  • Leicester City will go head to head vs Liverpool for Saturday afternoon's early kickoff at the King Power Stadium
  • The Foxes are coming into this game on the back of just two wins in their last 5 games in the Premier League
  • Jurgen Klopp's side have lost last two games on the spin but are currently on a two-game winning streak on the road

Leicester City will be aiming to give their Champions League qualification hopes a shot in the arm by getting the better of an out-of-form Liverpool side on Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp's side started the season well but injuries have prematurely ended their title defense and they are now fighting to finish in the top four. The reigning champions have lost three out of their last five games in the league and might be dumped out of the top four with anything but a victory on Saturday.

The Foxes have won two more games in the English top-flight than their Saturday's opponents, but they could find slip up to fourth with a defeat at the King Power, for the Reds' have a better goal difference than their Saturday's hosts even though they have accumulated three points fewer.
