Liverpool Vs Leicester City: Confirmed Lineup Out

Liverpool will play hosts to Leicester City at Anfield, with top spot on the table up for grabs.

While the Reds have only lost one game so far – the embarrassing 7-1 trouncing at the hands of Aston Villa – they have been running games too close and always look ripe for the taking defensively even before Virgil van Dijk was sidelined.

Leicester, on the other hand, have appeared to be keen on making amends after narrowly missing out on a top four finish last season.

While the Foxes have lost twice already, they have been making winning a habit, either by garnering all three points in scrappy manner or by blowing teams away.

That has enabled Brendan Rodgers & co. to leap to the top of the table, leading Liverpool by a point.

The corresponding fixture last season saw Liverpool beating Leicester 2-1, with Sadio Mane putting the Reds ahead in the first half before James Maddison scored an 80th-minute equaliser, only for James Milner to win the game with a late penalty.

Liverpool XI (4-3-3): Alisson, Jones, Matip, Fabinho, Robertson, Milner, Wijnaldum, Keita, Jota, Firmino, Mane

Leicester City XI (3-4-2-1): Schmeichel, Fofana, Evans, Fuchs, Albrighton, Mendy, Tielemans, Justin, Barnes, Maddison, Vardy
