Leicester City begin life after Claudio Ranieri tonight, as they host Liverpool at the King Power Stadium.
The defending Premier League champions are still without a Premier League win in 2017 and results this weekend mean they now find themselves in the relegation zone, albeit just a point away from safety.
Liverpool enter the tie knowing that a win will put them back into third, 11 points off of leaders Chelsea. Jurgen Klopp’s side have been in mixed form so far in 2017, with just two wins in all competitions. A win tonight would give his side their first consecutive victories since December and put their quest for a Champions League place back on track.
Craig Shakespeare makes one change to the squad Ranieri named in his final fixture as Leicester manager against Sevilla, with Ahmed Musa being replaced by Shinji Okazaki. Israel Slimani (groin) and Leonardo Ulloa (thigh) both passed late fitness tests and are included on the bench.
Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson misses the encounter with a foot injury, whilst Daniel Sturridge misses out through illness. Emre Can replaces Henderson in midfielder, with youngsters Ben Woodburn and Kevin Stewart coming in on the bench. The squad is otherwise unchanged from Liverpool’s 2-0 victory over Spurs last time out.
