While Brendan Rodgers' Foxes tackled unbeaten Premier League leaders Liverpool on Saturday, the Under-18s welcomed Chelsea to Belvoir Drive in U18 Premier League South earlier in the day.

City's Development Squad visit Tottenham Hotspur in Premier League 2 next Friday (7pm BST kick-off) and the Women's side head to Lewes in the FA Women's Championship on Sunday (2pm BST kick-off).

Watch extended highlights from the Foxes' 2-1 defeat to Liverpool at Anfield.

Leicester City were denied a point at Anfield by James Milner's 95th-minute penalty on a dramatic afternoon which ended in a 2-1 defeat by table-toppers Liverpool on Saturday.

The Reds, who have now won their last 17 matches in the Premier League, took the lead through a breakaway effort from Senegal international Sadio Mané before the half-time interval. 

However, as City began to settle on Merseyside, the visitors posed more of a threat in the second half and deservedly levelled through James Maddison's smart effort with 10 minutes to play.

In the latter moments, deep into added time, Marc Albrighton was adjudged to have fouled Mané in the box, gifting Milner the chance to prolong Liverpool's winning run in the 95th minute.

A three-game unbeaten run for Leicester City's Under-18s came to an end on Saturday as 2017 and 2018 U18 Premier League champions Chelsea sealed a 4-1 win at Belvoir Drive.

Joe Haigh's close-range finish put the Blues in front at the Club's training ground, before Shane Flynn stepped up to convert a spot-kick for the young Foxes, making it 1-1 on the hour-mark.

Despite working their way back into the game, City's youngsters lost their lead quickly as the visitors were awarded a penalty of their own just two minutes later.

While Oliver Bosworth saved Armando Broja's initial effort, the Blues man was there to convert the rebound before Charlie Wiggett and George Nunn added to Chelsea's goals tally.
