Liverpool are currently on an 18-game unbeaten run in all competitions since losing at Manchester City (4-1) on April 1st, winning 13 and drawing five. They have scored 45 goals during this sequence.
The Reds have not won a League Cup tie in normal time at Anfield in the last seven matches.
The last time they won a home tie in normal time was in November 2016 in a 2-0 win over Leeds.
Jurgen Klopp‘s side have not this season conceded a goal in any game after the 42nd minute.
There have been only seven goalless draws in 120 meetings between the teams in all competitions.
Liverpool have failed to score in only two of the last 29 home encounters in all competitions – in successive games in April 1999 and May 2000.
Tim Robinson from West Sussex is the referee – he has never taken charge of Liverpool before. He refereed Leicester twice last season – they lost them both.
Potential danger man
Jamie Vardy has netted 10 goals in his 17 appearances against the Reds in all competitions.
He is Leicester’s equal-top goalscorer against Liverpool, along with Ernie Hine.
Vardy scored after just 21 seconds of City’s 4-1 win at Southampton earlier this month.
Leicester have won all six away games this season in league and cup, scoring 13 goals in the process while conceding just twice.
Last Saturday they went back to the summit of the Championship with a 1-0 home victory over Bristol City – Vardy scoring from the penalty spot.
The striker already has three goals to his name in 2023/24.
Only Andy Cole and Harry Kane have more top-flight goals against the Reds than Vardy.
Milestones up for grabs
Liverpool’s next win will be their 150th in the League Cup (including penalty shoot-outs).
The Reds are seven goals short of registering 500 in the competition.
Darwin Nunez could make his 50th appearance for Liverpool. He currently has 18 goals and six assists.
