Liverpool will have a great chance to continue their superb home form when they play host to Leicester City.
The Reds have been impeccable in their own backyard so far in the season winning ten and drawing one of eleven home outings in the Premier League. They are four points clear off reigning champions Manchester City.
The Reds are out of both domestic cups and they clearly have their sights on much-wanted Premier League trophy. Jurgen Klopp’s side will thus not lack the motivation factor here against the Foxes. Leicester City are nowhere near their best form coming into this one.
They lost three on the bounce across competitions, a thread which started with an embarrassing 2-1 loss to League Two outfit Newport County in the third round of the FA Cup. They then fell 1-2 at home to Southampton before losing a seven-goal thriller to Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux (4-3).
Liverpool defender Joe Gomez has suffered a setback in his recovery from a leg fracture and won’t be available for a few more weeks. Leicester City’s Harry Maguire is a doubt for Wednesday’s trip to Liverpool and Leicester will be desperate to have their best center-back available.
The Reds won all of past four head to head affairs with the Foxes.
Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane were all on the scoreline in a 4-3 victory over Crystal Palace in the previous round for Liverpool.
The Egyptian star thus took his league tally to 16 and is now lone at the top of competition’s goal-scoring charts in spite of a slower kick-off to the campaign. Mohamed Salah should have plenty of room to deliver in the final third past the struggling defensive line of Leicester City.
