Confirmed: Leicester and Liverpool line-ups

Leicester V Cardiff

Here is how Leicester City and Liverpool will line up this evening:

Leicester City welcome Liverpool to the King Power Stadium this evening with the hosts looking to consolidate and potentially strengthen their place at the top of the Premier League.

The Foxes are currently three points clear of nearest challengers Manchester City and Arsenal, but they will know that any slip up could be pounced on over the next few months.

Liverpool are down in seventh position with 34 points from 23 matches but they could climb up to fifth – above Manchester United and West Ham United – depending on other results so Jurgen Klopp will know the importance of this clash.

Leicester have lost just one of their last 16 league matches and only three of their last 32 so they have well and truly proved the doubters wrong.

Klopp’s Liverpool side is showing signs of resurgence but it will take an almighty effort to overcome Leicester in their own backyard, so a score draw could be the most likely outcome.
