FT: Liverpool 2 Leicester 1. 

James Milner's injury-time penalty earned a dramatic win over in-form Leicester City.

Liverpool move eight points clear of Manchester City after their 17th successive league victory.

Brendan Rodgers' side looked to be on course for a hard-earned point on his return to Anfield after James Maddison's low finish 10 minutes from time equalised Sadio Mane's 40th-minute strike.

And with the clock ticking into stoppage time, a communication breakdown between Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel and substitute Marc Albrighton ended with the latter bring down Mane.

The penalty was awarded after consultation with the video assistant referee and Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp celebrated wildly as Rodgers turned away in despair.

Liverpool 2-1 Leciester

Norwich 1-5 Aston Villa

Watford 0-0 Sheffield United.
