At the King Power Stadium on Monday night, Liverpool will face a Leicester team that is fighting valiantly to keep its Premier League status. The matchup is part of Liverpool’s ongoing push for European football.
After a difficult start to the season, the Foxes are currently in the bottom three of the Premier League after losing 5-3 to Fulham last weekend. Just seven years after winning the Premier League championship, Leicester faces the possibility of being demoted to the Championship.
Prior to the match, Klopp talked about Leicester’s predicament and predicted a “super intense game” against a Foxes team fighting for its life.
“Leicester won the league in 2016, which was my first year here. A very special story, indeed. remain for all time. However, their circumstance is unquestionably very different,” Klopp said during his pre-game press conference.
I really don’t want to contrast Brendan’s team with Dean’s team. It is clear that they are in a relegation battle. I attended the Everton game. A really good footballing team and some really strong moments in the game.
However, in the relegation battle, you are not always your best selves, which is why it is so challenging. But as a team, what we must anticipate is a competitor who will fight valiantly to maintain their position in the league. The boys have already heard what I said. The real battle now is this. Leicester’s at-home match. They require any and all points they can get. It will be a very challenging and intense game. ”.
Roberto Firmino and Naby Keita are still out, according to Klopp, who updated the team’s status on their health.
“No. Their team training has not yet begun. Bobby appeared to be almost there when I last saw him in training, but I don’t believe he will be in for the weekend. I’m assuming that after the Leicester game, we’ll begin team practice with him. Naby, no. ”.
