Leicester At Anfield On New Year's Day
Liverpool face Leicester on New Year's Day as the Reds look to continue their streak of good performances after a 4-1 win over Swansea.
Injuries for the Reds mean they are without Brad Jones, Joe Allen and Glen Johnson. A doubt still remains for Dejan Lovren too. Also unavailable to start will be Martin Skrtel who is suspended, it is presumed Kolo Toure will take his place. For Leicester they are without Paul Konchesky, Andy King and Kasper Schmeichel.
Leicester currently find themselves bottom of the league having amassed just 13 points. They have lost five out of their last six fixtures in the league, winning their most recent game against Hull 1-0. Liverpool on the other hand find themselves in 8th on 28 points. The Reds have won three out of their last six games, losing one and drawing two in the process.
The last time the two sides met was at the start of December this year. The Reds got the better of Leicester in a 3-1 win with goals from Lallana, Gerrard and Henderson. In terms of meetings at Anfield, Liverpool haven't lost against Leicester since 2000, the Foxes won the game 2-0 that day.
- Liverpool scored four goals for the first time since March against Swansea.
- Leicester haven't won back to back away games since November 2003 in the Premier League.
- The Reds have scored seven goals in their last the league matches.

@_TheLiverBird 2-0 to Liverpool! We have confidence and are playing an improved game. Go Reds!Apologies for the slightly thin on the ground preview today, I'm a bit under the weather! Here's hoping the Reds can continue their winning ways tomorrow and collect all three points against Leicester tomorrow.
