liverpool vs leicester city

A big game is expected to go down at the Anfield later today when Liverpool welcome former Premier League winners Leicester City.

The game has been pre-empted by the shock defeat suffered by title contenders Manchester City to Newcastle at the James’ Park on Tuesday night.

This, therefore, means that Liverpool are no longer top of the league table with four points lead but with seven points which make the game against the Foxes a big one as a drop in point could reduce the seven-point lead.

The scenario surrounding the game makes it more of a difficult game for the Reds than it ought to be as they are now faced with pressure to deliver a win so as to maintain the four-point lead.

However, it is more of a difficult game for the Reds than their visitors knowing that Leicester City are not the focus at this time and they may not be the actual losers.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has got a selection headache knowing that Dejan Loveren and Joe Gomez are out to injury while Virgil Van Dijk is also battling with fitness issues.

Howbeit, the following are expected to line up for the Reds later on Wednesday night.

Predicted line-up: Alisson Becker, Andrew Robertson, Joel Matip, Fabinho, Rafa Camacho, Georginio Wijnaldum, Jordan Henderson, Xherdan Shaqiri, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah.
