It's the second meeting in a week between the Premier League champions of 2015-16 and the 18-times champions of England. On Tuesday night in the Carabao Cup.

Leicester City and Liverpool meet in the Premier League just four days after an EFL Cup encounter.

Goals from Shinji Okazaki and Islam Slimani knocked an off-colour Reds side out of the cup competition as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain endured a full debut to forget.

It was a third home win on the trot for the Foxes over Liverpool and Jamie Vardy is expected to be fit after skipping the midweek cup clash amid a defensive crisis for the visitors.

Team News 

Leicester City 

Leicester gave groin-troubled Vardy the night off in the Carabao Cup but he is likely to start on Saturday evening if he passes a fitness test. 

Two other regular squad members, Christian Fuchs and Leonardo Ulloa, have also been monitored during the week and given the all clear though Ben Chilwell may stiill deputise for the Austria left-back and Ulloa's place on the bench is no longer assured now that Kelechi Iheanacho is match fit and Slimani and Okazaki made the difference on Tuesday night. 

Vicente Iborra hurt his groin on Tuesday and may have to sit the return if Liverpool out while Matt James is out for the rest of October with an achilles injury and Robert Huth's ankle problem has kept him sidelined since the summer and there has been no date fixed for his return.

Liverpool 

Dejan Lovren is unlikely to make it back to play at centre-half having withdrawn from the last two line-ups with a bck injury. 

He has not been able to train all week and Joel Matip, Jürgen Klopp's other default selection, did not play in the Carabao Cup after sustaining a knock during the draw with Burnely. 

He is far more likely to make it.

Emre Can played the 90 minutes against Burnley but missed out on the squad for midweek after also suffering some bruising. 

He is in Saturday's squad and Klopp's plans. The main question, though, is whether he will start Philippe Coutinho and if he does, how long will he give him. 

England internationals Nathaniel Clyne and Adam Lallana continue to be long-term absentees and also missing will be Sadio Mané who is serving the last match of this three-game suspension for the red car he received at the Etihad.
