Liverpool's Jurgen Klopp praises Claude Puel for making Leicester City more efficient

Mohamed Salah

Klopp continued: "We aware of their development but we still want to win the game". However, the Merseysiders would have to do without the Dutchman when Leicester City visit Anfield on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the club will be handed a boost by the arrival of defender Virgil van Dijk from Southampton.

Jamie Vardy has six goals to his name against the Merseysiders and having scored against Manchester United just before Christmas, the former Fleetwood Town man is valued at (2.87) to score anytime against another big gun.

In team news Liverpool will be without Jordan Henderson until February after he suffered a hamstring injury against Arsenal.

Liverpool have scored 46 goals in 20 league games at the rate of 2.3 goals/game.

Manager Jurgen Klopp will be pleased with how his team has finished off the year after dispatching Swansea City 5-0.

If any side in the Premier League has dominated Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool, it has been Leicester.

For Leicester, Robert Huth is the only player whose long-term fitness rules him out but a suspension to Daniel Amartey gives Puel a problem at right back.

Leceister City are now in 8th place on the table, having won four of their last seven league matches.

The last three Premier League meetings between these two sides have produced 14 goals.

Leicester have been going relatively well under Claude Puel since he took over at the King Power Stadium but the Foxes are winless in their last three league games and could be leapfrogged by Everton and Watford if results don't go their way.

And Klopp believes that the 2015-16 league champions remain risky in the characteristics facets of their game, hailing their "unbelievable" counter-attacking.

Leicester always work hard for their points, but could be in for a tough afternoon at Anfield against a side buoyed by the news of a top class centre-back joining them next week when the transfer window opens.
