Leicester City (1-1-3) versus Liverpool (2-2-1)
Saturday 12:30 PM ET King Power Stadium
Leicester spoiled Liverpool’s cup party on Tuesday with a thrilling 2-0 victory. The Foxes survived an offensive onslaught in the first half to steal a win thanks to Shinji Okazaki’s second half strike. Islam Slimani also showed up with a lightning bolt to the top shelf with his weaker foot.
How to Watch
This match will be live across the country on NBC. You can also watch this match on any device through the NBC Sports app.
Expect Liverpool to be back at full strength on Saturday. They will be without the services of Sadio Mane once more, but expect Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah, and company to be back in action.
Liverpool won’t be the only squad at full strength. Expect the Foxes to put their top 11 out on the pitch Saturday in the hunt for their second victory of the season.
Leicester have had a tough start to the season and staying above the relegation zone, given the run of games they’ve had, is still a positive. Liverpool will be a tough match no doubt about it, but having just beaten them should give us the confidence to go out there and get all three points under the lights at the KP.
Here are the predicted starting elevens.
The selected official for this match is Anthony Taylor.
If Leicester score first, this could turn out to be one of the more historic goal lines in Leicester history. Liverpool are susceptible on the counter and have been very weak all season after allowing the first goal. Should Leicester start this match the way they did Tuesday, it could be a dark day for the Foxes. Regardless, I just hope it ends in three points for the boys in blue.
