Chris Taylor scored the only goal of the game in the second half and the Lions survived a determined assault from the visitors to hold on to all three points.

"We had to weather the storm and we defended very well," Jackett said. "But then we started to create chances of our own and eventually made it a dominant performance.

"The goal came at the right time and gave us something to hold onto, to see the game out.

"We showed some guts, we had to be at our very best against a Leicester side who have real quality across the board.

"We defended very well in injury time, there were balls flying in all over the place but my two centre-halves handled that very well.

"Danny Shittu has been a key player for us. He played a captain's role out there and was solid at the back all day.

"Darius Henderson is coming back soon and that will help us because we need to maintain our position and push forward to build on this great start."

think Liverpool should start trying alternative therapy now, given that Sturridge's hips and knees are apparently unfathomable to modern medicine. Voodoo, acupuncture, healing oils, rolling in the snow after a hot bath, its all got to be worth a go now.
