Jurgen Klopp’s Reds are primed for Boxing Day action as they return to the topflight for the first time since being crowned world champions.
And it is Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City who stands in Liverpool’s way of stretching their lead atop of the table to a commanding 13 points, where the opportunity to extend their unbeaten run to 35 is also on the cards.
The Reds were dealt another injury blow in Qatar, with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain ruled out for the foreseeable future after sustaining ankle ligament damage.
And after rotating effectively throughout the month, the boss has largely stuck with the side who overcame Flamengo last time out.
Liverpool are full of confidence and momentum and a win tonight would provide yet another boost in the quest for the title ahead of another relentless run which sees the Reds play three games in 10 days.
