Summer signing Castagne is continuing his rehabilitation from a hamstring issue.

Speaking to the media on Friday, manager Brendan Rodgers said: "Timothy Castagne's back in again, which is great news, and Wesley Fofana will be fine, so we’re slowly starting to get our players back. Ricardo [Pereira’s] in training with the group, which is great news, and he’ll most probably play in a reserve game next week. He’s progressing really well. Wilf [Ndidi] is out on the field. He still has a number of weeks to go, but he’s progressing well. [Çağlar] Söyüncü, likewise, is maybe a few weeks away, but training with the squad."

James Maddison celebrates levelling the scores at Anfield.

Late penalty drama sealed a narrow 2-1 victory for Liverpool on the last occasion in which Liverpool hosted Leicester City at Anfield, on Saturday 5 October, 2019.

Sadio Mané gave the Reds a lead at the break, but as the Foxes grew into the game they started to threaten more and, in the 80th minute, James Maddison's stylish finish restored parity on the scoresheet.

However, with seconds to spare, Liverpool were awarded a penalty, duly dispatched by James Milner in the fifth minute of additional time on Merseyside. That defeat, however, did spark an eight-game winning run for Leicester.
