The defending EPL champ dropped to third place, seven points behind leader Liverpool and a point behind Tottenham, with a 2-1 loss to Leicester capped by Ricardo Pereira's 18-yard

losses this season while Liverpool remains undefeated. Liverpool won its Boxing Day game, 4-0, over Newcastle while Tottenham beat Bournemouth, 5-0.
