Watching Klopp? Leicester boss Shakespeare: Coutinho halftime hook decided Cup win”

Manager Shakespeare also admitted the tie swung in his side's favour in the second 45 minutes while the Foxes were helped by Philippe Coutinho's half-time substitution after he had dictated the game in the first period.

The Foxes booked their place in the fourth round of the competition thanks to second-half strikes from Shinji Okazaki and Islam Slimani.

Coutinho's presence had helped Liverpool to dominate the first half, but their wastefulness in front of goal meant a level scoreline rather than a game that was already settled by the time the player was removed with an eye to the weekend's league game against Leicester and next week's Champions League fixture.

Jurgen Klopp revealed after the match that his plan was always to withdraw Coutinho, but Shakespeare says emerging for the second half and not seeing the playmaker involved gave his side a welcome boost. Of course first half we thought it was going to be Liverpool because we did lead a charmed life.

The Foxes, in the first 45-minutes of their triumphant 2-0 victory over Liverpool on Tuesday night, had their backs against the wall as they battled to withstand the Reds nearly constant onslaught on their goal, predominantly through Coutinho's contribution in the offensive third.

"We knew at half time we had to regroup". I was just delighted to get in at half-time and then even more delighted to see they took Coutinho off. "We needed better hold-up play from the centre-forwards second half". The hosts lost the first half on the run of play and drew the second, but where it counted they won the game and advanced in the cup.

"We spoke to the boys about being more aggressive, getting in Liverpool's faces a bit more and playing with a bit more intent". Shinji got his chance due to an injury to Leonardo Ulloa, but I thought that was key moment for us as well.
