Livestream: Liverpool vs Leicester City

Starting on December 22, 2021, at 19:45 UTC, Liverpool will face Leicester City at Anfield stadium in Liverpool, England. The match is part of the English Football League Cup. Liverpool welcome Leicester City to Anfield in the EFL Cup quarter-finals on Wednesday night, the first of two meetings between the two sides in a week, despite the fear of coronavirus looming over both clubs.

Brendan Rodgers faces his former team after Leicester was forced to take a 10-day break due to a COVID-19 epidemic, while Liverpool is in the middle of a four-game stretch in ten days. After suffering a setback in their Premier League title bid on Sunday, Liverpool must now immediately refocus on another possible route to silverware when Leicester visit in midweek.

The dust has hardly settled on Liverpool’s tense 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend, which snapped the Reds’ eight-match winning streak in all competitions and dropped them three points behind Manchester City.

In actuality, Jurgen Klopp may have been satisfied with the result, given that Spurs created a slew of clear chances and Liverpool finished with ten men, but he was not pleased with a lot of other aspects of the game.

Klopp was enraged with referee Paul Tierney after a series of questionable decisions, and he claimed it would be “difficult” for his team to complete a Christmas fixture calendar that sees them play eight times in December while dealing with coronavirus-related depletion. Liverpool has now had four players test positive, and while they have not yet reached the threshold to have a match postponed, their mounting injury list has left Klopp warning that while he may have enough players to play in one game, he does not have enough to play four games in ten days.
