Leicester predicted lineup vs Liverpool: Preview, Latest big Team News, Prediction and Livestream- Quarter Final, EFL Cup 2021/22

Leicester have had a disappointing season so far and will look for a strong cup run to provide a boost to their form in the Premier League.

Leicester vs Liverpool Preview and Livestream

Despite all of their shortcomings in the league, Leicester have done well to reach the quarter final stage of this season’s EFL Cup, albeit being afforded easy fixtures against Milwall and Brighton in previous rounds. Progress beyond won’t be easy as a tough opponent in the form of Liverpool awaits them in the quarter finals. It will be interesting to see which Leicester shows up against the Reds, the swashbuckling, free-scoring version which comfortably beat Manchester United and Newcastle at the weekend, or the lackluster, out-of-ideas one which dropped down to the Europa Conference League.

If at all the former does make an appearance, it is sure to be one of the most enticing quarter-final fixtures the EFL Cup ha seen.

Liverpool are in red-hot form at the moment, blowing away every opposition they face. With the deadly duo Mo Salah and Sadio Mane firing on all cylinders, Jürgen Klopp will surely waste no opportunity to use them before they depart for the Africa Cup of Nations in January. As such, the Foxes have their task cut out if they are to add to their FA Cup from last summer.

Leicester predicted lineup vs Liverpool and Team News

Injuries and COVID-19: In a crucial blow to Leicester’s cup run, their first-choice center-back and captain Jonny Evans is out until atleast the last week of December this year. Combined with the continued absence of Jannik Vestergaard and Filip Benković through COVID-19, as well as Wesley Fofana to long-term injury, Leicester have something of a defensive nightmare on thier hands. With attackers Ademola Lookman, Ayoze Perez and Kelechi Iheanacho along with reliable midfielder Hamza Choudhary all having contracted the virus, the Leicester squad is in a bad place at the moment.

Leicester City vs Liverpool Prediction

Looking at Leicester’s stats this season, it’s clear that they’ve not been up to the standards expected of them and have been poor in their last three away games. Unless Liverpool decide to field a weakened side or Leicester’s COVID-affected players recover earlier than expected, it’s hard to see anything other than a comfortable 2-0 win for the Reds at home to progress to the semis.
