As the festive period progresses, Liverpool look to maintain their good form against Leicester City on Friday as the Foxes pick up the pieces after a 3-0 loss to Newcastle United. The Reds are racing forward as they chase a Champions League place and will soon have Dutch striker Cody Gakpo to add to their attack when the winter transfer window opens on January 1. But for now, Liverpool should have more than enough to see a Leicester City side likely to be without James Maddison and have been on a downward spiral in the Premier League this season.

Here are our scenarios, how you can watch the game and more:

Scenarios

Liverpool: Still without various members of the first-team attack, Liverpool will once again need Mohamed Salah to work their magic. With a goal and an assist in their win over Aston Villa, Salah is back to his best form at just the right time for the team. Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota and Curtis Jones will all be absent, along with James Milner and Artur Melo. But with first-team midfielder and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain back in action, Liverpool should have plenty of firepower to defeat Leicester.

The City of Leicester: Before the World Cup break it looked like the Foxes were turning things around with three wins in which they hadn’t allowed a single goal, but a month can make a huge difference, especially with the return to action seeing the team have neither Maddison nor James Justin. The latter could return in the new year, but there’s no set date for Maddison to get back into action, which puts quite a bit of pressure on Harvey Barnes and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall to be creative pivots in the offensive. Luckily for Brendan Rodgers, the Foxes sit 13th in the league. Just four points from the relegation zone, their fortunes could change quickly if they are unable to deliver results.

Prediction

Salah will continue his run with goals in back-to-back games as Liverpool’s attack snag a twisting number at Leicester City. Take: Liverpool 3, Leicester 1
