Wout Faes became the fourth player to score two own goals in one Premier League match as Liverpool came from behind to beat Leicester City 2-1 in the Premier League at Anfield. The impressive Foxes took just four minutes to draw first blood through Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, but Faes turned into his own net twice before the break to settle an energetic contest. In doing so, Faes followed in the footsteps of Michael Proctor, Jonathan Walters and Jamie Carragher – the other three players to score multiple goals in one Premier League game – but the wasteful Reds could count themselves fortunate as Leicester also failed to make periods of attacking promise pay. Dewsbury-Hall’s shot into the ground went over Alisson Becker into the back of the net to silence the Anfield crowd, who were not blessed with excellence from those in red, as the hosts struggled to cope with Leicester’s effective pressing and balls over the top.
The Foxes’ momentum was briefly disrupted by a 15th-minute injury to Daka, and Danny Ward barely had a save to make, although he was thanking his lucky stars for the offside flag after a poor attempt at a clearance allowed Mohamed Salah to fire home in the 26th minute.In the 38th minute, ex-Liverpool man Ward would make his voice heard across Merseyside when shouting to claim a Trent Alexander-Arnold cross, but Faes instead stuck a sliding leg out and helplessly watched the ball loop over the Leicester keeper into the back of the net. Undeniably against the run of play, Liverpool were level, and just four minutes later, Faes would comically channel his inner Carragher to join the exclusive club of players to score multiple own goals in a Premier League game. The lively Darwin Nunez was played through by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and even though the wasteful Uruguayan’s chipped effort came back off the post, Faes was on hand to inadvertently poke home the rebound into the roof of the net to put Liverpool ahead.
