It’s 11th v 20th in the Premier League tomorrow night as Leicester host Liverpool at the King Power Stadium.

Liverpool managed an unconvincing win over Stoke on Saturday courtesy of a Glen Johnson header with this victory ending a run of three straight Premier League defeats.

Club captain Steven Gerrard was benched on the 16th anniversary of his Liverpool debut but the midfielder looks set to start against the Foxes after being offered a new deal by the Merseyside club.

Leicester on the other hand have found it hard to get a real run of form going since their monumental achievement of beating Manchester United 5-3. The Foxes have picked up only two points from eight matches since.

Are the Reds favourites?

Liverpool have endured an awful start to the season on the back of some poor results following the departure of the star striker Luis Suarez and the lengthy injury of striker Daniel Sturridge.

They go into match day 14 as firm favourites though, facing the most out of form team in the Premier League, in Leicester City, who sit at the bottom on 10 points.

A win for the Reds could see them enter the top half of the table into eighth, if other results go their way. Whereas a win for the newly promoted Leicester could see them escape from the relegation zone and really kick start their season.

Injury news

Leicester seem to have a fully fit fit side going into the match - that’s an advantage they have enjoyed for most of the season to no avail. The only absentees are summer signing Matthew Upson, who has still yet to play for the Foxes, and central midfielder Dean Hammond.

Liverpool have not been as lucky this season with regards to injuries. They have missed the goals of Sturridge for most of the season.

The England international is ruled out with a thigh injury and £16million summer signing Mario Balotelli is still sidelined with a hamstring problem. Mamadou Sakho remains on the injury list with a thigh injury along with right back Jon Flanagan.

Predicted Lineups

Leicester: Schmeichel; Konchesky; Morgan; Wasilewski; De Laet; Schlupp; Cambiasso; James; Mahrez; Ulloa; Vardy.

Liverpool: Mignolet; Enrique; Toure; Skrtel; Johnson; Henderson; Gerrard; Lallana; Coutinho; Sterling; Lambert.
