Liverpool v Leicester City: match preview

New club records are on offer to the champions at Anfield – namely 64 home league games unbeaten and scoring in 39 successive top flight league matches at home – but Jürgen Klopp is unlikely to have given them a second thought during a damaging international break. Joe Gomez’s knee injury, Jordan Henderson’s groin scare and Mohamed Salah’s positive Covid-19 tests have increased Liverpool’s selection problems before meeting a Leicester team enjoying the club’s best start to a top-flight season. It was Leicester, incidentally, who ended Liverpool’s 63-game unbeaten run at Anfield in 1981. Andy Hunter
