Leicester city Boss Claude Puel is without striker Jamie Vardy who continues to serve his suspension after being sent off against Wolves, so Kelechi Iheanacho is likely to start up front once more as he did at St Mary’s Stadium last weekend.
The striker is a huge miss for the Foxes considering he has netted 27 times against the big six teams. That’s 43 per cent of Leicester’s entire goal tally against that calibre of opposition since they returned to the top flight in 2014.
Once of the main criticisms of Puel’s spell at Leicester has been the propensity for his side to be too tentative early and conceding the first goal as a result. The Foxes have played 17 league games since January 31 2017 and have fallen behind in 11 of them – including two of their three this season.
Without Vardy to lead the line Liverpool should fancy their chances getting ahead early. Klopp’s team have been ahead at the interval in all three matches so far and with an in-form defence to call upon, it’s likely to be tough going in the initial stages for the hosts.

Liverpool will look to continue their perfect start when they head to Leicester for Saturday’s early kick-off.
Dejan Lovren is likely to remain side-lined with a groin problem with Klopp suggesting that the Croatian defender would be unlikely to return prior to the upcoming international break.

PSG SIGNS CHOUP-MOTING FROM STOKE CITY
Paris Saint-Germain have signed striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting after his Stoke deal was cancelled by mutual consent.
The 29-year-old joined Stoke in the summer of 2017, going on to make 32 league and cup appearances.
The Stoke website said: “The club would like to take this opportunity to thank Maxim for his efforts and wish him well in the future.”
French champions PSG have also completed a deal for left-back Juan Bernat, who has signed a three-year contract after a fee was agreed with Bayern Munich.
Capped seven times by Spain, Bernat has played 115 times for Bayern, winning four Bundesliga titles.
