Liverpool return to action after the international break with a game against Leicester City on Sunday, November 22. Before going to the international break, the Reds played a 1-1 draw with Manchester City, while the Foxes celebrated a 1-0 win over Wolves.

Ahead of the game, BBC Sport football expert Mark Lawrenson stated his prediction.

“Liverpool are short of fit centre-halves and they also need to find a way of dealing with Jamie Vardy’s pace.

“It may well be that they use Fabinho alongside Joel Matip at the back, if the Brazilian midfielder is fit after his hamstring injury, or ask Jordan Henderson to drop back into defence if Fabinho is not ready yet.

“Nat Phillips is a natural centre-half of course, but his real strength is heading and Leicester never really load the box and send in a lot of crosses.

“Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold is out too and whether it is Neco Williams or James Milner who replaces him on Sunday, it will be as part of a back four that have never played a competitive game together as a unit before.

“Vardy is probably scenting blood. They will do very well to keep him quiet.”

Lawrenson’s score prediction: 1-1
