Liverpool's Kolo Toure wary of Leicester City's threat

Liverpool go in search of back to back wins when they face the Premier League's bottom side.

Liverpool defender Kolo Toure is wary of the threat that Leicester City will possess, and suggests the Reds are taking nothing for granted when the visit the Premier League's bottom club at the King Power Stadium this evening. 

The Foxes have been on a poor run lately but they have shown they are capable of getting good results on their own patch, having held Arsenal to a draw earlier on in the campaign, as well as memorably coming from behind to beat Manchester United 5-3.

Liverpool themselves have been trying to put a difficult sequence of results behind them. After losing four consecutive games in all competitions, the Reds salvaged a 2-2 draw in Ludogorets then followed it up with a vital Premier League win against Stoke City on Saturday.

The Reds go in search of back-to-back wins for only the second time this season against Leicester. 

Toure told the Liverpool website: "Sometimes when a team is in that situation, they can be more dangerous. We are used to it and at the moment, as Liverpool Football Club we are not happy and that's why it's going to be a great game."

It is unclear whether Toure will keep his place in the side this evening having played the past two games - filling in for the out of form Dejan Lovren as some changes are expected during this busy schedule.

A win for the visitors could move them into the top half whilst Leicester could move out of the relegation zone if they manage to get a win against the Reds.

Liverpool will be expectant of a result in order to generate some momentum, but they must show some defensive capabilities like they did on Saturday to achieve that, as they face a Leicester side that carries a pretty good goal threat despite their league position. One only needs to look at the series of chances they created on Saturday against Queens Park Rangers.
