Leicester vs Liverpool – Premier League: TV channel, team news, lineups & prediction

Two teams with drastically different ambitions will collide when Leicester host Liverpool on Monday evening.

After a tricky season, Liverpool have made a late push for the top four but cannot afford any further slip-ups if they are to catch Newcastle and Manchester United ahead of them.

At the other end of the table, Leicester are fighting for their lives. Dean Smith’s side sit 19th, two points adrift of safety and seeking a much-needed response to the enthralling 5-3 defeat to Fulham last time out.

Here’s all you need to know about this one.

Leicester team news

There are no fresh fitness issues for Leicester, who remain without Ryan Bertrand, James Justin, Jannik Vestergaard and Kelechi Iheanacho, the latter of whom should be back in contention after this game.

Instead, Smith may opt for some personnel changes in response to the Fulham defeat. Jonny Evans and Ricardo Pereira were back on the bench but could get significant minutes here.

(4-2-3-1): Iversen; Pereira, Faes, Soyuncu, Castagne; Ndidi, Dewsbury-Hall; Tete, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy

Liverpool team news

Roberto Firmino and Naby Keita are not yet ready to return from injuries, leaving them sidelined alongside Stefan Bajcetic, Calvin Ramsay and Thiago.

Midfielder Jordan Henderson suffered a knock before the last game and was only fit enough for a place on the bench, but he can be expected to return to the starting lineup here.

(4-3-3): Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Jones, Henderson; Salah, Gakpo, Diaz

Leicester’s relegation fears have nothing to do with their ability to score goals. The Foxes have bagged 49 times this season, more than any other side in the bottom half and even one more than eighth-placed Aston Villa.

A shaky Liverpool backline could easily encounter some problems here, but they’ll likely make up for it with a rampant attacking performance that should be far too much for Leicester to handle.

Leicester’s future cannot be decided here, but if they fail to pick up any points, the threat of relegation will grow even stronger.

Prediction: Leicester 1-3 Liverpool
