The Premier League leaders are back in action. Liverpool host Leicester City at the Anfield tomorrow after a week's rest for both the teams owing to the FA Cup fixtures over the weekend.

The Merseysiders had a topsy-turvy match the last time around against their boogie team, Crystal Palace. The Reds had to claw their way back from a 2-0 deficit to win the match 4-3, as their attacking trio of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Firmino netted in the match.

Liverpool will be hoping for another victory tomorrow against a side that has failed to win at Anfield since 2000.

The Foxes suffered heartbreak in their last match against the Wolves at the Molineux as Claude Puel's men came back from a 2-0 deficit at half time to make it 3-3 before 90 minutes, only to see Diogo Jota scoring an injury-time winner that gave the Wolves a fantastic victory. Leicester City will be hoping to end their three-match losing streak at Anfield.

The last encounter between Liverpool and Leicester ended with Liverpool winning 2-1 at the King Power Stadium.
