Mikel Arteta questioned the decision to rule out Alexandre Lacazette's early goal in Arsenal's 1-0 loss to Leicester City at Emirates Stadium.

Lacazette steered home a header inside four minutes in Sunday's Premier League clash, but it was ruled out because Arsenal team-mates Granit Xhaka and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang were stood in offside positions.

France forward Lacazette missed a big chance later in the first half and Arsenal's profligacy came back to haunt them when Leicester substitute Jamie Vardy scored a winner 10 minutes from time.

But while Arteta was unhappy with the decision to chalk off Lacazette's goal, the Gunners manager accepted more is required from Arsenal after back-to-back Premier League losses.

"The game went the way it went. I felt we had total control in the first half and restricted them to nothing," Arteta told BBC Sport.

"We were winning every ball, created a few chances and scored a goal - I don't know how it got disallowed. 

"They defended deeper in the second half, waiting for the mistake and in one moment they did it."

Elaborating on the disallowed goal at his post-match news conference, Arteta added: "Granit is behind [Kasper] Schmeichel so it's nothing to do with him. 

"They made the decision and we can't change it now."

Leicester failed to muster a single shot on target before Vardy, introduced after an hour, converted fellow substitute Cengiz Under's cross for his 11th league goal against Arsenal.

Arteta bemoaned the Gunners' lack of cutting edge in front of goal before Vardy's match-winning impact, with his side managing 12 shots in total.

"Against this block, against so well organised teams, when you open them up you have to put the ball in the back of the net," he said.

"They were similar against Manchester City, they scored with two set pieces and credit to them for what they have done but our players responded and I feel sorry for them.

"We have so many alternatives in the team and can have fluidity. It worked in some moments and there are options we can manage."

The defeat for Arsenal is their first at home in the league this calendar year and their first against Leicester in any competition in 28 games since 1973.

Visiting boss Brendan Rodgers, whose side had previously lost back-to-back top-flight matches without scoring, hailed Vardy – still not fully fit after recently sustaining a calf injury - for his huge impact from the bench.

"Every game he looks like scoring," Rodgers told reporters. "He's disappointed he didn't have another. 

"He's a world-class striker and he's a guy who stretches the game, gets in behind. He's an incredible talent and we would've loved to have started him.

"For us to be the first team to win here this calendar year show the work Arteta has done here. 

"It was a great win, a great night, and it's just a shame the supporters couldn't be here to celebrate. It is four wins from six now and the team is moving along very well."

Liverpool ruthlessly capitalised on playing against 10 men in the second half as they eased to victory over Chelsea on Sunday.

The reigning champions have won two from two at the start of the new campaign, as is also the case for Leicester City after they saw off Burnley in the late kick-off.

Brighton and Hove Albion are up and running after a worthwhile journey north, while Tottenham leaned heavily on two of their superstars to put Southampton to the sword.

With help from Opta data, here is a recap of the four fixtures to take place on another busy day in the Premier League.

Chelsea 0-2 Liverpool: Thiago makes debut as champions triumph

A close contest at Stamford Bridge changed complexion when Andreas Christensen was sent off in first-half stoppage time.

Sadio Mane, the player fouled by the defender, went on to score twice after the break, making him just the third Liverpool player to get a brace of goals at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League era. The others? Steve McManaman, back in December 1995, and Philippe Coutinho, who did so in October 2015.

However, the scorer was overshadowed somewhat by new team-mate Thiago Alcantara, who replaced the injured Jordan Henderson at half-time having only completed his move on Friday.

Still, the Spaniard managed to complete more passes (75) than any Chelsea player in the entire match. Indeed, since full passing data became available for the Premier League in the 2003-04 season, his total number of successful passes is the most by a player who featured for a maximum of 45 minutes.

Jorginho missed a penalty for Chelsea too, his first failure in nine attempts for the Blues in all competitions. Alisson not only produced his first save from the spot for Liverpool since joining the club but also his first save of the season.

Southampton 2-5 Tottenham: Bale force! Son and Kane steal the show 

Saturday was all about a returning hero for Spurs fans, as the club confirmed Gareth Bale was coming back from Real Madrid on a season-long loan. Less than 24 hours later, Son Heung-min became the headline act for Tottenham, aided by Harry Kane playing a sublime supporting role in a comprehensive win.

