Liverpool FC looks to alter a horror injury list when Premier League’s finest Leicester come to town on Sunday. Most of Jurgen Klopp’s defence roster is sidelined, along with understudy Rhys Williams, ahead of facing one of the league’s best striker’s in Jamie Vardy. England duo Joe Gomez and Jordan Henderson were injured playing international matches and are both ruled out, the former most likely for the season.
It is an injury crisis the scale of which manager Klopp will not have had to deal with often in his career. Still, didn’t want to bemoan his side’s luck during his pre-match press conference and instead stressed the importance of making the most of the players they do have at their disposal. The fact that the match is at Anfield is positive which Klopp will look to harness, though; his side is now unbeaten in 63 home league games.
Leicester started a game week top of the table, and whispers have already begun as to whether they could repeat what seemed like a once-in-a-lifetime achievement. Manager Brendan Rodgers welcomes back prime right-back Timothy Castagne following a hamstring injury that has sidelined him for last four games.
Leicester have all of the odds to be once again the team that ends Liverpool’s unbeaten home run at 63 games and, with a makeshift squad coming up against the league’s joint-top scorer, it would not be a huge surprise to see that happen.
