Liverpool clinch 17th straight league win after James Milner heroics - in pictures

Stoppage-time winner against Leicester City extends Reds' lead at the top of the Premier League table

James Milner scored a stoppage-time winner as Liverpool secured their 17th consecutive league triumph and moved eight points clear at the top of the Premier League with a thrilling 2-1 victory over Leicester.

Jurgen Klopp's side ruined Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers' first return to Liverpool after being replaced by the German in 2015.

Liverpool took the lead in the 40th minute after Milner's long ball was misjudged by Leicester defender Jonny Evans and Sadio Mane scored in his eighth goal of the season.

Mane now has 50 goals in 100 Premier League games for Liverpool, making the Senegal winger the 10th player to reach the milestone.

James Maddison equalised in the 80th minute when he collected Ayoze Perez's pass and drove his shot under Adrian's weak attempt.

Five minutes into stoppage-time, Marc Albrighton took the ball away from his own goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel and then clipped Mane, with Milner converting the penalty after a VAR review.
