Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is well aware of the Leicester City threat as his side prepare for the visit to the King Power Stadium.

Liverpool are expected to make it four wins in four games on Saturday, having won their first three with relative ease.

They brushed aside London outfits West Ham United (4-0) and Crystal Palace (2-0) before earning a 1-0 victory against Brighton and Hove Albion.

However, as easy as it may have been for Liverpool till now, Klopp isn’t ready to sit back and relax on his chaise longue ahead of the encounter against Leicester.

"“They really have a good side” he said.“So in a situation like that people talk up the Champions League draw, we all talk about the same clubs and when the next matchday is – but there are really good football teams and Leicester looked to me really good in these first three games.“The message will be we are ready and we were ready so far for all these games, that’s the message, but that doesn’t mean anything.“We want to win that game, you can imagine that, but I can’t be sure in the moment it will happen.“That’s it, but we will still try to do it at Leicester with all the things we know about them.“We know yes it’s possible but it will be really difficult.”"

Of the Reds’ next five fixtures, three are against Tottenham Hotspur (A), Chelsea (A) and Manchester City (H), meaning that they would see the  against Leicester as one that they really have to win.

That makes it all the more difficult for Claude Puel’s side, who would themselves want to get at least a point tomorrow to go into the international break with smiles on their face. Picking the right XI would be a good way to achieve that.

Puel has been making some questionable selections this season, the most strange of which is Daniel Amartey. He has twice started as the right-back with Ricardo Pereira further up the wing, and on both the occasions, the result hasn’t been impressive at all.

Amartey won’t be third time lucky, not against Sadio Mane anyway. The Senegal international has already netted thrice in the Premier League, and if Puel doesn’t learn his lesson, that tally would only be added to.
