Liverpool face a stern test as they welcome Brendan Rodgers’ high-flying Leicester City to Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp’s men have been hit hard by injury and will also be without star man Mo Salah on Sunday night following his positive Covid-19 result.
The German boss, who replaced Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers in 2015, will have a selection headache on his hands – with the likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez and Jordan Henderson missing, although he has been boosted by the return of left-back Andy Robertson.
Both sides come into this game in solid form, although Rodgers will be confident his side can capitalise on Liverpool’s defensive fragility on the break.
The Foxes have enjoyed a fantastic season and are currently on a run of six consecutive wins and will return to the top of the table above Tottenham with a win. Liverpool will go second – level with Jose Mourinho’s side – should they put the visitors to the sword.
