Liverpool can heap further misery on Brendan Rodgers when they host Leicester after 18 days without league action, but he will be out for a third win in four matches against the Reds.
Here are 10 things to know ahead of the game.
1. Leicester on a downward spiral
Last season, it looked as though Leicester were primed to pip Liverpool to a place in the top four, prior to a poor end to the campaign.
While Rodgers’ men no doubt felt they could challenge again, 2021/22 has become more disappointing by the week.
The Foxes head into Thursday’s match sitting 10th in the table and they have won only twice in the league since the end of November.
2. Rodgers under pressure
As was the case during his time as Liverpool manager, Rodgers appears to be suffering a third season to forget at Leicester.
Granted, injuries haven’t helped matters but there is arguably a feeling that his squad have stopped playing for him, with performances often poor.
Rodgers called out his players after Sunday’s humiliating 4-1 defeat at Nottingham Forest, but in classic Brendan fashion, his lack of self-awareness was plain to see.
It is never the Northern Irishman’s fault, not helping dispel those David Brent comparisons, and he badly needs a result against the Reds.
3. Possible Leicester starting lineup
As stated, Leicester‘s season has been injury-plagued, with many key figures missing at different points in the campaign.
The Foxes are still without a number of absentees for the trip to Anfield, with defenders Jonny Evans, Timothy Castagne, Ryan Bertrand and Wesley Fofana all missing.
Jamie Vardy is also out, while Nampalys Mendy may not be ready after Africa Cup of Nations duty with Mane’s triumphant Senegal team.
Predicted Leicester XI: Schmeichel; Pereira, Vestergaard, Soyuncu, Thomas; Ndidi, Tielemans, Albrighton, Maddison; Daka, Iheanacho.
4. Who’s out for Liverpool?
In what seems an incredibly rare occurrence over the past couple of years, Liverpool have an almost clean bill of health.
Meanwhile, Salah is back in quickfire time after his AFCON adventure, helping Egypt reach the final – but Mane will not feature, though, having celebrated long after Sunday’s final – he is to return to Liverpool on Wednesday evening.
5. Predicted Reds XI
All of a sudden, Klopp has a plethora of options at his disposal, which can only bode well ahead of a run of 10 games in 30 days.
In attack, the relentless Salah will be desperate to start and may well see his wish granted, with Luis Diaz hoping for a maiden Liverpool start.
6. Premier League debut for Diaz?
It seems highly likely that we will see new big-money signing Diaz at some point on Thursday, as he makes his Premier League bow.
If Diaz does make an appearance against Leicester, he will be looking to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Michael Owen, Luis Suarez, Salah, Mane and Jota in scoring on his Premier League debut for Liverpool.
It would be illustrious company to join.
7. Klopp calls for big atmosphere!
Speaking to the media on Wednesday, Klopp urged the home supporters to create a cauldron of noise at Anfield:
“We have to create together a very special atmosphere. This last part of the season we have  games from now until the next international break.
“With the Cardiff game , but now  coming up and if we as a club, as a team, together with our supporters, want to reach the maximum for us, whatever that will be, we better start creating atmospheres on the highest levels.
“[Thursday] night is a good chance to do that.”
If you’re going to the game, you heard the man!
8. Did You Know?
Rodgers may be a man under pressure at the moment, but he is looking to continue a good recent record against Liverpool.
Victory for Leicester on Thursday would be their third win out of four tussles with the Reds, also completing a trio of league victories in a row.
A 3-1 win at the King Power Stadium last season put the Foxes in control of their top-four destiny, while Ademola Lookman’s goal settled the league clash just after Christmas earlier in this campaign.
At least there was the aforementioned League Cup victory for Liverpool the week before!
9. Kavanagh in charge
Chris Kavanagh has been confirmed as the referee for Thursday’s match, while Darren England is on VAR duty.
Liverpool fans will have fond memories of Kavanagh’s only game in charge of the Reds so far this season, as he allowed enough stoppage time for Divock Origi to fire home the winner at Wolves in December.
