Liverpool survived a scare to earn all three points in the Champions League vs Salzburg and next up, the Reds will face Leicester City at Anfield in the Premier League.
The Foxes are in red hot form at the moment. In the last three games in all competitions, they have scored 11 times and conceded just one goal. Like Liverpool, Rodgers’ team has also conceded just 5 goals in the league so far.
Who will come out on top tomorrow?
In the absence of Matip, Liverpool’s back-line proved to be fragile in the midweek CL contest and the former Schalke defender might miss the game vs the 2015-16 champions as well (The Daily Express).
Gomez was poor vs Salzburg and therefore, we can expect Lovren to return to the starting XI to partner Van Dijk in the central defense.
Liverpool gave away the ball cheaply on numerous occasions and Henderson and Wijnaldum seemed very tired in the midfield. We have got a lot of depth in the center of the park, hence, the duo should be rested and the likes of Milner and Keita should return.
Alisson is still a doubt, therefore, Adrian would likely retain his place in the goal. Here is Liverpool’s strongest possible 4-3-3 vs Leicester:
