20:45 Leicester – Liverpool

Team News


  • Nigel Pearson is again without Dean Hammond and Matthew Upson.
  • The Foxes were unfortunate not to secure at least a point at QPR at the weekend.
  • Pearson may be tempted to name the same starting XI for the welcome of Liverpool.


  • Rickie Lambert is expected to keep his starting spot with Daniel Sturridge and Mario Balotelli both sidelined.
  • Brendan Rodgers will be without Jon Flanagan, Mamadou Sakho and Suso due to injury.
  • Kolo Toure is expected to keep his place in the starting XI after an impressive showing against Stoke.
  • Steven Gerrard and Adam Lallana may also come into the side for Joe Allen and Lucas Leiva.
  • Leicester's abysmal run of form has seen them sink to the foot of the Premier League. The Foxes have picked up only 1 point from a possible 18 of late and need to return to winning ways as soon as possible.
  • Liverpool's weekend win over Stoke was their first in 5 in England's top tier. Victory here will help keep their top 4 hopes alive after a disappointing run that saw them drop into the bottom half of the table.
  • While Leicester are desperate for 3 points, Liverpool are good enough to secure the share of the spoils in this one.
