Liverpool predicted XI v Leicester City: Captain Henderson returns

Posted by

Jurgen Klopp will likely ring the changes again this evening as he continues the ‘two-team’ policy he’s adopted due to our fixture congestion.

In fact, the only starters from the FA Cup draw with West Ham we expect to keep their place in the side are goalkeeper Simon Mignolet, right-back Nathaniel Clyne and centre-back Dejan Lovren.

Mamadou Sakho should come in for Steven Caulker next to the Croat, while Alberto Moreno should come in on the left of defence in place of promising Aussie Brad Smith.

The ‘front-6’ will all be fresh and rested after missing Saturday’s FA Cup stalemate and hopefully will be our able to put in a dynamic, exciting performance versus the Premier League table-toppers Leicester City.

Lucas should replace Kevin Stewart as anchorman, with Emre Can and fit again Jordan Henderson alongside him – with the German and Englishman replacing Cameron Brannagan and Joe Allen in the midfield three.

Up top, Adam Lallana and James Milner should flank Roberto Firmino – our in-form Brazilian forward.

Coutinho, Daniel Sturridge and Divock Origi are not yet ready to start.

Our last Premier League match was the 5-4 win against Norwich of course, and Klopp will be demanding a similar offensive but far more improved defensive performance at the King Power Stadium.

Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez will punish any lapses, so the return of Lovren to the Premier League side will hopefully shore us up at the back.
