Leicester City only lost three matches during the 2015/16 season, with the Foxes losing twice against Arsenal and also at Anfield on Boxing Day.

They return there on Saturday 10 September, with Claudio Ranieri’s side having started their title defence with four points from their opening three matches and it’s clear that N’Golo Kante is a big miss for City.

Nevertheless, the champions might be regarded by many as a big price for victory in this clash considering they got off the mark with a win against Swansea, while Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy will look to expose a Liverpool defence who have conceded six goals in three games.

Jurgen Klopp will look for home comforts after a win, draw and defeat from their opening three top flight games, with Sadio Mane looking like the stand-out attacking player and there are plenty of other players who can make an impact.

Daniel Sturridge continues to battle to get into the first team, with the manager preferring to utilise Roberto Firmino in the false nine position, while Philippe Coutinho will look to pull the strings in a deeper position.

Perhaps Joel Matip will be the answer in central defence for Liverpool, with Dejan Lovren looking for a partner in crime and it’s also clear that Emre Can can provide the sort of defensive cover that will enable Gigi Wijnaldum to support his team-mates.

We suspect that Liverpool could be fast off the blocks in this game and Leicester might feel the sting of a lively side who have done pretty well to accrue four points in their opening three games considering the fixtures.

A 5-0 demolition job at Burton illustrated that there is bags of firepower within the ranks at Anfield, with Leicester looking a pale imitation of the side who had all the momentum last term, while Ranieri needs to consider the forthcoming Champions League campaign.
