Liverpool will be looking to get nothing less than a win when they go up against Leicester City in the third round of the League Cup this Tuesday. The Reds’ form in the present scenario has been far from good with an embarrassing loss to Manchester City last week and a disappointing draw against Burnley in their fifth match of the Premier League campaign, making  the League Cup all more important for the Merseyside club in order to regain some of the lost confidence, which was oozing out when they bludgeoned arch-rivals Arsenal not too long ago.

Leicester City will also be looking to get a much important win under their belt so that they can make it a good start to their campaign in the League Cup this season. They, alike their opponents Liverpool, are not having a good season in the Premier League, incurring only a single point from their fifth match of the season against Huddersfield Town. The Foxes are well aware of the defensive weakness of their immediate opponents and will be looking to capitalise on it as they go into the midweek clash against the Reds in their own backyard.

Leicester City-

The Foxes might field a strong side with not many changes from the team which took part in the last match in the Premier League against Huddersfield Town. The former Premier League champions will also look to go in with the same formation from the last match, a 4-4-2 combination. star striker Jamie Vardy is expected to miss out in this game with a slight niggle.

Liverpool-

With no Sadio Mane available for the Reds, owing to his three-match suspension due to an unfortunate incident in their fourth match of the season involving Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson, the Merseyside club will be going in with Daniel Sturridge as his replacement for the League Cup clash against Leicester City, just as they did in their last match in the Premier League. Manager Jurgen Klopp revealed that the likes of Danny Ward, Oxlade Chamberlain and Marko Grujic are all expected to start this game for his side.
