THE TEAM NEWS

LEICESTER

  • Leicester suffered their first defeat in their last 12 matches in all competitions as they lost 3-1 to an in-form Man City side on Saturday.
  • Barnes picked a knock in that match and is rated doubtful so Brendan Rodgers may be forced into a change with Albrighton likely to come in
  • Rodgers will be desperate to get one over his former side especially after coming close to holding them to a draw two months ago at Anfield.

Predicted line-up (4-1-4-1): Schmeichel; Ricardo Pereira, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell; Ndidi; Ayoze Perez, Maddison, Tielemans, Albrighton; Vardy

Unavailable: James (Injured)

Doubtful: Barnes (Injured)

LIVERPOOL

  • Liverpool return to domestic action after they sealed an extra-time win in the FIFA Club World Cup against Flamengo in Qatar on Saturday.
  • Jurgen Klopp will assess the fitness of his players on their return from Qatar and may consider one or two adjustments in midfield if any.
  • The club have meanwhile moved to sign forward Minamino from Salzburg but the Japanese star will not be available until New Year's Day.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dijk, Robertson; Keita, Wijnaldum, Henderson; Salah, Firmino, Mane

Unavailable: Clyne (Injured), Matip (Injured), Fabinho (Injured), Lovren (Injured)

Doubtful: Brewster (Injured), Oxlade-Chamberlain (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Leicester's three defeats this season have come at the hands of Man Utd, Liverpool and Man City, and they will have to raise their game if they are to upset Jurgen Klopp's men. While Liverpool could potentially be fatigued, this should be an entertaining game once again with goals at both ends.
