Match preview

Liverpool will look to extend their lead in the Premier League to seven points after Manchester City lost to Newcastle tonight.

The Reds take on Leicester this evening at Anfield.

Ahead of the match Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said: “They (Leicester) like playing against the top sides. They are not a massive counter-attacking side like they have been in the past but it’s still a threat. They don’t give you lots of space.

“We expect a very dangerous opponent. They have quality and are a super team. I am sure they are not happy with their position.

“They have invested a lot of money in the team. They’d have been happy with their position a few years ago but not after winning the league and playing in the Champions League.”

Leicester City manager Claude Puel has talked about his side enjoying a break as they weren’t in FA Cup action at the weekend.

He said: “It was a possibility to rest and to change our ideas, to come back to training with intensity, quality and focus.

“It’s a good thing for these players, for the team, but we need to move on, to look forward, and now we have a fantastic challenge in these games.”
