Liverpool vs Leicester: Probable XI, prediction and result

Reds face a test of their EPL title credentials at Anfield on Sunday.

Latest EPL standings as well as fixtures and results are found below the predictions.

It’s something you don’t get to say very often these days - that Liverpool are taking on a team that are top of the English Premier League.

But so it is this Sunday, as former Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers brings his top-of-the-pile Leicester to Merseyside for the game of the weekend.

Jurgen Klopp’s men were held to a draw at another title rival in Manchester City a fortnight ago.

It sent the reigning champions into the international break third in the table and unbeaten in their last four following their shock catastrophe at Aston Villa.

The Reds are enduring a right old time of it with illness and injury, with star man Mohamed Salah testing positive for Covid-19, while Trent Alexander-Arnold also went down with injury last time out.

Joe Gomez, Fabinho and Thiago all look set to be ruled out, with Virgil van Dijk and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain also long-term casualties.

Leicester start the weekend a point clear of their hosts at the top of the pile, having won their last three league games.

A 1-0 victory at home to Wolves two weeks ago followed on from impressive successes over Leeds and Leicester away from the King Power Stadium.

Rodgers has concerns of his own ahead of his north west comeback, with Wesley Fofana a major doubt in defence after pulling out of international duty.

Caglar Soyuncu is ruled out for certain, as are Wilfred Ndidi, Ricardo Pereira and Daniel Amartey.