Son scored four of his side's goals at St Mary's Stadium. All of them were set up by Kane, who became just the sixth player to assist four goals in a single Premier League game. No Englishman had previously achieved the feat.

To put that into context, Kane – who also scored Spurs' fifth in the rout – only provided two assists in the 2019-20 season, albeit he did miss a large chunk of that due to injury. 

All this came after Southampton had taken the lead, though their failure to hold onto the advantage given to them by Danny Ings should hardly be a surprise. Since Ralph Hasenhuttl took charge in December 2018, no side has squandered more points from winning positions in the Premier League. 

Still, this was a day to admire the victors, not the vanquished. Son and Kane were simply too much for Southampton; the dynamic duo have now combined for more league goals (24) than any other pairing in the competition since the South Korean joined in August 2015. 

Newcastle United 0-3 Brighton and Hove Albion: Seagulls soar thanks to Maupay

What a difference a week makes. Newcastle United were so impressive in their opener at West Ham, while Brighton were well beaten at home by Chelsea. However, the Seagulls' long journey provided plenty of positives, Graham Potter's team running out comfortable winners against accommodating hosts who failed to muster a shot on target. 

Neal Maupay had Brighton two ahead inside seven minutes, the earliest brace for a player in the Premier League since Manchester City's Edin Dzeko scored twice in the opening four minutes against Norwich City back in December 2012. 

Maupay also set up Aaron Connolly for a third goal late on, with the only disappointment for the visitors the late red card shown to the impressive Yves Bissouma, who had more touches (65) than any other player while also recording a 92 per cent passing accuracy. 

Leicester City 4-2 Burnley: Flying Foxes make it two from two

Could history be repeated this term? Leicester have won their first two games of a Premier League season for the first time since their famous title-winning campaign in 2015-16.

For Brendan Rodgers, there was a personal milestone. The Foxes boss recorded his 100th victory in the Premier League, becoming the 23rd different manager to reach a century and needing 210 games. Alex Ferguson (162 games), Kenny Dalglish (197) and Kevin Keegan (209) are the only British managers that did it faster.

James Justin scored his first league goal for Leicester while Harvey Barnes was also on target, meaning he has now been directly involved in five goals in his past three Premier League games against Burnley.

The visitors did not help themselves with Erik Pieters' own goal, Burnley's sixth in the Premier League since the start of the 2018-19 season; the most of any current team in the competition.

Liverpool dominate the nominations for the Premier League Player of the Season, Young Player of the Season and Manager of the Season awards for 2019-20.

Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year Jordan Henderson, along with team-mates Trent Alexander-Arnold and Sadio Mane, are up for the league's Player of the Season prize.

Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne, Golden Boot winner Jamie Vardy, Southampton striker Danny Ings and Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope are the other nominees.

Alexander-Arnold is also up for the inaugural Young Player of the Season, as are Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish and Chelsea duo Christian Pulisic and Mason Mount.

There are four Manchester United players on the shortlist: Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and Dean Henderson, who is on loan at Sheffield United.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp leads the nominees for the Manager of the Season prize, with Leicester City's Brendan Rodgers and Sheffield United's Chris Wilder also selected.

Frank Lampard, who took Chelsea to a fourth-place finish and lost the FA Cup final to Arsenal, is the other nominee.

Each award will be decided through a combination of fan votes and input from a panel of experts.

Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk was named the Player of the Season in 2018-19, while Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has won the manager's accolade for the past two campaigns.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer revelled in highlighting his critics' misjudgement as he celebrated Manchester United's third-place finish and qualification for the Champions League.

United beat Leicester City 2-0 on the final day of the Premier League season to pip their opponents to a top-four position.

Solskjaer's side have enjoyed a fine run of form in 2020 after looking a long shot for Europe's elite club competition earlier in the campaign.

The manager kept his belief, though, and referenced his doubters in his post-match news conference at Leicester's King Power Stadium.

"It didn't seem like you were expecting that," he said. "All the predictions were sixth or seventh. That's alright."

But Solskjaer accepts United face an even tougher ask next season when they must again improve in the league while taking on the continent's very best.

He explained: "The season next year with Champions League instead of Europa League will be different, because we want to move up the league table, so we can't take our eye off the league and rest players in the Europa League.

"There'll be more demands on the players. They'll have to work hard over the summer - of course, we've got Europe, which will be a foundation as well.

