Leicester City will be looking to inflict a third consecutive Premier League defeat on Liverpool when they meet on Saturday at 12:30pm (UK time).
Jurgen Klopp’s men, who occupy the final Champions League spot, are seeing their grip on English football’s biggest prize slowly slip away while the Foxes can finish the weekend in second place if results go their way.

Leicester vs Liverpool build-up, previous line-ups & injury news:
Despite their inconsistent performances, Leicester City find themselves sitting third in the Premier League table. The Foxes have lost just one of their last 10 league outings (a humbling 3-1 defeat by Leeds United) picking up five wins. At home, Rodgers’ men boast a modest record, winning five of their opening 11 fixtures at the King Power Stadium and losing on five occasions. Of those setbacks, just one came against a side in the bottom half (Fulham) and they go into this weekend’s game having lost in each of their last three home Premier League games against Liverpool.
That should encourage a deflated Reds side who suffered a humbling 4-1 loss at home against leaders Manchester City last time out. Klopp’s champions arrive at the King Power off the back of two wins across nine league fixtures. If we go even further they’ve suffered four losses, though just one (at Southampton) came on the road. This poor run leaves Liverpool 10 points behind Pep Guardiola’s Man City having also played a game more.
- Leicester (vs Brighton): Ward; Amartey, Söyüncü, Justin*; Daley-Campbell, Ndidi, Tielemans, Thomas; Ünder, Vardy, Pérez.
- Liverpool (vs Man City): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Henderson, Fabinho*, Robertson; Wijnaldum, Jones, Thiago; Salah, Firmino, Mané.
James Justin is out for the rest of the season after sustaining an ACL injury against Brighton in the FA Cup in midweek. Brendan Rodgers is also set to be without Wesley Fofana, Timothy Castagne, Wes Morgan and Dennis Praet. Fabinho has been ruled with a muscle injury for Liverpool, joining the Reds’ every growing injury list. Joel Matip, Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Naby Keita and Diogo Jota remain out for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

‘The best signing ever’
Someone relishing the visit of a wounded Liverpool side is the Foxes’ premier marksman Jamie Vardy, whose personal record against the Reds is one a lot of strikers would love to have. Across 12 previous Premier League meetings against the Merseyside giants, Vardy has scored seven goals, included a stunning volley in their title-winning season, but the former England international goes into this match looking to end a four-game drought against Klopp’s machine.
However, Liverpool legend and namesake Jamie Carragher believes Vardy’s acquisition from Fleetwood Town in 2012 for a reported £1m, that subsequently led to the Foxes’ unprecedented triumph four years later, makes his signing the greatest value for money in football history.
“That’s one of many reasons why there may never be a better transfer than Vardy’s from Fleetwood Town to Leicester – not just in the Premier League era, but in football history,’ he wrote in his Telegraph column.
“I am always reluctant to definitively declare anyone or anything is ‘the best ever’. It can only be a matter of opinion. But if you were compiling a list of the greatest, most influential signings and judging it on value for money, who eclipses Vardy?
“We can talk about many transfers which changed the course of Premier League history, such as Eric Cantona joining Manchester United, Dennis Bergkamp to Arsenal, Yaya Toure or David Silva moving to Manchester City, or Virgil van Dijk joining Liverpool.
“They were established, international players and household names heading to clubs already building towards titles – the finishing touch to emerging teams. The Vardy story stands alone in that he joined Leicester for £1 million directly from non-league football and defied expectations. Whenever the story of English football is told to future generations, they will talk about Leicester before and after Vardy’s arrival.”
