Leicester City's besieged players gave a distinctly 2015-16 performance tonight as they dispatched Liverpool 3-1 at home. They had slipped into the relegation zone prior to kick-off and have now risen to 15th spot.
Liverpool meanwhile now look likely to relinquish 5th spot to Manchester United who are a point behind with a game in hand.
Jamie Carragher, who excoriated Leicester City for sacking the manager who had won the League title, gave an interesting on-the-spot reaction at full-time.
Tonight's game, he said, was a rarity. It's unusual to watch a match and draw the conclusion that both sets of players should be hanging their heads in shame at the final whistle. But that is what Carragher believes.
Liverpool should hang their heads in shame for traditional reasons. They lost a game badly against supposedly inferior opposition. To a team of players who have been angrily written off as "average" many times on television over the past few days.
Leicester should hang their heads in shame for rather more unorthodox reasons, namely, because of how good they were.
I don't think I've ever seen a game of football where two teams should come off the pitch and hang their heads in shame. Liverpool for how bad they were. Leicester for how good they were, on the back of how bad they were, just through effort and commitment.
"Two teams should come off the pitch and hang their heads in shame."#MNF reaction on Sky Sports 1 now! https://t.co/ULYtOEdAOd
