Liverpool team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Leicester City

Sports Mole rounds up Liverpool's injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash with Leicester City.

Liverpool will be looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they welcome Leicester City to Anfield on Sunday night.

The Reds played out a 1-1 draw with Manchester City before the international break to leave themselves in third spot in the table, one point behind leaders Leicester.

Jurgen Klopp's side have won all four of their home Premier League games this season, although they have only just overcome Sheffield United and West Ham United in their last two outings at Anfield.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the team's injury and suspension news ahead of the clash with Leicester, who have been excellent in the early stages of the 2020-21 campaign.
