Liverpool comfortably saw off Leicester 3-0 at Anfield despite the absence of several key men.
The Foxes have been in impressive form lately and had been tipped to run the Reds close.
Brendan Rodgers, returning to Merseyside, could've seen his side go back to the top with a win.
But the defending Premier League champions were in control from early on and took the lead when Jonny Evans headed into his own net from a corner.
Diogo Jota then doubled their advantage shortly before the break when he nodded home from Andy Robertson's cross.
The Reds continued to control the game in the second-half and Roberto Firmino made it 3-0 late in the game when he scored from a corner.

Did not ned anything spectacular but was always immaculately positioned
No longer has the pace to get on the overlap and kept thing simple
Elegant proof that half the job of a centre-half is to read a game
Little a bit fortunate to escape with what looked like an early handball
Another assist further proof he is the best left-back in the league
Had more than made his mark before injured early in second half
Was a picture of calm and authority in midfield and rarely took a mis-step
Squandered a good first half chance but imposed himself on the game
Has made a sensational start to life at Anfield and was always a danger
Decorated proceedings with an array of very clever short passes before his goal
A persistent threat and will be wondering just how he did not add to his total
Williams (Keita 54 mins) 6
Minamino (Mane 89 mins)
Origi (Jota 89 mins)
SUBS NOT USED: Adrian (gk), Tsimikas, Phillips, Clarkson
LEICESTER CITY (3-4-2-1)
Shocked by his own team-mate but had pulled off a string of top saves
Had his hands full and let Mane get in behind far too often
Inexplicable error heading into his own net and not comfortable all night
Made a couple of crucial interventions but defending last his limit
Booked. Managed to make a few forward runs and harshly booked for foul on Milner
Did not find his range with his passing and not overly influential
Booked. Found it tough going but did manage to nick possession now and again
Was mainly restricted to defensive work which he carried out well
Kicking himself for missing a gilt-edged chance after Liverpool opener
The odd pleasant flick and touch but could not assert himself greatly
Mainly frustrating evening and never really tested a makeshift defence
Praet (Barnes 63 mins) 6
Under (Fuchs 63 mins) 6
SUBS NOT USED: Ward (gk), Morgan, Iheanacho, Choudhury, Thomas
