Liverpool’s hopes of defending their Premier League title look to have faded as they slipped to a third consecutive defeat on the weekend.

The Reds’ last three league games have seen them lose to Brighton, Manchester City and now Leicester City.

Jurgen Klopp’s last chance of claiming a piece of silverware this season now seems to be the Champions League, although a tough round of 16 tie lays ahead.

RB Leipzig claimed a seventh win across their last ten league matches to help them climb into 2nd in the Bundesliga.

The Germans also impressed in the Champions League group stages in which they finished above Manchester United to claim second place in a competitive Group H.

RB Leipzig vs Liverpool: Match preview

RB Leipzig have once again reached the Champions League knockout stages under their impressive, young manager, Nagelsmann.

The Germans managed to work their way through a strong group phase which included Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United.

They finished runners-up to the French champions in Group H after beating United on the final matchday.

Last season, Leipzig made it all the way to the semi-finals where they were beaten by PSG.

This season, they once again look a strong outfit currently sat third in the Bundesliga behind Bayern Munich.

Nagelsmann’s side head into the tie in good form having won seven of their last ten matches in the league.

Liverpool defeated in last three

Liverpool’s form is alarming with the Reds having lost all three of their last Premier League matches.

Defeats to Brighton, Man City and now Leicester mean they remain in fourth but are at serious risk of dropping out of the top four.

Four sides below Liverpool are queuing up to move ahead of them with their games in hand.

Defensively they are continuing to struggle without the likes of Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez, conceding 13 in their last six matches in all competitions.

Even goalkeeper Alisson is starting to struggle having made big blunders in both of his last two appearances.

Liverpool cruised into the knockout stages of the Champions League after finishing ahead of Atalanta, Ajax and Midtjylland.

RB Leipzig team news vs Liverpool

The Germans were able to rest several key players for their win over Augsburg on Friday.

The likes of Dayot Upamencano, Marcel Sabitzer and Alexander Sørloth were all on the bench.

The former Crystal Palace striker Sørloth has managed to work his way into the line-up at Leipzig over recent weeks.

Friday’s win also saw the return from injury of Ibrahima Konate who came on as a substitute.

The Frenchman is expected to return to Leipzig’s defence on Tuesday.

However, Nagelsmann will remain without a number of players including Emil Forsberg, Konrad Laimer, Benjamin Henrichs and Dominik Szoboszlai.

Liverpool team news vs RB Leipzig

James Milner is the latest name to be added to the Reds’ growing list of injuries.

The midfielder was forced off in their defeat to Leicester on the weekend with a hamstring injury.

Naby Keita could return from a minor injury but is a doubt at this stage.

Ben Davies, Divock Origi, Caoimhin Kelleher, Fabinho, Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Diogo Jota all remain sidelined.

Klopp could once again stick with Ozan Kabak who made his Liverpool debut on the weekend.

Up until Leicester’s second goal, the defender had been enjoying a solid start to his Liverpool career and could feature again on Tuesday.
