Leicester and Liverpool are gearing up for their 30th meeting of the Premier League era. The Reds claimed a 3-0 victory an Anfield earlier this season and won 4-0 in this fixture last term. However, the Foxes are currently third in the table, three points and once place above Liverpool.
Jurgen Klopp’s side head into this game on the back of two defeats as their title defence appears to be slipping away.
“I hear teams like Liverpool and Manchester United talking about looking at being in the top four,” said Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers.
“So where does that leave teams like ourselves in terms of our aspirations if the Premier League champions and some of the superpowers of our game are looking to get into the top four.
“I think that shines a light on how amazing the players here have been up until now and what we have to try to do is quietly go about our work, being as professional as we can be and see where it takes us.
“There are so many games left to play, my only focus is looking at our performance level.
“You can’t worry about where we are at now as we’ve been very good to this point.”
Klopp has tried to remain upbeat followinh the 4-1 defeat at home to Manchester City last time out.
“Really, criticism is always like this. Somebody can tell me whatever went wrong, stuff like this, I know the things probably before already so that’s not a problem. We take that,” he said.
“But it is not the last game of the season so there are a lot of games to come. If we would have played more often as we played (against City), we would not be 10 points behind City but it is not a dreamland or whatever.
“We have to accept the reality and we do that. We will fight, we will fight for results. We did that (against City).
“We didn’t get it because of our own fault, that’s clear, but the good stuff we should keep.”
