What is the team news?
Mohamed Salah will miss the match after the striker contracted Covid-19 during the international break. Joe Gomez (knee) and Jordan Henderson (thigh) picked up injuries while on England duty, the former seemingly out for the season after surgery on a ruptured knee tendon.
Trent Alexander-Arnold (calf) will not face Leicester while manager Jürgen Klopp is waiting to see whether Fabinho is fit enough having rejoined training this week after missing three matches with a hamstring problem.
There are further doubts over fellow defenders Rhys Williams and Neco Williams, while midfielder Thiago Alcantara has still not recovered from a knee injury sustained over a month ago.
Liverpool provisional squad: Alisson, Fabinho, Matip, Phillips, Robertson, Wijnaldum, Milner, Keïta, Jota, Firmino, Mané, Adrian, N Williams, R Williams, Tsimikas, Jones, Shakiri, Origi, Minamino.
Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers welcomes back Timothy Castagne following a hamstring injury that has sidelined the Belgian full-back for the club’s last four games.
Wesley Fofana has shrugged off a small knee problem he suffered during the international break.
Caglar Soyuncu and Wilfred Ndidi remain on the sidelines with groin injuries and although Ricardo Pereira is back in training after a knee issue, he also misses the trip to Anfield.
Leicester City provisional squad: Schmeichel, Ward, Jakupovic, Justin, Fuchs, Castagne, Morgan, Evans, Thomas, Fofana, Choudhury, Tielemans, Mendy, Praet, Albrighton, Gray, Maddison, Barnes, Under, Perez, Vardy, Iheanacho, Slimani.

What’s our prediction?
With Liverpool’s back four decimated through injury, returning manager Brendan Rodgers may never get a better chance to get one over on the club that sacked him five years ago last month. However, should Klopp’s makeshift defence cope then their expected forward line of Sadio Mané, Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota have the ability to punish any lapses in concentration from Leicester City. The result? Liverpool 2 Leicester 2.
