It's table-toppers Leicester City versus the third-placed Liverpool on Sunday, November 22, at Anfield. The Reds come into this game with the absence of some quality players while the Foxes will look to consolidate their position.

For Jurgen Klopp, injury prevention will be on top of the list as his side has suffered massive injury blows over the last few games.

Pre-buzz around the game
Both sides have been plagued by injuries, but the Foxes have looked solid despite the blows and have stacked up 15 goals in six games that they have won on the trot. Eight of them come from Jamie Vardy. Expect this game to be a high-scoring affair despite Liverpool being the successful side in the head-to-head comparison. In the 28 games played between the two sides, the Reds have won 15 matches while Leicester has seven wins against Jurgen Klopp's men.
Liverpool emerged victorious the last time the two sides met registering a 4-0 win. However, a look at the Reds coming into this fixture will see them field a depleted squad. Joe Gomez was the latest entrant to the injury wing and Mo Salah tested positive for the coronavirus meaning he will self-isolate and miss the game against the Foxes. But they do have Sadio Mane and the in-form Diogo Jota who has been sensational for the side.
Who will win?
Leicester City is surprisingly being touted as a favorite to win this clash. Much of this can be attributed to the fact they're up against an injury-riddled Reds outfit. However, we predict a high-scoring affair, and Liverpool just might have the advantage.
