Leicester vs. Liverpool Preview: Potential Lineups

Liverpool will try to maintain its pursuit of a top-four finish.

The team of Jurgen Klopp is currently ranked fifth in the league, and they will need some good fortune to qualify for the Champions League the following year.

The Reds are coming into this game with a six-match winning streak, and they will be optimistic that streak will continue here. However, Leicester is currently ranked 19th in the league and will be fighting tooth and nail to stay in the Premier League.

Leicester will be attempting to turn things around against Liverpool after losing five of their last six league games.

Liverpool won 2-1 at home the last time these two teams played in a league match, and they will be hoping for a similar outcome this time.

Leicester City

James Justin, Jannik Vestergaard, and Kelechi Iheanacho will be sidelined for the home team due to injuries.

Daniel Iversen will start in goal as Dean Smith plans to field his team in a 4-2-3-1 formation.

The full-backs will be Timothy Castagne and Victor Kristiansen, and their goals will be to defend the central defenders and create opportunities for counterattacks.

Alongside Caglar Soyuncu, Wout Faes will begin the game in the center of defense.

In the midfield pivot, Wilfried Ndidi will start alongside Youri Tielemans. Tielemans will try to control the game’s tempo, while Ndidi will try to disrupt the opposition’s play.

Tete and Harvey Barnes will start in the wide areas and try to speed up the attack. The tenth player will be James Maddison.

With Jamie Vardy leading the line for the hosts, the 26-year-old will try to add goals and creativity in the final third.

Probable Lineup (4-2-3-1): Iversen; Castagne, Faes, Soyuncu, Kristiansen; Ndidi, Tielemans; Tete, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy


Calvin Ramsay, Stefan Bajcetic, Thiago Alcantara, and Naby Keita will not be available for Liverpool in this match.

Alisson Becker will likely start in goal for Jurgen Klopp’s team in a 4-3-3 formation.

Starting as full-backs, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andrew Robertson will try to improve the team’s offensive and defensive coverage.

At the core of the defense, Virgil van Dijk will team up with Ibrahima Konate.

Along with club captain Jordan Henderson and Curtis Jones in the midfield, Fabinho will start as the defensive midfielder. Henderson will attempt to provide defensive cover, while Jones will try to add originality to the side.

Cody Gakpo will be the line leader while Mohamed Salah and Luis Diaz will be used as wide forwards. Given his ability to drop deep into the midfield and connect with his teammates, the Dutchman will probably start in this situation instead of Darwin Nunez and Diogo Jota. In order to defeat Leicester City away from home, Liverpool will need his ability to keep the ball.

Probable Lineup (4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Henderson, Fabinho, Jones; Salah, Gakpo, Diaz
