this. It is clear he is the highest quality player. We are happy to have him around."

'A big step forward'

Leicester 2-3 Liverpool

Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, speaking to BT Sport: "I kept my cool head to try and save it and luckily it paid off. Three points away from home is the most important thing. The lads fought well and deserved the three points today.

"You know when you play Leicester there will always be long balls. We showed character to get through the game and I think this is a big step forward."

'I needed my medication'

Liverpool fan Steve on 606

"I love football - it's the most passionate game in the world. I've been watching Liverpool for 50 years and I needed my medication tonight. That's what Liverpool do to you because they're so exciting to watch."

'We played some brilliant stuff'

Leicester 2-3 Liverpool

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson, speaking to BT Sport: "I felt as though we defended well for the majority of the game. We played some brilliant stuff, especially in the first half.

"Coutinho is a fantastic player. He produces magical things at crucial times of the game. This will give us good confidence going forward."

Huge smile on Jurgen Klopp's face at full time. After a heavy defeat to Manchester City and a frustrating draw with Burnley, he needed this win.

The three points move Liverpool up to fifth.

'Great advert for Premier League football'

Leicester 2-3 Liverpool

Terry Butcher

Ex-England captain for BBC Radio 5 live

Liverpool should have been out of sight but Leicester's spirit kept them in the game. Simon Mignolet went from zero to hero and what a great advert for the Premier League. Spectacular game.

FULL-TIME

Leicester 2-3 Liverpool

The free-kick is headed away and the full time whistle goes!

Liverpool get the win. What a game.

Now Leicester have a free-kick just outside the area. Kasper Schmeichel is up for it...

Danny Simpson sends a cross into the box but Alberto Moreno hooks the ball away...

Leicester 2-3 Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp turns his back on the pitch for a moment. Even he dare not watch.

Big noise from the away fans. They are doing their best to help Liverpool get over the line.

YELLOW CARD

Leicester 2-3 Liverpool

Yellow card for Jamie Vardy as he catches Alberto Moreno late. That eats up a few more seconds as Liverpool look to hold on.

The fourth official's board doesn't ease Liverpool fans' nerves. There'll be FIVE additional minutes.

Daniel: There’s 3 things certain in life... taxes, death and Liverpool’s defence will always fail them. Come on, don’t let me down.

Danny: Not being able to defend a two goal lead is a massive issue. The penalty wouldn't be a concern if LFC could defend #kloppout

Carl Jones: all the fans complaining about Klopp are forgetting how he looks after you by keeping LFC at the start of MOTD.

Nervy finale

Leicester 2-3 Liverpool

Gary Flintoff

BBC Radio 5 live

The Liverpool fans look nervous. They have backed their side with song after song in the second-half. Now it is down to the 11 on the pitch. Can they get over the line?

CLOSE!

Leicester 2-3 Liverpool

That's exactly what almost happens, Terry, as Islami Slimani heads Jamie Vardy's superb cross just wide.

Although it wouldn't have counted if Slimani had scored anyway, the whistle had already gone for a foul.

Terry Butcher

Liverpool still going forward to try and grab a fourth but they've got to be careful. They could leave themselves wide open to a counter.

Leicester 2-3 Liverpool

Daniel Sturridge has a pop from distance but Kasper Schmeichel is equal to it, stretching across to push the ball away. Fancy another goal in this one before the 90 minutes are up.

Not to be missed

I cannot believe what I am seeing. There are some Leicester fans heading for the exits. Surely they are going for a comfort break or a cut price pie? No-one in their right mind should be leaving this one early. Even if you need to go, hold it in!

SUBSTITUTION

Leicester 2-3 Liverpool

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will be sick of playing against Leicester. He's on now for his third appearance against them this season, replacing Philippe Coutinho.

Leicester also make a change as Islam Slimani replaces Marc Albrighton.

So... What do you think of this incredible game?

Khan: Justice served. terrible decision awful.Mignolet got the ball clearly. Almost cost Liverpool again. How many terrible decisions

James Hammond: I love you to bits @LFC, but this game is killing me. I've gone through a year's worth of emotion in 5 minutes of football.

Scott: Liverpool are great to watch

Leicester 2-3 Liverpool

I will never use the words "and breathe" in a live text commentary page again. I haven't had had a breather since Liverpool scored their third but finally the tempo has dropped a little bit now.

SUBSTITUTION

Leicester 2-3 Liverpool

That's the end of Emre Can's involvement because he's replaced by James Milner for the final 15 minutes.

Leicester 2-3 Liverpool

It's all happening at the moment. Leicester have another shout for a penalty as a cross into the box appears to hit Emre Can's arm before Daniel Sturridge sends an effort just over.

End-to-end.

Mignolet plays the ball but he wipes Vardy out. Madness from Mignolet followed by a moment of marvelous. Great save.

PENALTY SAVED

Leicester 2-3 Liverpool

Simon Mignolet has done his homework on Jamie Vardy. The striker's last few penalties have been down the middle and he goes for the old tried and tested spot kick again. Mignolet stands his ground and makes the save.

What a game!

GOAL - Leicester 2-3 Liverpool

Jamie Vardy (69 mins)

Spoke too soon.

An absolute gift for Jamie Vardy as Simon Miignolet pushes Demarai Gray's shot from distance straight to the striker, who gleefully heads into the empty net.

As you were.

GOAL - Leicester 1-3 Liverpool

Jordan Henderson (68 mins)

And breathe, Liverpool fans.

The visitors restore their two-goal advantage with a rare Jordan Henderson strike on the counter.

It came after Jamie Vardy had a close range effort blocked and Liverpool broke, three on two, before Henderson cooly sidestepped his marker to fire home.

SUBSTITUTION

Leicester 1-2 Liverpool

First change for Liverpool as Roberto Firmino, who has had a quiet game, is replaced by Daniel Sturridge.

Liverpool still dominating possession, although Leicester's play under Craig Shakespeare is rarely about long spells of having the ball. Before this game they averaged 36% possession, the lowest figure in the Premier League.

SUBSTITUTION

Leicester 1-2 Liverpool

The clock ticks past the hour mark and Craig Shakespeare decides to make the first change of the game. Demarai Gray is on for Riyad Mahrez.

This is Gray's sixth appearance off the bench this season. Will he do something to convince Shakespeare he is worth a shot from the start of a game?

Terry Butcher was asked for his prediction by the stewards when parking his car at the King Power this afternoon. He suggested it could end up 2-2. He may not be far off from what we have seen in the second-half, although I would not rule out 3-3 just yet!
