Liverpool will face off against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium this Monday night as they try to collect maximum points on the road in the Premier League. The Reds managed to secure a 1-0 win over Brentford recently which will keep them in high spirits going into this clash versus the Foxes.
Jurgen Klopp will once again opt for a 3-2-2-3 formation and is expected to name a strong first team for this game. Diogo Jota will get a chance to impress from the start while Darwin Nunez makes way for him and drops to the bench.
3-2-2-3 Liverpool Predicted Lineup To Face Leicester City
Alisson Becker will function in between the sticks for the Reds after securing a clean sheet in his last league appearance. Klopp will once again name a back three of Ibrahima Konate, Virgil Van Dijk and Andrew Robertson for this game as they try to keep the home team frustrated throughout the 90 minutes.
Joel Matip and Joe Gomez will provide cover for the defensive positions on the bench.
Fabinho and Trent Alexander-Arnold will feature as the holding midfielders as they try to dictate the tempo of the game at the centre of the park.
Curtis Jones and Jordan Henderson will play just ahead of them as the free-flowing, box-to-box midfielders. The energetic duo will be instructed to make some clever runs toward the Leicester penalty box at every chance they get.
James Milner and Harvey Elliott will be available for selection on the Liverpool bench and might come on to make an impact in the second 45 minutes if Klopp decides to call upon their services.
Diogo Jota will get an opportunity to catch the eye as the left-sided wide player while Mohamed Salah looks to weave his magic from the right.
Cody Gakpo will spearhead Klopp’s attack on the attacking end of the pitch. He has to find a way to cause a few problems inside the Leicester penalty box if the Reds can come away with an easy win from the King Power.
Darwin Nunez and Luis Diaz will be named on the bench as they wait for their chance to influence the game in the latter stages if required.
