Liverpool will be without Roberto Firmino and Naby Keita as they take on Leicester City in the Premier League this evening. The Brazilian forward will miss the game due to injury, while Keita has not featured for the Reds since February’s goalless draw with Crystal Palace. Both players are out of contract at the end of the season, with Firmino’s Anfield future uncertain.

The absence of Firmino and Keita is a blow for Liverpool, who are chasing a top-four finish. The Reds have had a difficult season, with injuries to key players and a dip in form affecting their performances. They currently sit sixth in the Premier League table, five points behind fourth-placed Newcastle United.



Liverpool will be looking to extend their winning run to seven games as they take on Leicester City at the King Power Stadium. The Foxes have had a mixed season, with former Reds manager Brendan Rodgers being sacked last month and replaced by Dean Smith. The new manager faces the task of keeping Leicester in the top-flight, and will be hoping for a positive result against Liverpool.


Long-term absentees Thiago, Stefan Bajcetic, and Calvin Ramsay will also be out of the squad indefinitely. Klopp will be hoping that Diogo Jota, who was a doubt for the previous game against Brentford due to a rib injury, will be fit enough to feature against Leicester.




Despite the absence of Firmino and Keita, Klopp remains hopeful that the Brazilian forward will be fit enough to feature in the final home game of the season against Aston Villa. “I saw Bobby in training yesterday and it looks like pretty much [he is] nearly there, but I don’t think he will be in for the weekend,” Klopp said. “If I go out of here and he will be in the session, I would be surprised. I assume that we start with him team training-wise after the Leicester game. And Naby, no.”

Overall, Liverpool will be hoping to secure three points against Leicester City to keep their hopes of a top-four finish alive. Klopp will be looking to his remaining squad to step up and deliver a positive result.
