Liverpool face Leicester City in the Premier League on Saturday evening at the newly developed Anfield, with the stadium now capable of holding over 54,000 fans.

The Reds played their first three league games away from home, due to work on the main stand at Anfield not being completed in time.

Both sides will be keen to improve on inconsistent starts to the season as the Reds and the Foxes have won, drawn and lost in their opening three matches of the new Premier League campaign.

Sadio Mane is expected to be fit for Liverpool despite picking up a knock playing for Senegal during the international break, but Ragnar Klavan and Emre Can will both miss out, with knee and ankle injuries respectively.

Daniel Sturridge will be hoping to earn a recall to the Reds’ starting line-up, the 27-year-old was dropped to the bench last time out against Tottenham Hotspur and is yet to net a league goal this season.

Leicester may hand a debut to record signing Islam Slimani, following the striker’s £28 million move from Sporting Lisbon on deadline day.

Slimani is yet to train with his Leicester team-mates due to arriving back late from international duty with Algeria, while goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel is available for selection after recovering from a hernia operation.

The current Premier League champions have failed to win any of their last five games at Anfield, drawing one and losing four, including a 1-0 defeat their last season.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has seen his side concede six goals in the league this season; the joint highest alongside Watford and Stoke.

While, Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has scored six goals in his last seven league outings, including both goals in the Foxes 2-0 victory over the Reds at the King Power stadium last season.
