Sept 23 (Reuters) - Simon Mignolet conceded and then saved a late penalty as Liverpool clung on for a 3-2 win over Leicester City in a pulsating Premier League clash at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.
The visitors dominated the first half and opened the scoring through Mo Salah’s far-post header from Philippe Coutinho’s cross a minute after the Egyptian missed a sitter. The goal was Salah’s sixth of the season.
Coutinho looked back to his best and increased the lead with a curled 25-metre free-kick inside Casper Schmeichel’s post on 23 minutes but Liverpool conceded just before the break when Shinji Okazaki converted a knockdown despite strong appeals for a foul on the keeper.
Goals flow at both ends whenever Liverpool play and no sooner had Jordan Henderson restored their two-goal lead than Vardy headed Leicester’s second before falling under a fly-kick challenge from Mignolet as the Belgian failed to clear his lines. But Vardy fired his spot-kick too close to the keeper, who had been shown a yellow card for the foul and parried it away for his fifth penalty save in eight attempts.
