Ragnar Klavan was Liverpool’s hero with a late winner against Burnley on Monday.
The Reds, without Roberto Firmino and injured duo Philippe Coutinho and Mohamed Salah in their starting line-up, led through Sadio Mane’s second-half strike.
Johann Gudmundsson equalised with a late header, but Estonian centre-back Klavan scored in injury time.
Leicester beat Huddersfield 3-0, with Riyad Mahrez scoring and then assisting Islam Slimani, who was making only his second Premier League start of the season, because Jamie Vardy was out injured. Marc Albrighton scored their late third.
