An electric atmosphere will be expected tomorrow as Liverpool face Leicester City at Anfield in what will be Liverpool’s first home game since before the break for the World Cup.
Jurgen Klopp will hope his team can build momentum with a second straight win after Liverpool’s Boxing Day victory over Aston Villa. Brendan Rodgers’s side will be looking to bounce back after a harrowing 3-0 home defeat to Newcastle.
The Leicester boss confirmed in his pre-match conference that James Maddison and Dennis Praet are ruled out of the fixture through injury.
Jurgen Klopp is expected to bring Ibrahima Konate back into the squad after he confirmed the defender’s return to training this week. Roberto Firmino, James Milner and Curtis Jones are all still ruled out through injury but are close to returning to training. Cody Gakpo isn’t available for selection yet. The Dutchman will also probably miss the Brentford fixture but Klopp hopes to include him in the squad for the Wolves game on January 7th.
Liverpool are currently 6th in the Premier League table and are 5 points off of the Top 4. Leicester are in 13th, only 4 points out of the relegation zone. Liverpool were victorious the last fixture between the two sides with a 2-0 home win last February.
