Leicester City versus Liverpool
Tuesday 2:45 PM ET King Power Stadium
Fresh off a 1-1 draw against Huddersfield, the Foxes now have their first of two matches against Liverpool. This will be Liverpool’s first match in the cup and both sides are poised to make wholesale changes to rotate their squads.
How to Watch
ESPN 3 will be the host for this match.
Jurgen Klopp already announced three players will make their start tomorrow at the King Power. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Danny Ward, and Marko Grujic. Liverpool missed the services of Sadio Mane in their 1-1 draw with Burnley and will be without him for the next two games against Leicester.
Leicester had great success last time out against Sheffield United, winning 4-1 thanks to a strong second half. Craig Shakespeare is also looking to rotate the squad, bringing up some youngsters from the U-23 squad. Hamza Choudhury and Josh Knight will be looking to make an impact with the senior squad against a top side. Robert Huth still isn’t fully fit and won’t play a part in this match.
Here are the predicted starting lineups.
Liverpool have cooled off from their great start, and Leicester need a strong performance to kick-start their season. I think Leicester wins 3-2 with the winner coming in the last five minutes.
