Leicester vs Liverpool predicted line-ups: Team news ahead of Amazon Prime Premier League fixture

Leicester are looking to end Liverpool‘s undefeated streak when the top-two sides in the Premier League meet on Boxing Day.

Jurgen Klopp’s runaway leaders are already 10 points clear at the top of the table and come into the fixture riding a wave of momentum after their Club World Cup success.

Liverpool have won all but one of their 17 league matches this season, while Leicester’s title pursuit was dented by defeat against Manchester City last weekend.

Brendan Rodgers’ side are still 11 points clear of fifth-placed Sheffield United, though, and will be confident of securing a Champions League spot next season.
