Facing relegation in a season where fans expected to be competing for European positions, Leicester City are in real trouble. The arrival of a Liverpool side they have enjoyed some good results against in recent times, though, could be just what they need. Liverpool have failed to rise to the occasion against relegation threatened teams all year, and know they need to win to keep up the UEFA Champions League push.

The Foxes will be without a few key players, with James Justin and Kelechi Iheanacho unlikely to play. Ryan Bertrand could come back into contention, having missed the entirety of the season so far. Outside of that, only Jannik Vestergaard is missing. The Foxes have finally seen some clear-up on the injury front, and not before time.
Liverpool are missing the usual suspects of Thiago, Nab Keita, and Roberto Firmino. Young duo Calvin Ramsey and Stefan Bajcetic look certain to miss out, too. The Reds are expected to have much the same team that won out last time fit, though, so they should not have too many selection issues when it comes to retaining the consistency that has seen them somehow spring back into top four contention.
Liverpool to win, but it will be an exciting game. Leicester have had little issue scoring goals, but it is the defensive side of the goal where they lack so badly. Expect plenty of goals, especially as Liverpool have a habit of being quite porous themselves.
Score Prediction: 2-3
