(Watch video) Goall Jota Spectacular goal against Leicester City

With a 3-1 victory over Leicester City, Liverpool made another thrilling comeback to advance to the Carabao Cup fourth round.


On Wednesday night at Anfield, the Reds were behind after only three minutes thanks to a goal from Kasey McAteer and were then denied on many fine chances before halftime.


However, with 48 remaining, Cody Gakpo’s precise attempt tied the score, and midway through the second period, substitute Dominik Szoboszlai blasted home a second goal.


Then, Diogo Jota scored with a late backheel in front of the Kop to guarantee J├╝rgen Klopp’s team’s advancement to the next round.

Adrian, Van Dijk, Diaz, Mac Allister, and Matip were all inactive subs.


initial half


When Leicester put the first point on the scoreboard, the game had not even been going for three minutes.


Yunus Akgun’s slanted pass sent McAteer in behind as the visitors counterattacked following a Reds set-piece, and the forward finished expertly with a shot that slid inside the left post.


Ben Doak’s claims of a penalty as he scampered into the area and was brought down by James Justin’s challenge were rejected, and Harry Souttar then successfully stopped Gakpo’s effort on the spin. Liverpool’s instant response was strong.


A Harvey Elliott right-to-left reached Jota from a distance of yards away, leaving him unable to make a choice as the home team then clanged the crossbar.

Jarell Quansah poked Kostas Tsimikas’s spinning corner kick toward the goal. Jakub Stolarczyk, the goalie for the Foxes, parried out, and Doak rasped the ball onto the woodwork.


The Reds were then denied on the goal line as Conor Coady successfully deflected Gakpo’s powerful downward header from Tsimikas’ left-side free-kick.


After Liverpool lost possession by the opponent box and Doak missed the target from Ryan Gravenberch’s set-up, Gakpo subsequently had a curler deflected out for a corner.


Tsimikas’ low shot was deflected into Stolarczyk’s hands, and the opposition goalie later tipped in a Doak cross, where Gakpo was waiting to score.
