Leicester City have kicked off the year in great form, winning seven and losing just one of the ten games so far. However, after limping past Brighton with a last minute winner, the Foxes face their biggest challenge in some time against 4th place Liverpool.
Liverpool will be desperate to get their Premier League season back on track when they travel to the King Power Stadium to take on Leicester on Saturday.
The Reds’ title bid is all but over after last weekend’s 4-1 home defeat against Manchester Ctiy, leaving them to focus on securing a place in the top four.
