Gomez, Lineker and more: Twitter reacts as Liverpool beat Leicester

Joe Gomez and Gary Lineker take to Twitter after Liverpool ease to a 1-0 victory over Leicester City at Anfield

Liverpool ended Leicester City’s impressive winning run after a 1-0 victory over the Foxes at Anfield on Boxing Day.

Christian Benteke started from the bench before the £32.5m summer signing replaced injured Divock Origi in the first half on Merseyside.
