Leicester City vs Liverpool match preview
Can Leicester City keep their hopes of survival alive, or will Liverpool remain in the Champions League hunt?
This is a third successive Monday fixture for Leicester but, this time, they desperately need an improved performance.
A fortnight ago, the Foxes could only manage a 2-2 draw with fellow strugglers Everton at home.
Then, last week, Dean Smith’s side were smashed by Fulham, going 4-0 down at Craven Cottage, before ultimately losing 5-3.
Harvey Barnes bagged a brace, Jamie Vardy missed a penalty and James Maddison did convert from 12 yards, but the game was far more one-sided than the final score would suggest.
So, having accumulated just six points from the last 39 available, Leicester remain 19th, one point below Leeds, two adrift Everton and safety and now four behind local rivals Nottingham Forest.
The Foxes face Newcastle at St James’ Park next Monday and then West Ham on the final day, so defeat here could be pretty much terminal.
Liverpool too have endured a disappointing campaign, with the Reds set for their lowest finish since 2016, the season Leicester were crowned champions of course.
Jürgen Klopp’s side kick off in fifth, four points below both Newcastle and Manchester United, with only three games remaining.
The Reds have actually won six consecutive games, with Mohammed Salah downing Brentford at Anfield most-recently, but this is likely to be too little to late.
After this, Liverpool face Aston Villa (H) and Southampton (A) and, if their winning streak continues, they’ll end the campaign with 71 points.
Thus, assuming that is the case, both Man United and Newcastle need just six points from their last three games to wrap up top four spots, meaning what Liverpool do is likely to prove futile.
Nevertheless, given that Leicester haven’t kept a clean sheet since 12 November, a run of 20 games, an emphatic Liverpool away win seems likely at the King Power.
Leicester City team news
Following that drubbing at Fulham a week ago, Dean Smith is set to ring the changes.
It was a week of contrasts for goalkeeper Daniel Iverson, who was man of the match in the draw with Everton, before shipping five a week later.
Jonny Evans was back on the bench at Craven Cottage, so could feature for the first time since 8 October due to a calf injury.
Çağlar Söyüncü has started all five matches under Dean Smith, despite seeing only 259 minutes of action before his arrival.
At the other end of the pitch, with Kelechi Ịheanachọ injured, Jamie Vardy will continue to lead the line, hoping to add to his ten career goals against Liverpool.
Predicted XI (4-5-1): Iversen; Castagne, Faes, Söyüncü, Kristiansen; Ndidi, Soumaré, Tielemans, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy.
Liverpool team news
Given that Thiago and Stefan Bajčetić are out injured, Curtis Jones is enjoying an extended run in midfield.
Cody Gakpo, usually a forward, completed the midfield trio against Brentford, but captain Jordan Henderson is likely to return here.
Diogo Jota and Darwin Núñez formed part of the forward line for that game, although Luis Díaz will be hoping to start this time.
Núñez scored on his Liverpool debut at the King Power in July’s Community Shield, but has only netted 14 times in 41 appearances subsequently.
Predicted XI (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, van Dijk, Konaté, Robertson; Fabinho, Henderson, Jones; Salah, Gakpo, Luis Díaz.
