Steven Gerrard marked his Liverpool return by scoring as the Reds came from behind to win at bottom club Leicester.
The hosts led when Leonardo Ulloa's shot hit the post, then bounced off the back of keeper Simon Mignolet's head.
But Liverpool equalised as Adam Lallana netted after Rickie Lambert's knock down, before Gerrard slotted in from a poor Wes Morgan clearance.
Morgan was sent off for a foul on Lambert, then Jordan Henderson sealed a deserved Reds win.
Former Nottingham Forest defender Morgan can have few complaints after wrestling the Liverpool striker to the floor soon after gifting Gerrard his goal.
The Liverpool skipper, who is mulling over a new contract offer, had been left out of the starting line-up for Saturday's 1-0 home win over Stoke, raising speculation about his Anfield future.
But the 34-year-old looked refreshed and reinvigorated as he led his team to their first league away win since 19 October.
Brendan Rodgers's side move up to eighth in the table, while Leicester remain bottom, two points from safety and without a win in nine top-flight games.
