Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino scored in the first half as Liverpool won their first four Premier League games for the first time with a 2-1 victory over Leicester City on Saturday at the King Power Stadium.

Mane scored in the 10th minute and Firmino scored in the 45th, but a 63rd-minute gaffe by Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson cost him a fourth consecutive Premier League clean sheet when Rachid Ghezzal slotted home.

Defender Virgil van Dijk’s back pass went wide under pressure, and Alisson went to play it in the left corner before being challenged by Leicester’s Kelechi Iheanacho.

The keeper could not dribble away from Iheanacho, who gained possession and passed the ball ahead to Ghezzal as the midfielder scored his first Premier League goal.
