Liverpool travel to Leicester City on Tuesday as they look to build on their inspiring win against Stoke City on Sunday.

Where to Watch Live

Kick-off is set for 7:45pm GMT. Live coverage will be available on BT Sport1 and BT Sport1 HD.


The Championship winners from last season have found it very hard over the last couple of months and have accumulated only two points since their heroic 5-3 win over Manchester United in September.

The newly promoted club have also taken points off Arsenal but the pressure of the Premier League has seemingly got to them, as they look for their first win in over two months. Leicester have lost four of their last five games in all competitions with their last game ending in a 3-2 loss to QPR as the London based club snatched a win in the closing period of the game.

Meanwhile, Brendan Rodgers will be breathing a sigh of relief after Glen Johnson's goal gave them three crucial points against Stoke City which got them back into the top half of the table. A win here will build the pressure on Arsenal and Manchester United, who both face formidable rivals in Southampton and Stoke themselves.

With Daniel Sturridge set to return shortly, a win here will build a premise for Rodgers to get his side back on track for a top four finish, a task which seemed unlikely after they failed to win a single game in the whole of November.

What Managers Say

Brendan Rodgers: "We're in a moment now where we need to get results and we need to obviously improve our style of play but we need to have the confidence in the team," he explained after the win over Stoke. "We're slowly, in the last couple of games, getting back to a confident level. You can't play perfect football [all the time] and for us, the moment that we're in, we've shown wonderful character this week. I was very satisfied and my overriding feeling was that I was delighted for the players because they're a wonderful group."

Nigel Pearson: "The reality is we're not winning enough games at the moment and you could look at a lot of other sides in the division at the minute who will probably say exactly the same thing," he explained. "It's not about talking about it, it's about going out there and doing it. There's only ourselves that can rectify our own results. [Against QPR] we were very positive and created chances but still couldn't win the game. That's frustrating for us all and I feel for the players because of that."
