Soumaré remains on the ground not far from the central circle. The French, then treated out of bounds, has difficulty resuming his place.

What a huge opportunity missed by Salah and the Reds. In the process, the Foxes are emboldened but the pass to the box from Vardy to Iheanacho is intercepted.

Liverpool had scored their last 21 penalties in the Premier League, Salah missed the 22nd! His full center shot is repelled by Schmeichel, and the ball returns to the Egyptian, who takes his head off the bar !! Incredible !!!

Salah is unbalanced in the area by Ndidi, the referee does not hesitate for a single second, and it makes sense!

The Reds are very pressing in the opposing half of the field, and pose concerns in the recovery to their opponents. Evidenced by this interception of Manà © 30 meters from the goal on a hazardous transmission from Soumarà ©.

On a cross pushed back from the head by Ndidi, Henderson did not ask himself a question and landed a nice volley from outside the area which went over the crossbar. The idea was there.

The Senegalese receives the ball in the middle, and uses his body to turn around Amartey. He then unleashes a heavy strike, but the Foxes defenseman is there to block.

The German is the first player cautioned in this situation, and this very early in the game.

First offensive love for the Reds, with typical action. Alexandre-Arnold sends a sublime diagonal towards Tsimikas on the left, who crosses in stride. The handover does not benefit Jota.

Isolated last week after testing positive for Covid-19, Fabinho and Virgil van Dijk are back in the Liverpool eleven.

It’s the Foxes who kick off this beautiful Premier League poster!

The players enter the pitch at King Power Stadium a few minutes before kick-off. They are joined by the match’s referee, Andre Marriner.

Because the two teams also meet five days after a stunning quarter-final of the League Cup, won on penalties by the Reds (3-3, 5-4 t.a.b). Liverpool had won the right to face Arsenal in the last square of the competition.

Eliminated from the Europa League, transferred to C4 and only 10th in PL – although 6 points behind European places – Jamie Vardy’s Leicester is not in a good time.

A difficult sequence with this new shock that looks like revenge for the Foxes.

After their Boxing Day match against Leeds was postponed due to too many Covid-19s in the opponent’s ranks, Liverpool moved to Leicester with a little rest welcome to this intense end of year period in England. In case of victory, the Reds could take the opportunity to return to three points behind leaders Manchester City in the title race.
