Leicester are on a roll, they went to Southampton and conquered last weekend, especially after the saints were reduced to ten, Harry Maguire's screamer handed the Foxes the maximum points that took them to seventh on the log, their second win on the bounce after their opening day loss at Old Trafford.

In town against the 2016 champions is the league leaders, Liverpool; three wins in three and no goals conceded, it certainly is still early days but Liverpool are real title contenders.

Jurgen Klopp’s men laboured to a 1:0 win at home to Brighton, goalkeeper Allison was the man of the match as the Seagulls threatened to find an equalizer, that’s why he was brought in, good business so far.

Liverpool won both legs of this fixture last season, but the previous two before that on this ground were well won by the Foxes, with a quick reminder of Jamie Vardy’s brilliance in the season the Foxes stunned the world.

Mohammed Salah is yet to hit the gear that got him famous last term, Sadio Mane was a bit quiet in the win over Brighton and Roberto Firminho is yet to spark to life, when the three do, they will be unstoppable.

Nigerian forward, Kelechi Iheanacho will spearhead Leicester’s attack in the absence of the suspended Vardy, alongside youngster, James Madison, it will be an explosive encounter, an interesting fixture to start the weekend with.

Verdict: Liverpool to win or draw
