Premier league leaders Liverpool failed to take full advantage of Manchester City’s slip up at Newcastle United as they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Leicester City.
Jurgen Klopp’s men extended their lead over City to five points after Sadio Mane’s early opener was canceled out by Harry Maguire just before half time.
But after their rivals suffered a 2-1 loss on Tuesday, Liverpool will be disappointed not have pulled seven points clear.
The game was played under snowy conditions at Anfield and the Livepool Manager Jurgen Klopp was pleased with the point given the conditions.
“You saw that the ball didn’t roll really,” said the German, whose side were denied a second-half penalty when Naby Keita was fouled by Ricardo Pereira.

Zaha was then dismissed for sarcastically clapping referee Andre Marriner, moments after being cautioned for tangling with James Ward-Prowse.
