What is the team news?
Captain Jordan Henderson remains unavailable. Henderson missed the Boxing Day win over Swansea with a hamstring injury and no date has been put on his return.
Left-back Alberto Moreno could miss another three games with ankle trouble, Nathaniel Clyne is still sidelined by back trouble and forward Daniel Sturridge is a doubt after illness.

Daniel Amartey is available after he was banned for Boxing Day’s 2-1 defeat at Watford.
The utility man was sent off after collecting two yellow cards in 16 minutes in last weekend’s 2-2 draw against Manchester United but is back although Robert Huth (ankle), Danny Simpson (hamstring) and Matty James (Achilles) remain out for boss Claude Puel.
Midfielder Adrien Silva remains unregistered following the late arrival of his paperwork on transfer deadline day in the summer but will be available next month.
Provisional squad: Schmeichel, Jakupovic, Hamer, Fuchs, Morgan, Chilwell, Maguire, Benalouane, Dragovic, Amartey, Iborra, Choudhury, Ndidi, Gray, King, Albrighton, Mahrez, Musa, Vardy, Ulloa, Slimani, Okazaki, Iheanacho.
What are they saying?
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp:
“I saw the Manchester United game (a 2-2 draw on December 23) – they (Leicester) really play football now. They are still a wonderful counter-attacking team.
“The first goal they scored against United was, ‘wow’, a fantastic pass from (Demarai) Gray and (Riyad) Mahrez was in behind waiting for (Jamie) Vardy. It looks quite easy.
“They are fine-tuned and a good football-playing side. That may be the biggest change since Claude Puel was in.
“It will be a tough challenge again. This period in the year is really tough for all of us and you need to be ready. I like that, actually.”
Leicester manager Claude Puel:
“They (Liverpool) are a great team with good defenders, midfield and attacking players. They are a complete team. We have to look after our play and try to play our game against them.
“We had good opportunities and good results recently against big teams like against Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham. We like the big occasion.”

Liverpool have lost just once to Leicester at Anfield this century – a 2-0 defeat on May 3, 2000, thanks to goals from Tony Cottee and Phil Gilchrist.
The Reds have won five of the last six home meetings with the Foxes.
Speaking in his pre-match press conference on Friday afternoon, Klopp praised Leicester and discussed the threat they pose on the break:
“They are in a good way. Since Claude Puel they’ve changed. They are well organised and an incredible threat counter-attacking,” Klopp said.
“The speed of (Jamie) Vardy, (Riyad) Mahrez and (Demarai) Gray is dangerous.
“They haven’t had the results in the past few games but that will make them more greedy for the points.”