"Next season will be even more testing and challenging for them. If you play the top teams in the Champions League, you've got to get used to playing 45, 50 games for this club every season if we are to be successful."

The result meant Leicester dropped to fifth and into the Europa League despite spending much of the season second or third.

But manager Brendan Rodgers maintained his enthusiasm looking forward to their European campaign.

"Listen, we finished in the second-highest position in Premier League history for Leicester," Rodgers said. "That takes us into European competition.

"I'm really, really excited by that. I think it's that next step for this squad of players. We've probably arrived a bit earlier than what we thought, but the boys have had a very, very good season.

"Now that takes us into Europe and those experiences - playing at that level of competition, also playing in midweek - gains you that experience that make you more robust.

"Those experiences will really help this squad, so I'm excited by that. We'll look to hopefully have a great experience in [the Europa League] as well."

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers says there will be more pressure on Manchester United in Sunday's crunch clash at the King Power Stadium as they "need" rather than want to be in the Champions League.

The Foxes looked certain to be heading for a top-four finish, but have won just two of eight Premier League matches since the season resumed following a three-month break due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Leicester will start the final game of the season against United a point behind their opponents and Chelsea, who are at home to Wolves.

Rodgers insists it will be a good season for his side regardless of the outcome this weekend, while competing in the Champions League is a must for the Red Devils.

The former Liverpool manager said: "There is a difference where we want to be in the Champions League, but when you're a club like Manchester United, there’s a need to be in the Champions League.

"We want to be in it, but if we fall short, it's still been a really good season."

Rodgers is relishing the opportunity to contest a game of such magnitude.

"I've been involved in finals and two-legged games where games mean everything so I'm not new to the situation. It's just very exciting," he said.

"Sometimes things peter out in a season, but for us this is what you're looking for. Our season doesn't finish until the very end, we can finish on a high."

Rodgers added "We are playing one of the superpowers of world football with a chance to go above them and get into the Champions League. We have one last shot, and that tells you how well the players have done."

Injury-hit Leicester are set to have winger Marc Albrighton back in contention.

Tottenham put a serious dent in Leicester City's Champions League hopes as their late-season resurgence under Jose Mourinho continued, Harry Kane scoring twice in a 3-0 win on Sunday. 

Spurs climbed above Wolves into sixth place in the table as they coasted to a fourth successive home triumph in the Premier League, their best run since moving into the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

After a brace away at Newcastle United on Wednesday, Kane's clinical finishing epitomised a ruthless performance from Mourinho's side, who exposed opponents left shorthanded at the back due to injuries and suspension.

While the hosts are peaking towards the delayed conclusion of the 2019-20 campaign, Leicester are in danger of dropping out of the top four at the wrong time.

The Foxes remain fourth for now on goal difference but have played a game more than nearest rivals Manchester United – their opponents in the final round of fixtures.

Brendan Rodgers' depleted team fell behind in unfortunate circumstances; Son Heung-min's right-footed shot was heading wide of the target before taking a deflection off James Justin to wrong-foot Kasper Schmeichel. 

The visitors responded well to the early setback but only had themselves to blame for conceding again in the 37th minute, carelessly caught short of numbers as Spurs countered quickly after dealing with a corner.

Lucas Moura's throughball allowed Kane to steer a left-footed shot across the advancing Schmeichel and into the net. 

The England striker used his right to add another before the half-time interval, sublimely curling home as Leicester failed to close down the space once he cut inside to open up a shooting opportunity. 

An offside flag denied Kane a potential hat-trick but Spurs were able to coast through the second half with few concerns. In contrast, Rodgers and Leicester have plenty to ponder after this chastening defeat in the capital.

 

What does it mean? Foxes fading down the stretch

An eighth successive away game without a win leaves Leicester waiting to see where they sit by kick-off time against United, who can climb above them if they avoid defeat to West Ham at Old Trafford in midweek.

Rodgers has been hampered badly by key absences down the stretch, while a creaking defence minus full-back duo Ricardo Pereira and Ben Chilwell has now conceded seven goals in their last two road trips. Home comforts will be most welcome next weekend, but it could well be win or bust at the King Power Stadium.

Kane finishing strongly 

A Premier League season seemingly set to be cut short by injury before the coronavirus pandemic is ending impressively for Spurs' talismanic frontman. The rustiness so present when the action resumed in mid-June is now well and truly gone – Kane is back to being a well-oiled attacking machine. 

