Liverpool saw their six-game league winning streak end last time in a controversial 2-2 draw at Tottenham, but the title race is still on for the Reds.

After an unexpected layoff on Boxing Day thanks to a postponement of COVID-19, Liverpool are now rested and revived ahead of a tough test drive at King Power Stadium. The Reds have almost a full squad of players available for selection and could see Virgil van Dijk return after his fight with COVID-19.

Leicester City cannot say the same, as the Foxes have lost a number of key players, and after an uphill 6-3 heavyweight battle against Manchester City just 48 hours ago, Leicester City will face an uphill battle. against another challenger for the title. This is a situation that prompted manager Brendan Rodgers to try Premier League schedule officials in preparation for the game.

Liverpool vs Leicester City rosters

If you are a Leicester City fan, buckle up. The Foxes saw right-back Ricardo Pereira fracture his leg in the EFL Cup (Carabao Cup) loss to Liverpool, and he will be missing a lot of time. Center-back Caglar Soyuncu also left that game with a hamstring injury and is out for the foreseeable future. Jonny Evans is not available for party encounters with a thigh issue, and Harvey Barnes, Ryan Bertrand and Wesley Fofana will also be out.

Jamie Vardy and Wilfried Ndidi were both on the bench for the Boxing Day loss to Manchester City, but Rodgers admitted they were both injured and were only included as emergency options due to a lack depth. This is the fight Leicester City are currently facing.

Leicester City’s projected starting eleven (4-2-3-1): Schmeichel (GK) – Thomas, Vestergaard, Amartey, Albrighton – Tielemans, Soumare – Lookman, Maddison, Perez – Iheanacho.

Leicester City Submarines (9): (The starting compositions published one hour before the kickoff)

As the bad news from Leicester accumulates, things are looking up for Liverpool. The club announced that Van Dijk has cleared the COVID-19 protocol and is ready to return, as are Thiago, Fabinho and Curtis Jones.

The only player unavailable at the moment is left-back Andy Robertson who is suspended due to the red card received against Tottenham, while Harvey Elliott’s serious ankle injury prevents him from playing until at least January. Otherwise, the team is as fit as it gets at this time of year.

Liverpool’s projected starting eleven (4-3-3): Allison (GK) – Tsimikas, Van Dijk, Matip, Alexander-Arnold – Keita, Fabinho, Milner – Mane, Jota, Salah.

Still, both teams are adept at finding the back of the net, and instead of backing a well-managed Leicester City side to blow themselves up, back down despite the somewhat unsavory odds. It could still be a blowout, but the Foxes will fight like they did in the Carabao Cup against Liverpool (3-3) and then against Man City in the 6-3 Boxing Day thriller.
