The long wait is finally over for the Liverpool fans as their side is back in action this Monday as they travel to the King Power Stadium, the home of the Champions of England. Leicester City, who are yet to take a point in the league since the turn of the year, are fresh from a 2-1 loss to Sevilla in the Champions League and will go into this game with care-taker boss Craig Shakespeare, having sacked Claudio Ranieri earlier in the week. Jurgen Klopp’s men will look to pile on the misery on the Foxes but they have shown a weakness against side at that end of the table and Leicester City will want to exploit this to try and take a point or three from this game. This is surely going to be an entertaining affair and here is the predicted lineup that Klopp might field for this tie:

Team News:

The Red Devils were sweating over the fitness of striker Daniel Sturridge and defender Dejan Lovren. However, both players are back in training and may find a place on the bench in this game. Marko Grujic is also back in training, leaving Ovie Ejaria and Danny Ings as the only absentees for Liverpool.

Expected lineup (4-3-3):

Simon Mignolet:

The Belgian is the first choice shot-stopper for Liverpool this season and he should keep his place in the side for this tie.

Nathaniel Clyne:

One of the first names on the team sheet for Liverpool this season, Clyne, is expected to start this game on the right side of the defense for Liverpool.

Joel Matip:

The senior defender in the side at the moment, Matip, will have to be at his best against the likes of Vardy if Liverpool are to take anything from this game,

Lucas Leiva:

Though Klavan is back fit, Lucas was superb in the victory over Tottenham and did enough to keep his place in the side for this tie.

James Milner:

Though not as good as he was at the start of the season, Milner, is still an important part of the plans for the club and should start this game at left-back.

Jordan Henderson:

The skipper of the side, Henderson, will have his work cut out against an exciting attack at the King Power this week.

Georginio Wijnaldum:

A stupendous performance against the Spurs game Liverpool all three points in the previous game and Klopp will hope that he can put in a similar performance in this game.

Adam Lallana:

Having just signed a new contract, Lallana, will be full of confidence going into this trip to Leicester City.

Sadio Mane:

Easily the most effective player for Liverpool this season, Mane was back among the goals in the previous game and he should start on the right flank for his side.

Roberto Firmino:

Yet again sticking to a false-9, Jurgen Klopp should use Firmino to lead the attack of the side ahead of Sturridge and Origi on the night.

Philippe Coutinho:

Though not in great form, Coutinho, is a top class star and is an impact player and Leicester have to keep him away from danger to take anything from this game.

Here is how they would lineup:
