Liverpool are returning to something close to their best form but they will find Leicester a tougher nut to crack than Swansea. Puel's men have not been at their best lately, but they will post Klopp's men plenty of problems in a game which looks likely to be a high scoring one.

Liverpool and Leicester met at Anfield back in September of last year and the signs that Leicester were going to struggle as defending Premier League champions were all too apparent after witnessing this performance. Jurgen Klopp’s men ran out easy 4-1 winners at Anfield with Roberto Firmino scoring the first and last goal of the match.
