Leicester City are double trouble for Liverpool and Jürgen Klopp

Leicester City v Liverpool- Carabao Cup Third Round

Leicester City v Liverpool- Carabao Cup Third Round

"We've spoken about set-pieces since I've been here, more or less".

The defensive fragilities of Liverpool have already been exposed.

Jurgen Klopp could be without first-choice central defensive duo Dejan Lovren and Joel Matip when he tries to remedy Liverpool's problems at the back against Leicester City on Saturday.

Realistically, Liverpool - like most Premier League clubs - started the season with two winnable targets: the League Cup and the F.A. Cup. And then there was one, but the F.A. Cup, which Liverpool's season effectively hinges on, does not kick into action until January. But we can not defend a set-piece with a 50-yard header so there will be an opportunity with the second ball.

Salah has scored five goals in eight appearances since arriving at Anfield, despite fears that he would struggle to adapt to the Premier League after a hard two-year spell with Chelsea.

Vardy, 30, is a doubt for the Premier League fixture at the King Power with a groin injury, and that is good news for Liverpool due to his good goalscoring record against them in recent seasons.

If Vardy scores today he will be the first Leicester player since Danny Liddell (1932/33 to 1934/35) to find the net in three successive home league games against Liverpool.

The Reds find themselves languishing in eighth in the Premier League while they also saw their Carabao Cup campaign come to an end on Tuesday following defeat to Leicester City.

Though he stopped short at describing the capture of the Egyptian as a bargain, Klopp praised Salah for how he has hit the ground running at Anfield.

The Mirror report via Sky Deutschland that Tottenham and Liverpool are both eyeing Philipp, who is just 16.

"The game on Saturday will be a completely different game", added Matip. "We conceded the first goal against Sevilla and responded really well, we conceded the first goal against Burnley and responded really well". I always try to help the team, that's the most important thing. Compare that to Mourinho's United, who slam down the shutters and kill the game off as soon as they are ahead. The Algerian was the Premier League's outstanding player in Leicester's 2016 title win but he was a shadow of himself in 2016/2017.
