THE TEAM NEWS

LIVERPOOL

  • Liverpool's relentless run of league victories continues although they needed a fortuitous goal against Sheff Utd to extend their run to 16.
  • They picked up a win in midweek in Europe also as the fixtures come thick and fast so Jurgen Klopp may consider a couple of rotations here.
  • Matip should be fit enough to return here while it would be no surprise to see Milner or potentially even Keita rotate back into the side.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Adrian; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum; Salah, Firmino, Mane

Unavailable: Clyne (Injured), Shaqiri (Injured)

Doubtful: Alisson (Injured), Matip (Injured)

LEICESTER

  • Leicester come into this clash in great form as they thrashed Newcastle 5-0 last week and sit in the top four ahead of this round of games.
  • Brendan Rodgers will be fired up to get one over his old team and he will be hoping playmaker Maddison can return from injury for this one.
  • He may contemplate bringing Albrighton and possibly Choudhury back into the side for their strong defensive capabilities at Anfield.

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

Unavailable: Amartey (Injured), James (Injured)

Doubtful: Maddison (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Liverpool are in sparkling form at the moment but Leicester will pose a major threat to this 16-game winning run in the league. Brendan Rodgers' men are playing well and they will cause the Liverpool defence problems which could easily lead to them snatching a point from the league leaders.