Bennett made to suffer 

Ryan Bennett's third league start for Leicester was short but not so sweet. The defender, who joined on loan from top-flight rivals Wolves in January, endured a torrid first 45 minutes on the right side of a back three before being replaced at the break, sparing him further anguish.

What's next? 

While Spurs round out their league fixtures with a short trip to Crystal Palace, Leicester have that huge showdown with United next Sunday. 

Brendan Rodgers has hailed "world class" Jose Mourinho as a huge influence ahead of Leicester City's vital Premier League trip to Tottenham.

Leicester's 2-0 win over Sheffield United on Thursday guaranteed them a top-six finish and European football next season with two games remaining.

Spurs, back in seventh, will be unable to catch them even if they are victorious on Sunday, meaning a return to the Champions League is out of reach for Mourinho, who succeeded Mauricio Pochettino in north London last November.

Rodgers worked as a youth coach during Mourinho's first spell in charge of Chelsea a decade and a half ago and he remains in no doubt about the ex-Inter and Real Madrid boss' enduring qualities.

"You have to be yourself but there's absolutely no doubt, at that time, Jose was a huge influence for me," he told reporters, with Mourinho enjoying a run of three wins from four unbeaten games following distinctly mixed returns at Spurs until this point.

"He's a world-class manager who was absolutely brilliant for me as a young coach.

"Firstly, the professionalism, how he devoted his life to football. His focus on detail was incredible.

"He was a guy who always had time for me, always communicated well with me.

"Of course, our ideas are maybe slightly different in terms of the game, but in terms of preparation and detail … he was absolutely brilliant.

"He was so good in the media in that period when I was there. He was a breath of fresh air. I learned so much from him in terms of observing him, how he works – how an elite manager operates."

Leicester are locked in a devilishly tight battle for the final two Champions League qualification spots.

They are a point behind third-placed Chelsea, who travel to face champions Liverpool next before entertaining Tottenham's fellow Europa League aspirants Wolves on the final weekend.

Goal difference has the Foxes above Manchester United, who they welcome to the King Power Stadium for a mouth-watering clash on the last day.

Champions League football could prove influential when it comes to the future of England left-back Ben Chilwell, whose thigh injury means he will sit out the rest of the campaign alongside fellow defender Christian Fuchs (groin) and playmaker James Maddison (hip).

Chelsea and Manchester City have been credited with an interest in Chilwell, but Rodgers is relaxed about the situation.

Asked whether the 23-year-old had played his last game for Leicester, he replied: "I'm not sure.

"He's a Leicester City player. He's not a player that we want to lose. So I'm quite relaxed on it.

"I'm not worried at all. We've got a fantastic squad, a squad that we want to keep together. So I don't worry."

Brendan Rodgers slammed Leicester City after a 4-1 loss to Bournemouth, labelling his side's performance as "not acceptable".

Chasing a top-four finish in the Premier League, Leicester led through Jamie Vardy before falling apart on Sunday.

Junior Stanislas scored a penalty, Dominic Solanke a brace and Jonny Evans an own goal as Caglar Soyuncu was sent off, and Leicester will fall to fifth in the table if Manchester United beat Southampton on Monday.

Rodgers was furious with his side, who have won just one of seven games in all competitions since the season resumed last month.

"It's not a happy changing room and it shouldn't be, because that is not acceptable, to deliver that level, especially when you work so well," the Leicester City manager told LCFC TV.

"Like I say, it was the attitude. We didn't show the right spirit and that's something that we've showed consistently. But, yes, that was bitterly disappointing.

"[The Sheffield United game on Thursday] will be a great challenge for us because we need to show a greater level of physicality and mentality. That'll be a really good test.

"We had a great result at Bramall Lane earlier in the season and now this is a game where we've really got to show our mettle and look to get working again."

After hosting Sheffield United, Leicester have games against Tottenham and Manchester United to finish the season.

Rodgers apologised to the club's fans for his side's performance, lamenting the second-half showing.

"Listen, first of all, I apologise to the supporters. I don't think I've ever had to do that in my time here," he said.

"We've always been a tough team, mentally and physically, and tried to then play football, but to collapse like we did in the second half was bitterly disappointing."

Mikel Arteta has been outstanding in coping with the pressure at Arsenal and shown "courage" in his initial months at the helm, says Brendan Rodgers.

