Musa, Anichebe Fire Blanks As Leicester Draw, Liverpool Go Top


By James Agberebi:

Super Eagles forward Ahmed Musa was in action for Leicester City who narrowly escaped defeat as they forced newly promoted Middlesbrough to a 2-2 Premier League draw at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.

Musa came off the bench to replace Algeria's Riyad Mahrez on 68 minutes.

An Alvaro Negredo double, in the 13th and 72nd minutes, looked to have won it for Middlesbrough but  Islam Slimani last minute penalty salvaged a point for the Foxes.

Leicester's first goal was scored by Mahrez from the penalty spot on 34 minutes.

With the draw, Leicester are now  winless in their last four EPL games.

At Anfield, Nigerian forward Victor Anichebe failed to add to his three league goals as Liverpool beat a hard fighting  Sunderland 2-0.

Liverpool's goals were scored by substitute Divock Origi in the 75th and James Milner in the 90th minute from the penalty spot.

Liverpool however suffered a setback on 34 minutes as Philippe Coutinho was stretched off injured.

The Reds are now temporarily top in the league on 30 points.


In the other EPL games on Saturday, Swansea won a dramatic nine-goal thriller 5-4 over Crystal Palace, who had come from 3-2 down to lead 4-3 into the last few minutes; Hull andbWest Brom drew 1-1.
