Liverpool will look to keep the pressure on Premier League leaders Manchester City but will need to be at their best for this delicate trip to the King Power Stadium.
Leicester scared City on Boxing Day by almost wiping out a 4-0 deficit, reducing the score to 4-3 before finally falling to a 6-3 defeat.
Brendan Rodgers’ side are currently in 10th place after having had a inconsistent season so far, but will be highly motivated following their loss to Liverpool on penalties in their Carabao Cup quarter-final last week.
This was Liverpool’s most recent game as the Merseyside club canceled their Boxing Day fixture against Leeds due to a COVID-19 outbreak among the opposing team.
Leicester won the corresponding encounter 3-1 last season after goals from Jamie Vardy, James Maddison and Harvey Barnes, but it was their only victory against Liverpool in their last nine attempts.
Liverpool quartet Virgil van Dijk, Fabinho, Thiago Alcantara and Curtis Jones all returned from COVID-19 isolation, Klopp confirmed on Monday. Jordan Henderson has also recovered from the illness which forced him to miss the 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur.
However, Andy Robertson will serve Game 1 of a three-game suspension following his red card in that game.
Leicester faced a bunch of absentees. Rodgers is without five defenders – Jonny Evans, Ryan Bertrand, Caglar Soyuncu, Ricardo Pereira and James Justin – as well as forwards Harvey Barnes and Patson Daka. Jamie Vardy has also been enjoying the past few weeks, as Leicester face a second game in just over 48 hours.
