The Foxes have been this season’s surprise package and remain Liverpool’s closest title rival despite losing to champions Manchester City last time out.

Leicester team news
The Foxes will be without Harvey Barnes for Thursday’s clash, with the Englishman out with an ankle injury.
Leicester boss Rodgers said in his press conference ahead of the game: “Barnes has been getting treatment over the last couple of days. Hopefully he’ll be back in training tomorrow. It’s his ankle, but it’s not as bad as first thought.”
Matthew James is also out of action.
Liverpool team news
The Reds have six players currently occupying spots in the medical room, with Fabinho, Joel Matip, Dejan Lovren and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all in recovery.
Matip is the only casualty with a predicted return date, but even that is in 2020.
On Tuesday, Klopp spoke to the press where he confirmed Oxlade-Chamberlain, who was injured in Doha, could be out for up to six weeks.
“The ankle is what we probably expected,” said Klopp.
“One of the ligaments on the outside is damaged and we have to see how quickly we can fix that. It can take a while or it can be quicker, we will see.”
Leicester – 12/5
Draw – 13/5
Liverpool – 11/10
