Second in the standings twelve points behind Manchester City, Liverpool hosts Leicester City on Thursday evening from 8:45 pm at Anfield as part of the 24th day of the Premier League.
The context of Liverpool-Leicester City
Relegated to twelve lengths from Manchester City, winner Wednesday of Brentford (2-0), Liverpool must win so as not to find themselves a little further away from the race for the title of champion. The Reds, who are two games behind the Citizens, are aiming for a third straight league win after Brentford (3-0) and Crystal Palace (3-1). Falling four days ago from Cardiff City in the FA Cup (3-1) with goals from Diogo Jota, Takumi Minamino and Harvey Elliott, Jürgen Klopp’s players challenge Foxes twelfth with 26 points. Without success in all competitions in the last three games, the formation coached by Brendan Rodgers remains on an elimination in the FA Cup against Nottingham Forest (1-4), resident of the Championship. Jamie Vardy’s teammates have been looking for a first success for more than a month.
