Liverpool vs Leicester: Premier League preview

Most of Jurgen Klopp’s defence is sidelined, along with understudy Rhys Williams, ahead of facing one of the league’s best striker’s in Jamie Vardy.

Brendan Rodgers will know his team are capable of getting one over on his former employers, and make a title statement in the process.

Liverpool vs Leicester is scheduled for a 7:15pm GMT kick-off on Sunday, November 22, 2020.

The match will be held behind closed doors at Anfield.

TV channel: The match will be televised on Sky Sports Main Event and Premier League, with coverage from 7pm.

Live stream: Sky Sports subscribers will be able to watch the match online via Sky Go and the app.

Mohamed Salah will miss out due to contracting coronavirus, in the latest blow to Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp is missing Virgil van Dijk, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Thiago and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. There are also strong doubts over Fabinho, Jordan Henderson and youngster Rhys Williams

Leicester have their own troubles with Caglar Soyuncu still sidelined, and Ricardo Pereira and Wilfred Ndidi doubtful.

Left-back Timothy Castagne could return.

Prediction: Liverpool 1-1 Leicester City

You may have heard, but Liverpool are suffering one almighty injury crisis. Their patchwork defence is likely to have Jamie Vardy licking his lips, but there’s still the champions’ firepower up front. I expect a cagey game, ending all square.
