After having three back to back setbacks against Newcastle, West Brom and Watford, Liverpool will now have to face another big obstacle on Boxing Day and it is the cruising Leicester. The December fixtures was supposed to be easy for Liverpool, but it has turned out to be a disaster for Klopp and his men. Liverpool have failed to win any of their premier league matches in December.
In fact, they started December with a big win against Southampton in the Capital One, but since then they have been struggling. But, Klopp will be looking to put the setbacks away and give the Liverpool fans a big Christmas gift by winning against the premier league table toppers, Leicester. Here is Liverpool’s predicted line-up to face Leicester:
Goalkeeper: Simon Mignolet
Last week it was Adam Bogdan’s golden chance to knock Mignolet off the top and hold down a starting eleven spot as Liverpool’s first team goalkeeper, unfortunately the Hungarian did not take his chance. Instead, he ended up awarding Watford their first goal of the match. He looked nervous and shaky then on, but was able to make a fine save to deny Ighalo. Bogdan started ahead of Mignolet last week because the Belgian was out injured, but now he has returned from injury and we expect him to return directly into Liverpool’s starting eleven.
