Football My mind is blown! Jones pulls off sensational double whammy as Liverpool inch towards the elusive Champions League places in English Football!

Liverpool have continued their quest for Champions League football in the next season and added pressure on their rivals by winning 3-0 against Leicester at the King Power on Monday, thanks to two goals from Curtis Jones. Liverpool displayed fine form with Trent Alexander-Arnold’s new hybrid role as a deep-lying playmaker that rounded off with a stunning strike. Jurgen Klopp’s men need a late-season collapse from Newcastle or Manchester United, but the seven-game winning streak from the Reds has upped the pressure on their rivals, who both have three games remaining to Liverpool’s two. Sadly, Leicester’s Premier League days appear numbered, with the team remaining two points from safety with two games remaining and exposed defensive frailties. Luis Diaz was allowed to race onto a long ball forward from Alisson Becker before it broke for Mohamed Salah to cross for the unmarked Jones to tap in at the far post. Scoring goals has not been Leicester’s problem this season, but they looked blunt in attack, facing another daunting task when they travel to Newcastle next Monday. Liverpool’s upturn in form and Alexander-Arnold’s new role as a deep-lying playmaker in midfield were displayed in his quality on the ball with a sumptuous strike into the top corner 19 minutes from time. Salah tapped a free-kick into his path. Salah was sent clean through on goal by Cody Gakpo, but he missed narrowly. However, the visitors got the main job done with another three points ensuring they will at least play Europa League football next season.
