Leicester City chopped away at Liverpool's lead at the top of the Premier League by beating Everton on Sunday. Raheem Sterling's 22nd-minute strike was quickly cancelled out by Jetro Willems but when Kevin de Bruyne's sledgehammer shot restored their lead late on it seemed the points were in the bag before Liverpool player Jonjo Shelvey's superb curling effort left them frustrated.
All that could be said for sure after Brighton were beaten at a surprisingly fraught Anfield is that this was the day the reigning Premier League champions disappeared from Jürgen Klopp's rear-view mirror.
It was a nervy record-extending 14th successive Premier League win at home for Liverpool, who missed a string of chances either side of Van Dijk's double before they were forced to defend desperately in the closing stages. From the resulting free kick Lewis Dunk rolled in a weird finish to make it 2-1, and substitute goalkeeper Adrian was put under severe pressure late on. He was the leader in attack and at the back for Liverpool and when they went down to 10 men late in the game their leader stood tall.
Adrian denied Aaron Mooy but nearly spilled a routine effort into his own goal as Liverpool held on for their 13th win from their first 14 games this season.
"We started OK but not good enough for how we really want to be".

We've got work to do but I'm excited. "We have had the lead in so many games and we haven't been able to win those games. It was hard in the first half, they sat in but we tried to stay positive and play our offensive game", he said.

The Lightning also is on a back to back, as they had to face the Capitals on Friday and then host the Hurricanes on Saturday. Sergachev worked his way down to the net and was on the spot for a loose puck to easily deposit 4:28 into the second period.

"They had a lot of possession and we had to work really hard. We can not change it but for me it's not 100% right".
"We don't think about the points gap or anything".
"We brought on a frozen goalkeeper". Everybody sitting here is probably not really warm yet, and then you imagine you go on in shorts, a really thin shirt and some gloves which are not made for keeping you warm, and then, some people let the free-kick happen.
Liverpool's star goalkeeper was sent off for a deliberate handball and from the resulting free kick Lewis Dunk made it 2-1. With his cold feet, he couldn't shoot the ball as far as he wanted! It kept it a bit interesting. I am very pleased about that, happy about the effort of the boys and proud of the desire they showed.
The Reds have made a flying start to the new campaign and they are now the clear favourites to win the top flight title after having come so close to claiming the trophy last season.
"I thought it was a performance of great heart, courage and quality against a fantastic team, and at times the Anfield crowd had to get behind their side because we were really in the game, especially after the sending-off", Potter said.
