Leicester City v Liverpool

Match preview

31 Aug 2018

Liverpool are aiming to maintain their winning start to the season and are yet to concede a goal ahead of their trip to Leicester City.

Team news

Leicester have no fresh injury concerns with only Matty James (Achilles) and Jamie Vardy (suspension) unavailable.

Liverpool are also in good health and could name an unchanged line-up for the fourth consecutive Matchweek.

The Reds do, however, remain without Dejan Lovren (groin) and long-term absentee Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (knee).

Did you know?

Leicester have won three of their last four home meetings with Liverpool in all competitions, although they lost this fixture 3-2 last season.

Liverpool are looking to win their opening four matches of a Premier League season for the first time. They last opened a top-flight campaign with four wins back in 1990/91 under Kenny Dalglish.

Alisson could become the fourth goalkeeper in PL history to keep a clean sheet in his first four starts, after Alex Manninger (first six), Anders Lindegaard (first five) and Jose Reina (first four).

Half of the six goals scored in the 90th minute onwards this season have come from Leicester or Liverpool, with two and one respectively. These sides are also responsible for 12 of the 37 goals scored in or after the 90th minute during 2018. Leicester have eight, Liverpool have four.

Referee: Paul Tierney
Darren Cann, Adrian Holmes
Fourth official: Andre Marriner
