Key note: “Kevin Keegan headed Liverpool into the lead against a lively Leicester City team at Filbert Street today – his goal coming just a couple of minutes after he had missed a twice-taken penalty-kick. Liverpool made one change following their mid-week win at Leeds, bringing in Heighway after injury and dropping Boersma down to substitute.” (Liverpool Echo: August 30, 1975)
