Liverpool FC Starting XI Prediction vs Leicester City FC

Share

Liverpool continue their quest to end their title drought when they host Leicester City on Wednesday night. Their closest competitor in the table, Manchester City, visit Newcastle United tomorrow night, so the Reds will be well aware of that result before this match kicks off. With the gap between the two sides just four points, neither side can afford to be settling for draws instead of wins.

The Merseysiders currently have an injury crisis in defense, and it will be interesting to see how manager Jurgen Klopp makes his selections for his first team. He will likely have to keep on slotting midfielders in the back line, as a stop gap measure.

  1. Instead of Keita, we should include Camacho on the left. Robertson must not go too far up the pitch. Because Foxes counterattack may be vicious. Vardy like spaces. We saw against Wolves for the FA cup how the first goal came in large spaces. Fabinho must be the CB.

  2. Charles Zammit says:

    Liverpool finished without a right fullback for this game because one is justly injured but the other was hastily transfered in my opinion and the make shift other one is not qualified to play due to being disqualified.
