The Liverpool vs Leicester City live stream is one of two Premier League games taking place on Thursday — and it's an important one for both sides.
Foxes manager Brendan Rogers will return once again to Anfield, where he was manager from June 2012 until October 2015. He does so under some pressure and with his Leicester City side in poor form. They were dumped unceremoniously out of the FA Cup last weekend by East Midlands rivals Nottingham Forest, capitulating in shocking fashion to a 4-1 defeat at the City Ground. Indeed, they have only won two of their last six matches in all competitions, with their last league victory actually coming against Liverpool on December 28.
Liverpool, on the other hand, are in imperious form, unbeaten in six games, a run that includes just one draw — the 0-0 against Arsenal in the League Cup Semi-Final first leg. They saw off Cardiff City 3-1 in the FA Cup, and beat Crystal Palace by the same score in their last Premier League match.
The Reds have done all this without star names Mo Salah and Sadio Mané, who faced each other in Sunday’s African Cup of Nations final. It was Mané and his Senegal side who ended up victorious, with the Liverpool forward striking the winning penalty in the shootout. Assigned to take Egypt's fifth kick, Salah didn’t even have the chance to respond after earlier failures by his teammates. He has urged manager Jurgen Klopp to consider him for the Liverpool vs Leicester City live stream, reportedly telling his boss “I’m ready” and Klopp has included him among the substitutes. Mané, meanwhile, will not feature.
Leicester City’s Nampalys Papy Mendy was also part of that victorious Senegal side. The midfielder has only had one League Cup appearance for his club side, but is now in their Premier League squad. Defender Ryan Betrand is likely to miss the rest of the season, having undergone knee surgery, but at least James Justin and Wesley Fofana have recovered from long-standing injuries.
Liverpool enter this round of Premier League fixtures in second place, albeit 9pts behind the apparent champions-elect Manchester City. However, they will be keen to keep ahead of Chelsea, who are just one point behind, although they have played a game more.
Here's how they line up:
Liverpool: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Thiago, Jones, Diaz, Firmino, Jota.
Leicester City: Schmeichel, Justin, Amartey, Ndidi, Thomas, Albrighton, Soumare, Lookman, Maddison, Dewsbury-Hall, Daka.
