Leicester City will go to Anfield tomorrow Sunday the 22nd of November, and to see our team higher in the table than Liverpool is of course something that shows what type of quality players Brendan Rodgers have to his disposal.Embed from Getty Images
A number of injuries as we know, but also not rosen red at Liverpool either, so it will be an open game and hopefully Leicester City will manage to compete at Anfield. A bit uncertainty about how the team will be picked and Brendan often juggles and mix things in a way that often is surprising.
Though we don’t believe him to make to many changes from the previous game as Leicester again showed great power and won their fifth game in a row, including European games.
The LCFC Line-Up
Kasper Schmeichel is a certain pick in goal, James Justin and Christian Fuchs also looks obvious after some great performances lately. Jonny Evans and Wesley Fofana are also certain, then it’s a bit of a riddle if Brendan will play with three in the back or just stick to a four men backline.Embed from Getty Images
We would probably see a defensive team and we believe that Luke Thomas could make the start again, and the rest of the team picks it self with Mendy and Tielemans in central roles, Maddison and Praet and of course Jamie Vardy up front.
The we have the following team
Schmeichel – Justin, Evans, Fofana, Fuchss, Thomas – Praet, Maddison, Tielemans, Mendy – Vardy
Looking at history, you have of course a number of thrilling games v. Liverpool. With Leicester City eyes must mention that very strange 1980/81 season when Leicester City won both games, first 2-0 at home and 2-1 away at Anfield, scoring all five goals!. Despite these two wonderful results Leicester City had to face relegation.Embed from Getty Images
In that PL winning season, the game at home ended in a 2-0 win, away at Anfield a defeat 1-0. After that win in 2016 it’s been a bit dry, but managed to win at home also that following season, 16/17.
The Opponent, Three Players of Importance
In our 3 v 3 we are looking at the following specials,
1. Andy Robertson
Robertson is a vital player in the Jurgen Klopp set up, with the Scot that newly captained his national team in the qualification to the next Euro’s, being so influential with his pace and powering attacking style. Difficult to stop and a player that has done the hurdles to come to the top.
2. Diego Jota
New signing Diego Jota will most certainly be in the starting line-up and has given Jurgen Klopp a new dimention with this player. The former Wolves wonder is a new fans favorite and when they return to the stadium, they will most certainly like to see him in the line-up.
3. Georginio Wijnaldum
This is a player that by many is not seen as the most important midfielder at Liverpool, but the Dutch national team captain must be rated up there among the best. With a number of injuries he is the player to stop as he is a clever passer and great finisher.
Would be lovely with a win at Anfield, hasn’t happened much, and we have to go back 20 years to find that happening, during the days of MON, and goals from Phil Gilchrist and Tony Cottee. But will it happen, not really thinking that, but have to be positive this is the prediction
