Jonny Evans helped Liverpool score their first goal on the night as he flicked the ball into his own net while he was too concerned about marking Mane from getting to Robertson's cross.
Diogo Jota made it two for Jurgen Klopp in the 41st minute as he ghosted Leicester City's defense and got to Robertson's cross and head it home to make it 2-0.
Leicester City took some possession after the first half in a bit to get back into the game but recently criticized Firmino rose to his team's help to kill off the game.
Milner's corner kick in the 86th minute was met with Firmino's head as the Brazilian sent a well-placed header into the bottom left corner of the net to beat Schmeichel.
Liverpool now shifts focus to the UEFA Champions League as they face Atalanta while Leicester City focuses on UEFA Europa League as they travel to Braga.
