Liverpool vs Leicester City: Match preview

Will the competition’s most successful side reach another semi-final?

Liverpool have won this trophy eight times, reaching a further four finals, last lifting the trophy in 2012 against Cardiff City.

In Jürgen Klopp’s first season at the club, they reached the final again but were ousted by Manchester City, that one also going to penalties.

Overall though, despite winning four trophies, including the Premier League and Champions League, the Reds’ recent record in domestic cups is very poor.

Since Klopp’s arrival, they’ve won just 18 of 36 domestic cup matches.

Two of those victories came this season, ousting Norwich City and Preston North End, both away, 3-0 and then 2-0 respectively.

Takumi Minamino and Divock Origi scoring in both ties with the Japanese forward bagging a brace at Carrow Road.

So now, they’re just one victory away from a first domestic semi-final since losing to Southampton over two legs in 2017.

In the Premier League, Liverpool’s winning run came to an end on Sunday, drawing 2-2 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Diogo Jota and Andy Robertson were both on target in North London but they couldn’t hold on for a victory in an absolute thriller.

Before this, the Reds had won six successive league outings but are now three points behind Manchester City.

Will Klopp’s men get back to winning ways in this cup tie?

Will Leicester keep their League Cup hopes alive?

As for Leicester City, their fans have enjoyed unparalleled success in recent seasons.

Of course, they won the Premier League title in 2016 and, earlier this year, won the FA Cup for the first time ever before adding the Community Shield.

Now, their fans are dreaming of winning this competition for the fourth time, having previously done so in 1964, 1997 and 2000.

So far in this cup run, Brendan Rodgers’ side have eased past Millwall before a penalty shootout victory over Brighton & Hove Albion.

They led twice against the Seagulls, Harvey Barnes and Ademola Lookman on target, but were pegged back twice so it finished 2-2.

Nevertheless, James Maddison, Barnes, Patson Daka and Ricardo Pereira all converted from 12 yards with Danny Ward making a crucial save too.

So now, the Foxes are through to the quarter-finals of this competition for the fourth time in just five seasons.

In both 2018 and 2019, they were beaten on penalties by Manchester City at this juncture, reaching the semis in 2020 but losing to Aston Villa.

How far will they go this season?

This’ll be the Foxes first fixture for ten days after their last two Premier League games, against Spurs and Everton, were postponed.

When they were last on a pitch, Leicester hammered Newcastle 4-0; Youri Tielemans bagging a brace in their best performance of the campaign.

However, that was just their second win in seven league outings, leaving them ninth in the table.

The Foxes have also crashed out the Europa League in recent weeks, losing 3-2 to Napoli at Stadio Diego Armando Maradona earlier this month.

So, they’ll now drop into the UEFA Europa Conference League and face Danish Cup winners Randers in February.

Overall, this season has been underwhelming to this point but a first victory at Anfield since 2000 would certainly lift the mood.

Will Leicester cause a bit of an upset and get through this tie?

Given the current packed schedule of games, Jürgen Klopp would surely love to rotate heavily for this tie.

However, given that many members of his squad are currently self-isolating, he has very limited options.

In goal, Alisson has never played in this competition and that isn’t likely to change here with Caoimhín Kelleher deputising for this one.

At the back, it’s likely to be all change with Kostas Tsimikas and Neco Williams coming in at full-back.

In the middle, Virgil van Dijk is isolating and, therefore, Ibrahima Konaté and Joël Matip will both be rested.

So, Joe Gomez, who’s dropped down to fourth choice, is likely to start alongside 18 year old Jarell Quansah who was on the bench on Sunday.

Nat Phillips is out with a cheekbone fracture.

Midfield is where Liverpool are incredibly short with Fabinho, Thiago and Curtis Jones all having tested positive and Jordan Henderson feeling unwell.

So, James Milner and Tyler Morton, who both started at Tottenham on Sunday, are likely to keep their places.

Milner made his Premier League debut for Leeds on 10 November 2002, three weeks before Morton was born.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain could come into the midfield, in place of Naby Keïta.

In attack, it would be a major surprise if any of Sadio Mané, Mohamed Salah or Diogo Jota featured in this tie.

Takumi Minamino and Divock Origi, who’ve scored all five of Liverpool’s goals in this run so far, will come in.

The front three could be completed by Kaide Gordon who made his debut in the third round and was a substitute at the weekend.

Will this mix-and-match side get through?

As for Leicester City, having not played for a week and a half, expect a stronger XI from them.

In goal though, club captain Kasper Schmeichel isn’t likely to be included.

Danny Ward will come in; he may be number one for Wales but nine of his 16 appearances for Leicester gave come in the Carabao Cup.

In defence, Luke Thomas could keep his place at left-back, ahead of Ryan Bertrand who struggled to establish himself since leaving Southampton.

Ricardo Pereira is only just back after injury so Timothy Castagne is likely to retain his place at right-back.

In midfield, Boubakary Soumaré could return to form a strong trio alongside Wilfred Ndidi and Youri Tielemans.

This would see Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, who’s started the last three games, miss out.

James Maddison would therefore be pushed into a wider role with Harvey Barnes on the other flank.

Patson Daka could lead the line with Jamie Vardy’s minutes being carefully managed this season.

Kelechi Ịheanachọ meanwhile is out of favour just now; his last appearance that was longer than five minutes was on 20 November.

Will Leicester knock out the eight-time winners?
