We could see some rather unusual starting line-ups from Jurgen Klopp and Brendan Rodgers today. Indeed, Liverpool and Leicester may barely be able to fill their benches at Anfield due to an absurd amount of absentees. AFP or licensors Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool host Leicester in the Premier League on Sunday The champions host the league-leaders in what should be a fascinating match, but it’ll be largely makeshift line-ups for both sides – particularly in defence. Both sides could be without almost all of their first-choice back-fours – and for the Reds, the problems don’t stop there. It was an international break from hell for Jurgen Klopp, who almost predicted it by hitting out at the fixture schedule before the players went away. So assuming they don...
