Liverpool play Leicester City on Sunday at Anfield in a big Premier League showdown. The Foxes, just like early in the 2019-20 season, are title challengers and getting points at Anfield will prove they are the real deal.
Jurgen Klopp has injuries to key players as Joe Gomez joined the long-term injury list during the November international break. Joel Matip is back and Fabinho and Thiago will be assessed on the day. However, Jordan Henderson and Trent Alexander-Arnold are already ruled out.
Making matters worse is Mohamed Salah is still in Egypt after testing positive for COVID-19.
With Liverpool and Leicester City playing tomorrow in a game that will impact the title race, we ask the question: what is Liverpool’s recent record against Leicester City?
Unbeaten in six
Liverpool are unbeaten in six games versus Leicester City in the Premier League. Five of those games ended in wins for Liverpool. Leicester City’s last win versus Liverpool came in the 2017-18 Carabao Cup. The Foxes won 2-0.
Last season, Liverpool won 2-1 at home having dominated most of the match versus Leicester City. Sadio Mane’s goal started things off and James Milner’s second-half stoppage-time penalty gave the Reds the win.
The reverse fixture at the King Power Stadium finished 4-0 as the Reds thrashed Leicester City, ending the Foxes’ fight for the league title. The loss to Liverpool was the catalyst to Leicester City’s fall from the top four in the second half of the season.
