Leicester City host champions Liverpool in an intriguing game that will have ramifications in the battle for a top four finish and qualification for Champions League football.

But Klopp has expected more from the Reds, despite their injury crisis: “Even though I know the reason why we are not flying, I expect us to win more games than we have. That’s what I am concerned about. We know we are not completely clueless but we know we have to be successful in the future and that’s what we’ll try to be. We will try our absolute best to make the best season from now on. We will go for it. That’s our job.”

While the Reds will not give up on defending their title, with City 10 points clear and in possession of a game in hand, the focus will be on fending off competition from Chelsea and West Ham, one point behind, as well as Everton and Tottenham, who face Pep Guardiola’s side later today, in a gripping top four chase.

Follow live goal and score updates from the King Power, including analysis and reaction in what promises to be a candidate for game of the weekend, while there will be team news for Crystal Palace vs Burley in the 3pm kick-off in the Premier League.

MADDISON SPEAKS TO BT SPORT



We know when we play Liverpool, it’s going to be tough because they can do both parts of the game very well. It’s a case of staying in the game. We’re a top team and we know we will get chances.

“We were solid throughout. The more they start going for it the more space opens up for [Harvey] Barnes on the counter-attack so we utilised that brilliantly I think.

“I don’t know what was going through my head and I think Anthony Taylor was lost too. He was getting told this and that – it’s a penalty, a free-kick… Daniel [Amartey] claimed the touch and got a flick-on it but it turned out to be onside. That was a big moment for us to kick on in the game.

“Jamie Vardy sniffs out little opportunities. It was a mix-up between the goalkeeper and the centre-half. It’s just one of those things. You can’t look into it too much. Alisson is having a tough time at the moment but he is a top keeper and I’m sure he will be back. I’m just happy we could pounce on that mistake.

“It’s another three points away at Liverpool. We take it game by game. We have so much quality in the squad. We have a lot of injuries by the way. It doesn’t really get talked about because we’re not the ‘big six’ but we are utilising the squad brilliantly. We are right up there and we’re not up there by fluke. We will keep working and grinding out results against big teams like Liverpool. It’s about taking the big moments. We weren’t at our best to be honest but I’ll take those big moments.”
