The recently crowned Club World Cup champions Liverpool will travel to the King Power Stadium to face Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City in the last fixture of the Boxing Day.
Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City face the fight to remain relevant in this season’s Premier League title race as they host league leaders Liverpool on the Boxing Day.
The Foxes looked like the only team that could challenge the high-flying European champions this season a few weeks ago, but a draw and a defeat in their last two fixtures has taken the air out of their sails.
Provided they don’t get a result against Jurgen Klopp’s side on Thursday, it will all but end the hopes of Leicester fans who were hoping for a 2015/16 repeat this term.
As for the recently crowned Club World Cup champions, defeat in this fixture won’t be the worst thing that could happen to them but they’d still like to carry their unbeaten record into the New Year with a win that would mean a giant leap towards their first league title in almost 3 decades.