Leicester City play away to Arteta's Arsenal side in the Premier League on Tuesday.

They won November's reverse fixture 2-0 as Unai Emery's tenure with the Gunners was drawing to a close, with Arteta taking charge the following month.

Arsenal have won four straight games in all competitions ahead of the Leicester clash at the Emirates Stadium, and Foxes boss Rodgers has been impressed.

"I think Mikel has done very, very well since he's gone in," said Rodgers, whose team are third in the table.

"He's gone into a club with huge expectations, which he knows from being a player there. He's gone in on his first job, into a huge task, and I think how he's dealt with it so far has been outstanding.

"From a tactical perspective, he's made it very clear how they want to play. The style, you can see.

"That is not an easy style to put in place and implement, especially at a club that want to be challenging straight away as well.

"His courage since he's gone in, to want to develop that. They've played with a couple of different systems but the style has always remained the same. 

"That is something that bodes well for the future and for him."

Leicester have said James Maddison and Ben Chilwell are major injury doubts for the game, with Chelsea and Manchester United breathing down their necks in the race for a top-four finish.

Saturday's 3-0 home win over Crystal Palace ended a four-match winless run since the Premier League's resumption and Rodgers has confidence ahead of the last five games of the campaign.

Asked if his side were capable of finishing the job to secure Champions League football, Rodgers said: "There is absolutely no doubt.

"We've shown over 33 games our talent. Okay, we are maybe missing some players that have helped us along that way but as a squad we're very focused on achieving it.

"We will fight to the very, very last whistle to finish as high as we possibly can."

Chelsea are one point adrift of Leicester, with a resurgent Manchester United three behind.

Seventh-placed Arsenal have moved to within six points of United and are still hoping to challenge for a European place.

James Maddison and Ben Chilwell are "big doubts" for Leicester City when they travel to play Arsenal on Tuesday, says manager Brendan Rodgers.

Leicester won the reverse fixture 2-0 in November, with Maddison scoring and Chilwell playing the full game.

But the two England internationals are unlikely to be fit this time around, with the Foxes embroiled in a competitive battle to finish in the Premier League's top four.

Maddison injured his hip ahead of last week's defeat at Everton and had to miss Saturday's 3-0 home win over Crystal Palace, a game in which Chilwell had to be withdrawn at half-time.

"We've got doubts over James Maddison and Ben Chilwell," said Rodgers.

"They are the two that could struggle but we'll see how they are [on Monday]. We just have to wait and see. There are big doubts over both.

"Ben's is his plantar fascia, the bottom of his foot, which is giving him pain. We'll just have to assess that and see what the specialists say on it.

"You can play through it but of course there are times you get a real bad pain in it, so it's just trying to manage that.

"They will both be big doubts ahead of the game but we'll give them every chance."

The win over Palace was crucial for third-placed Leicester, who had failed to win their first four matches since the top-flight's resumption.

"It was important, but it always has to be about performance," added Rodgers.

"We've been down on our luck lately and I felt the win was coming. We knew we had to improve, but the confidence it gives you is huge."

Chelsea have moved to within two points of them while a resurgent Manchester United are three behind with five matches to go in the race to secure Champions League football.

Jamie Vardy scored his 100th Premier League goal as he netted against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The Leicester City striker brought up the landmark on his 205th appearance in the division, putting the Champions League-chasing Foxes 2-0 to the good.

Few of the former England international's ton have been so straightforward, as Harvey Barnes capitalised upon a slip from Palace defender Mamadou Sakho to leave Vardy with a simple finish.

It makes him the 29th player to reach a century of goals in the Premier League and the 16th to do so for a single club. 

Vardy now has 20 this season, making the 33-year-old the leading scorer in England's top flight.

His achievement is made all the more remarkable by the fact that Vardy was still playing non-League football at the age of 25.

Brendan Rodgers defended Jamie Vardy's form and said his focus was on Leicester City as a whole amid their goalscoring struggles.

Since returning to action earlier this month, Leicester have scored just one goal in three games, having bowed out in the FA Cup quarter-finals with a 1-0 loss to Chelsea on Sunday.

Vardy is without a goal in those three games, but has scored 19 times in 33 matches this season, to go with six assists.

Asked about the forward's form, Rodgers backed Vardy and said he wanted more from his entire attack, not just the Englishman.

