Liverpool vs Leicester: chelsea vs stoke, What time does it start, live goal update

Liverpool enter the game in good form after beating Swansea 5-0 in the week, though Jurgen Klopp’s side have failed to win two on the bounce since beating Brighton
in early December with draws against Everton, West Brom and Arsenal halting their advances in the table.
Leicester’s promising winter form that saw them win four games in a row, with away victories against Newcastle and Southampton, seems to have dissipated after
confidence shattering losses to Crystal Palace and Watford. Puel will be eager to see his side leave Anfield with a share of the spoils against a side that leave
themselves exposed at the back. The pace of Jamie Vardy, Demarai Gray and Riyad Mahrez will be a key feature in the game.
Claude Puel is still without Robert Huth and Matty James, though the pair are thought to be nearing a return to action. Signed too late to be eligible to play the
first half of the season, Sporting Lisbon midfielder Adrien Silva will complete his move to Leicester once the January window opens, a boost for the side heading
into a hectic fixture list in the New Year.
