In the upcoming Round 36 of the highly-anticipated Premier League, the match between Leicester City and Liverpool is set to take place at the majestic King Power Stadium.
The current Premier League standings indicate that Leicester City is struggling to maintain its footing, as they are currently occupying the seventeenth position, having managed to secure only eight wins out of thirty-five matches played. Following a demoralizing defeat against Fulham, Leicester has only narrowly avoided slipping into the bottom three due to goal differential.
In sharp contrast, Liverpool is currently sitting comfortably in the fifth position on the Premier League table, with only a single point separating them from the fourth-place team. Their recent Premier League clash with Brentford proved to be a moment of glory for the Reds, as Salah netted the game's only goal, securing a well-deserved victory for Liverpool. The top bookmakers in India have fantastic Premier League odds with them.
The Foxes will be without the services of two critical players, Kelechi Iheanacho and Jannik Vestergaard, which will undoubtedly pose a challenge for Coach Smith. Adding to their woes, Ryan Bertrand is also questionable to take the field against Liverpool.
Furthermore, the recent loss against Fulham has left Leicester City precariously placed in the Premier League standings, with their goal differential barely keeping them out of the relegation zone. Despite occupying the seventeenth position on the table, two teams below them, namely Nottingham Forest and Everton, have a game in hand over Smith's squad, making every point crucial for the Foxes.
Jonny Evans could return against Liverpool.
Predicted Lineup: Iversen, Castagne, Faes, Thomas, Soyuncu, Soumare, Tielemans, Tete, Maddison, Barnes, Vardy
Liverpool's hopes of securing a victory over Leicester City have been dealt a blow, as their star midfielder Thiago Alcantara has been ruled out of the match due to a hip injury. Adding to their woes, they will also miss the services of Calvin Ramsay, Stefan Bajcetic, Naby Keita, and Roberto Firmino, who remain unavailable for selection.
Despite these setbacks, Liverpool is in a strong position in the Premier League table, sitting just one point behind the fourth-placed team, despite having played two more games than their arch-rivals Manchester United. Every match is crucial for the Reds, who will undoubtedly be looking to secure a vital victory against the Foxes to boost their chances of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League.
Tsimikas is to start in defense for Liverpool.
Predicted Lineup: Alisson, Fabinho, Henderson, Jones, Diaz, Salah, Nunez, Alexander-Arnold, Konate, Van Dijk, Tsimikas

With the dynamic duo of Darwin Nunez and Mohamed Salah, the Reds possess a lethal attacking prowess that can dismantle any opposition. Leicester, on the other hand, possesses the potential to pack a powerful punch on their finest days, having sprung several jaw-dropping surprises this season. Nonetheless, it is undeniable that Liverpool boasts a superior squad, equipped with remarkable talent and tactical prowess, making them the clear favorites to emerge victorious in this exhilarating clash.
