Premier League: Liverpool 4-1 Leicester City | Firmino nets brace

LIVERPOOL, ENGLAND - SEPTEMBER 10:  Sadio Mane of Liverpool celebrates scoring his sides second goal with team mates during the Premier League match between Liverpool and Leicester City at Anfield on September 10, 2016 in Liverpool, England.

Roberto Firmino scored twice as Liverpool marked their first match at Anfield this season with a 4-1 victory over Leicester City.

Firmino slotted in the opener after evading Robert Huth with a clever touch and sliding the ball past Kasper Schmeichel.

Sadio Mane added a second after lifting the ball over Schmeichel from Daniel Sturridge’s clever backheel on 31 minutes.

Jamie Vardy then scored in an open goal after Lucas Leiva’s misplaced pass but Adam Lallana restored the two-goal advantage with a ferocious drive after the break.

Firmino found an unguarded net in the 89th-minute after Mane-led a counter-attack as the visitors pushed forward.
