Liverpool v Leicester XI revealed – Benteke dropped, huge changes in the Liverpool team 

A week on from clinching the Christmas top spot with an impressive win at Everton, Claudio Ranieri’s men now return to Merseyside hoping to strengthen their surprise package title claims more against a Liverpool side who are struggling for form and certainly vulnerable without fit central defenders. Jurgen Klopp’s squad managed to collect only a single point from their last nine available matches and, with lethal force of Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez in town, the Reds have suffered an untimely loss of Martin Skrtel due to a hamstring injury ahead of Liverpool’s 4,000th match in the Premier League.

Jurgen Klopp has won only 3 of his first nine Premier League matches in charge of Liverpool; ironically the same tally that Brendan Rodgers managed in eight league fixtures as the Reds manager this campaign before being shown the door. However, the German manager will welcome the stat that Leicester have won just one of their last 10 matches on Boxing Day in the top flight of English football.

Here is the starting lineup for Liverpool and Leicester City for this exciting match.

Liverpool Starting Line-up:

Mignolet, Clyne, Lovren, Sakho, Moreno, Can, Henderson, Lallana, Coutinho, Firmino, Origi

Liverpool Substitutes:

Bogdan, Toure, Benteke, Lucas, Allen, Teixeira, Randall

Leicester City Starting Line-up:

Schmeichel, Simpson, Huth, Morgan (c), Fuchs, Mahrez, Kanté, King, Albrighton, Okazaki, Vardy

Leicester City Substitutes:

Schwarzer, De Laet, Kramarić, Ulloa, Dyer, Wasilewski, Inler.
