Today Liverpool will be heading to the King Power Stadium to play against Leicester City. The latter are currently without a manager since Claudio Ranieri got the boot only eight months after he won a historic Premier League title with his team.
The kick-off is set for 8 pm GMT. You can watch the game live on Sky Sports 1 HD and Sky Sports 1. Alternatively, you can hear the radio commentary on BBC Radio 5 Live.
What the managers say:
Jurgen Klopp told BBC Sport that Leicester’s athletes would show some things and they do want to do so. However, it is obvious that Liverpool will not let them. He reminded us of the game last week they had with Sevilla as well as the reaction after they scored. There is no need to mention that it seemed like two completely different games before and after scored that goal.
Craig Shakespeare told BBC Sport that regarding getting the team prepared, he thinks that his man-management style will do the trick. The message that he and his team want to send is that there are plenty of games out there and the players are good enough to get themselves out of this. He concluded stating that momentum is quite the big word in football. According to Shakespeare, they had that during the last year. Moreover, he said that the squad has been training very hard, especially in the last several years. They have entirely refocused themselves.
- A Liverpool win: 8/13
- A Draw: 16/5
- A Leicester City win: 24/5
