- Leicester City entertain Liverpool at King Power Stadium on Tuesday (8pm GMT kick-off)
- Striker Kelechi Iheanacho believes the Foxes can approach the fixture with confidence
- The Nigerian netted for City in a 6-3 loss at Manchester City on Boxing Day
- Despite defensive issues, Leicester's attacking record is impressive ahead of the clash
City were denied a famous victory at Anfield in the quarter-finals of the Carabao Cup by Takumi Minamino's added-time equaliser before that 3-3 draw was followed by a 5-4 penalty shootout defeat last Wednesday. The Reds, though, visit the East Midlands on Tuesday in the Premier League.
Iheanacho, who scored for the injury-hit Foxes in a 6-3 reverse at champions Manchester City on Boxing Day, says he and his team-mates are excited to lock horns with Jürgen Klopp's side so quickly after their last meeting. The Nigerian is confidence that familiarity could help Leicester on the night.
"We’re looking forward to it," City's No.14 told LCFC TV. "We played them in the cup and it obviously was a good game, but we lost. We’re hoping to do better in the Premier League and get something out of the game.
Iheanacho Looking Forward To Liverpool Contest
Speaking to LCFC TV, Kelechi Iheanacho looks ahead to a second meeting with Liverpool in six days, this time in the Premier League.
"When you play a team like them, you know how they play, you know about the players, and you know how to hurt them as well, how to attack them. We know about how they play and hopefully we give them a game.
"We put in a good performance at Anfield and we’re hoping to repeat that at King Power Stadium. Hopefully we’ll do that."
City Score Three At Anfield
All of the goals from Leicester City's 3-3 draw with Liverpool in the Carabao Cup Quarter-Finals.
Leicester registered a 3-1 home success over Liverpool last term and, while defensive injuries mount at the Club, Iheanacho has been buoyed by their attacking exploits. The Foxes have scored 10 goals in their last three outings in all competitions.
"When you play them and you beat them and they come back again, obviously you have a great confidence," he added. "They’re a good side, so you need to come out strong. You need to finish well. We’ll be ready. Getting a goal (vs. Man City) gives me confidence in the next game. Hopefully there’s more to come.
"Attacking-wise, we’ve been great and we need more of that. We need to create more chances and score more goals. It’ll be great to finish the year at home and it was a good year. Hopefully we’ll finish well at home and get the points we need."