"There's lots of focus on Jamie, but this is not just about Jamie, this is the responsibility of the team and it's my responsibility to find ways in which we can find ways to increase our goalscoring," he told a news conference.

"It's the responsibility of everyone. I think if you look at his record in terms of his goals and what he has done up until this point, he hasn't needed a lot of action, he's a true finisher.

"He is not one of those players who is involved in the link-up, in the game. That's not his strength. His strength is in the box and running from deep in behind.

"Of course we want to get him more service, but we are looking at ways to develop and get our wingers back to being involved and scoring and creating goals, and of course our midfield players.

"A lot of spotlight [is] on Jamie, but it is not just the striker, it's the team's contribution. So that's something we need to improve."

Leicester City, who are third in the table, are away to Everton in the Premier League on Wednesday.

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers insists he is paying no heed to the possibility of playing home games at neutral venues amid suggestions the region will be placed under a local lockdown.

Three of the Foxes' remaining seven Premier League fixtures - against Crystal Palace, Sheffield United and Manchester United - are due to be staged at the King Power Stadium.

However, a spike in COVID-19 cases in the city of Leicester - where 866 of their 2,987 positive cases have been reported in the two weeks to June 23 - has led to the possibility of the region being placed back under a localised lockdown.

That could prevent Champions League-chasing Leicester from playing at their own ground and while Rodgers acknowledged his players are prepared for any eventuality, he is trying not to focus on the possibility of playing at neutral venues.

"It's something I'm not really thinking of, to be honest," Rodgers told reporters at a news conference on Monday.

"It's all hypothetical at the moment so there's nothing really to answer on. We'll just get on with our work.

"Nothing's changed really in terms of how we've been working thus far throughout this situation.

"I've always said, we'll react accordingly. We have to have agility in this period.

"In this moment in time we're in the safest place we can be in terms of our work, the stadium also, it's a very safe environment for the games to be in. We'll just keep working until we're told otherwise."

Rodgers tested positive for coronavirus himself in March but recovered during the Premier League's hiatus.

Though the region where Leicester play is struggling to contain COVID-19, Rodgers believes the players are as well protected as they can be.

"As a football club, we're very protected, the players and everyone, we're still in a bubble where the players are in, they're tested twice a week," Rodgers said after Sunday's FA Cup quarter-final loss to Chelsea.

"They're virtually in and back home again, a lot of them don't live in that central Leicester area, it's more urban and outside of that.

"You're always concerned nationally in terms of COVID and trying to ensure the rates are down, but I think we're in a position here at the club, like most other clubs, we're very much protected.

"We couldn't be in a better place so that gives confidence to continue your work."

Brendan Rodgers hailed "an incredible moment" in the history of Liverpool after his former club's Premier League title triumph.

The Reds' 30-year drought was ended after Manchester City's loss to Chelsea on Thursday left Jurgen Klopp's side with an unassailable 23-point lead.

It is the Anfield club's first top-flight championship of the Premier League era, having endured a handful of near-misses.

One such agonising failure came in the 2013-14 season, when Rodgers was at the helm and Liverpool missed out by two points after winning just one of their final three games.

With that experience under his belt, Leicester City boss Rodgers knows what the triumph will mean to the club and he hailed their achievement.

"Having witnessed it first-hand [being Liverpool manager], it's an incredible moment in their history," he said ahead of the Foxes' FA Cup clash with Chelsea on Sunday.

"Having felt it while I was there, the desire for it, I'm delighted for Jurgen, and in particular these last few years going so close.

"I'm delighted for Jordan Henderson, and for the supporters.

"Wherever you travel in the world as Liverpool manager, they are there in their thousands.

"I'm pleased for the owners too. They came into it new, they're fantastic owners."

Craig Dawson's acrobatic stoppage-time goal earned Watford a 1-1 Premier League draw against Leicester City as Ben Chilwell's late stunner was cancelled out. 

Saturday's contest at Vicarage Road was goalless until the final minute when Chilwell thrashed home a superb strike from just inside the box. 

But the Hornets, who beat runaway leaders Liverpool 3-0 in their previous home game, had the final say as Dawson slammed in a sideways scissor-kick from close range for his first Watford goal. 

Nigel Pearson's side now sit a point clear of the bottom three, with Brendan Rodgers' Foxes are six points ahead of fourth-placed Chelsea.
