Brendan Rodgers' high-flying Foxes visit Anfield in a top-of-the-table clash as we return from the international break.
Team news (via Sky Sports)
Liverpool: Fabinho and Thiago Alcantara have a chance to play in this game but Trent Alexander-Arnold and Jordan Henderson have been ruled out. Andy Robertson is fit to play but Mohamed Salah will also be absent after testing positive for the coronavirus a few days ago.
Leicester City: Rodgers should be able to welcome Timothy Castagne and Wesley Fofana back this weekend after recent problems. Ricardo Pereira is also closing in on a return but this match will come too soon for him, while Wilfred Ndidi, Daniel Amartey and Caglar Soyuncu are also sidelined.
Stats to know (via Opta)
- The Reds are unbeaten in their last 63 Premier League games at Anfield - avoiding defeat tomorrow would break the all-time club record.
- However, it was Leicester City who beat Bob Paisley's magnificent team back in 1980 and the Foxes have a chance to re-create history.
- Home and away, only 2 teams have conceded more than the champions so far, with the Reds having only kept one clean sheet in their last 13 top-flight outings stretching back to last season.
- Leicester have enjoyed their best-ever start to a top-flight season with 18 points from eight games - even better than that title-winning campaign back in 2016.
- They've won their last 6 games in all competitions and will be flying high heading into this game as the PL leaders.
Dimitar Berbatov, BetFair: Liverpool 1-2 Leicester City
"I will be interested to see how Liverpool replace their missing players but whoever comes in needs to be at the top of their game. Leicester play great football and Jamie Vardy, who is flying, can exploit Liverpool’s makeshift defence."
Michael Owen, Metro: Liverpool 3-1 Leicester City
"As we all know, Liverpool come into this with a few key players missing. One huge positive that has come from this is the emergence of Diogo Jota. He’s been in incredible form and will have the platform to play a huge role here again. The Reds are a bit light in midfield but Jurgen Klopp still has options, so the team should be strong enough. I’m expecting an open match, and I think Liverpool will win with both teams scoring."
Taha Memon, Tribuna.com: Liverpool 2-1 Leicester City
"Our 63-game Anfield record is on the line tomorrow. Leicester are top of the table and we are missing a lot of key players but not for one second do I think Klopp's men will fold easily. It should be a tough game for us but I think the champions will make a statement and come out with all 3 points in a cagey game. Mane to score for sure!"
Quotes from the manager (Via Liverpool FC)
Jurgen Klopp: "Of course, it's eight matchdays and Leicester not only showed last year how good they can be, this year again. They changed their style slightly maybe because of the injuries they had.
"Good example of how you can deal with an 'injury crisis'. Did really well, are in a good moment, have a clear idea how they want to play. It's a tough one and, of course, they are contenders for everything. They were last year for a long, long period and this year they are more experienced in situations."
