Liverpool vs Leicester live score updates: latest Premier League game, team news, TV channel and start time

Liverpool take on Leicester City in the Premier League tonight, looking to keep the pressure on leaders Manchester City.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are 12 points behind City but have two games in hand and could close the gap to single digits with a win at Anfield. They have won their last three league games but lost the second leg 1-0 in December.

Leicester are in inconsistent form this season, summed up by the weekend’s 4-1 humiliation at the hands of local rivals Nottingham Forest, after which Brendan Rodgers appeared to criticize his side.

They are 12th in the Premier League, having finished fifth for the past two seasons.
