Is Liverpool vs Leicester on TV tonight? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Premier League fixture

Liverpool will move within two points of the top four with victory over Leicester City

Klopp on ‘big’ signing Cody Gakpo and January transfer window

Cody Gakpo will get a first-hand look at his new teammates this evening after signing for Liverpool from PSV Eindhoven earlier this week. The Reds play host to Leicester City in the Premier League tonight and will want to impress their new addition who is not yet eligible to play.

Jurgen Klopp’s men continue their push towards the top four and come into the match in sixth place five points behind Tottenham (4th) but 15 away from the Premier League leaders Arsenal. Liverpool resumed their league campaign with a comfortable, if not entirely dominant, 3-1 win away at Aston Villa and are aiming to secure their fourth consecutive league victory.

Four wins from five matches before the World Cup break saw Leicester open up a four-point gap on the relegation zone but Brendan Rodgers’ men toiled last time out when they were hammered 3-0 by Newcastle. James Maddison continues to recover from a knee injury which means the Foxes are without their most creative player in midfield and could struggle to contain Liverpool at Anfield this evening.

Follow all the action from the Premier League as Liverpool host Leicester City:

10 mins: Trent Alexander-Arnold looks hungry to get forward on the right wing.

A quick one-two with Harvey Elliott allows him space to whip in a cross but Daniel Amartey squeezes in front of Darwin Nunez and turns the ball behind for a corner that the Foxes then defend easily enough.
