Leicester City v Tottenham Hotspur

Liverpool remain without Alberto Moreno (foot) and Jordan Henderson (thigh), while Daniel Sturridge (muscular) is a doubt.

Leicester City have lost defender Danny Simpson to a hamstring injury.

Robert Huth (ankle) is still out and Matty James is not yet match fit, though Daniel Amartey returns from suspension.

Did you know? 

The last three Premier League meetings between these two clubs have had a total of 14 goals scored at an average of 4.7 goals per match.

Liverpool have lost three times to Leicester City under Jurgen Klopp; against no side have they lost more often during the manager’s reign.

The Reds have conceded three goals in their 10 Premier League matches at Anfield this season, their joint-best tally at this stage of a PL campaign (also three in 2006/07).

Six of the eight goals that Leicester have scored in their last four PL meetings with Liverpool have been by Jamie Vardy. He has scored six goals and been involved in seven in total versus Liverpool, more than against any other opponent in the competition.

What the managers say 

Jurgen Klopp: "They are a good organised side. Good at counter-attacking. It will be difficult, that's for sure. All teams in the League have quality, especially Leicester."
