Gerrard scores, Liverpool comes back for 3-1 win over Leicester City
LEICESTER, England (AP) — Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard made a goal-scoring return to the starting lineup as his team came from behind to beat 10-man Leicester 3-1 in the Premier League on Tuesday.
The 34-year-old midfielder, who is yet to sign a contract for next season, powered in the decisive second goal in the 54th minute at Leicester.
Liverpool fell behind in the 22nd when Leonardo Ulloa's shot hit the post and rebounded into the net off goalkeeper Simon Mignolet.
But Adam Lallana leveled four minutes later and — after Gerrard's goal — Leicester had Wes Morgan sent off for dragging down Rickie Lambert.
With a man advantage, Jordan Henderson completed Liverpool's victory in the 83rd.
