Liverpool are looking to register a fourth straight win in the English Premier League for the first time this season when they host Leicester City.

The reds resumed league duty with a 3-1 win against Aston Villa on Boxing Day, while Leicester were unlucky in a 3-0 demolition by Newcastle.

Jurgen Klopp’s side come into the game in sixth place with 25 points, while the Foxes have 17 points and are 13th on the log.

Liverpool’s top-flight scoring streak at Anfield does stand at a whopping 31 matches since a 1-0 loss to Fulham in March 2021.

Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah have both scored seven league goals for Liverpool this season and will be keen to add onto their tally.

Liverpool eased to a 2-0 success over the Foxes in February after ending 2021 with a 1-0 loss to Leicester at the King Power.

Leicester have been better performers on the road, recording four straight away wins including EPL wins at Wolves, Everton and West Ham.

All 3 points still will not guarantee Liverpool a place in the top five but it will be a huge step toward their comeback after already losing four games this season.

The game comes at at time when, despite heavy links to Manchester United, Dutch attacker Cody Gakpo will join Liverpool from PSV Eindhoven.
