Since beating Arsenal 4-0 in the Premier League before the worldwide break, Liverpool has been thrashed 5-0 by Manchester City and drawn 1-1 at home to Burnley in the league, conceded late to draw 2-2 with Sevilla in the Champions League, and has now been eliminated from the League Cup. As the Reds look to get back to winning ways, here's the all-important team news for the visiting side. "We are only one league behind them after 11 years", he said.

"It is a fantastic opportunity for Alex because since he has been (here) it has been hard to train on different things because of game after game after game", Klopp said at his pre-match press conference on Monday. The one outstanding memory of the game last time at the Pirelli was when they brought on (Cristiano) Ronaldo and (Wayne) Rooney after 60 minutes.

Liverpool duo Adam Lallana and Nathaniel Clyne are continuing to make positive steps in their ongoing recoveries from long-term injuries according to Jürgen Klopp.

On Lallana, the German said: "Adam is close to going outside and running".

"You are in a situation with your old club - and I don't say this about Alex specifically - and you accept it and it is hard to make the next step".

All he has to convince boss Klopp is that he is mentally and physically ready to start tearing up Premier League defences again.

Surrounded by her children (only Maddox missed the call), the actress shone and seemed more happy than ever. The actress was accompanied by Zahara (12), Shiloh (11) and nine-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox.


The 24-year-old left Arsenal in a £35 million deal on transfer deadline day but has so far been restricted to just 57 minutes in three substitute appearances, having previously started all four matches for the Gunners and also two for the national team. The Englishman will be joined by Danny Ward and Marko Grujic in the starting lineup on Tuesday.

"It's a fantastic opportunity now for Alex".

Also on Tuesday, Roy Hodgson's Palace play Huddersfield at Selhurst Park after a 1-0 defeat to Southampton saw them become the first Premier League side to lose their first five games and fail to score.

And, as the visitors grew increasingly frustrated with their inability to find the back of the net, Shinji Okazaki fired Leicester in front with a shot that deflected off Andrew Robertson past Danny Ward. It's really good that he's here.

So, if you want to watch all the action from Leicester City vs Liverpool, here's how to live stream the game online.

"I thought it made complete sense for Alex to change club, especially to come here". So far I can see that.
