Both teams are on the hunt for the ever so tight top four this season and a win for both teams will go a huge way to achieving that goal.

The visitors are on a seven-game unbeaten streak against The Foxes including a dismissive 3-0 victory at Anfield earlier this season, but with their inconsistency in attack and their fragilities defensively, Leicester will fancy themselves to cause an upset.

Team News

Leicester City

With the injury to James Justin seeming to be an ACL tear he will not feature as well as Ayoze Perez, the other fox who was forced off due to injury during their FA cup tie against Brighton is also unlikely to be available.

Jonny Evans, Ricardo Pereira and Harvey Barnes are all expected to return to the starting line-up after they were rested mid-week.

Liverpool

Liverpool fans will be delighted to hear the news of Diogo Jota recovering quickly from injury but it is still unlikely he will make an appearance at the King Power.

Also, another huge injury blow to The Reds with Fabinho out with a slight muscle injury, therefore it is likely new signings Ben Davies and Ozan Kabak may both make their debuts having not yet played any first-team football since arriving late in the January transfer window.
