Liverpool are in the midst of one of the worst injury crises the club has seen in decades. Jürgen Klopp’s side has been ravaged in recent weeks with players dropping like flies. With a visit from the league leaders on Sunday, Liverpool are lucky that Alisson Becker is fit to face Leicester City in the midst of the injury crisis.
