Leicester vs Liverpool: Premier League preview

T

hings are not getting any easier for out-of-form Liverpool as they face a tricky trip to Leicester this Saturday lunchtime.

Jurgen Klopp‘s side were hammered 4-1 by Manchester City at Anfield last Sunday, a result which all-but ended their already slim hopes of retaining the Premier League title.

The Reds currently sit in fourth-place, ten points adrift of leaders Man City having played a game more, though victory would lift them into third, above Leicester on goal-difference.

The Foxes saw their own title aspirations falter as they were held to a goalless draw by Wolves last weekend, but Brendan Rodgers’ men bounced back to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals in midweek with a last-gasp win over Brighton.

Date, kick-off time and venue

Leicester vs Liverpool is scheduled for a 12:30pm kick-off on Saturday, February 13, 2021.

The game will be played behind-closed-doors at the King Power Stadium because of current coronavirus restrictions.

TV channel: Saturday’s match will be televised on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport Ultimate.

Live stream: BT Sport subscribers will be able to watch the match online via the BT Sport website and app.

Jurgen Klopp has no fresh injury concerns but could hand a debut to Ozan Kabak at centre-back, which would allow captain Jordan Henderson to move back into midfield.

Jamie Vardy made his first start since returning from injury in the FA Cup in midweek and Brendan Rodgers must decide whether he is ready to go again, with a Europa League tie against Slavia Praha to come on Thursday.

Standard Sport predicition: 1-1 draw

Jurgen Klopp will be looking for a reaction from his side, who have had the rare benefit of almost a full week off. However, Leicester could prove a tough nut to crack.
