Brendan Rodgers returns to Anfield on Saturday with his high flying Leicester City side. The Foxes have been performing well above expectations in the Premier League this season and enter the game on Saturday in 3rd place. Liverpool will have to be at their brilliant best to continue their winning streak and extend their record to 17 consecutive victories. This is our predicted Liverpool lineup to face Leicester City:
Goalkeeper – Adrian
Alisson Becker is nearing full fitness and this will likely be the Spaniard’s last game as first choice. He has performed his duties admirably whilst the Brazilian has been injured.
Right back – Trent Alexander-Arnold
The Scouser in our team had an excellent game against Red Bull Salzburg, assisting his mate Andy Robbo for the Reds’ second goal.
Centre back – Joel Matip
Matip missed out in the week due to injury and Liverpool conceded 3 against the ferocious Red Bull Salzburg attack.
Centre back – Virgil van Dijk
Liverpool’s talismanic Dutchman will be looking to shake off a below par performance in midweek, Jamie Vardy will force him to.
Left back – Andy Robertson
We said he has to add goals to his game and he must’ve heard us because he netted in the very next game.
Defensive midfield – Fabinhoo
The best in the world in his position, he will have a task on his hands facing James Maddison.
Centre midfield – Jordan Henderson
Hendo was hooked midweek after losing control of the midfield in the second half, we’ll need a much better showing from the captain this time out.
Centre midfield – Naby Keita
Surely he has to start. The Reds’ middle 3 have been impotent at best this year, we need Keita in the Liverpool lineup against Leicester to provide some spark.
Left wing – Sadio Mane
The Senegalese midfielder will be hoping to follow up his midweek strike with a goal against the Foxes.
Right wing – Mo Salah
Following a poor string of games, the Egyptian king scored twice in the Champions League on Wednesday.
Striker – Roberto Firmino
Having provided assists for both Mane and Salah on Wednesday night, fingers crossed he can bag for himself on Saturday.
