Liverpool vs Leicester team news, prediction, kick-off time, h2h results today
Liverpool are currently 12 points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City as they prepare to face Leicester City tonight.
City extended their advantage with a win against Brentford on Wednesday night, but Jurgen Klopp’s side still have two games in hand and aren’t facing a very strong opponent.
Brendan Rodgers, who isn’t known for his ability to turn things around, ripped into his team after their FA Cup thrashing at the hands of Nottingham Forest over the weekend and can’t seem to find a solution to their defensive problems.
With goals leaking all over the place, the prospect of facing a free-scoring Liverpool must be terrifying.
The Premier League game is scheduled for a 7.45 pm GMT kick-off today at Anfield, Thursday 10 February 2022.
