Liverpool's Carabao Cup quarter-final win over Leicester City on 23 December at Anfield cemented Jurgen Klopp's dominance over Brendan Rodgers. Klopp has taken 4 wins from 5 matches over his Liverpool predecessor.
Rodgers' only victory came in the most recent Premier League match between these sides back in February thanks to 3 goals in 8 minutes when a goal down deep into the second half. The 3-1 win saw the Foxes jump into second place of the table at the time.

Who will win Leicester vs Liverpool?
Leicester's home form is an issue. In its astonishing Premier League winning 2015/16 season it lost just once at home and claimed 42 points from 19 matches at King Power Stadium.
It managed 37 points at home in 2019/20, the first full season under Rodgers' watch before just 28 last campaign with 9 wins, 1 draw and 9 losses from its 19 home fixtures. Things don't look any brighter so far this year with 4 wins, a draw and 3 losses from 8 outings at home.
Liverpool's 2 goals in its draw against Tottenham last outing made it 50 goals for the Reds after 18 games this season. That's the fewest games the club has ever needed to reach the mark. Captain Jordan Henderson should also be available to return for this game, with star defender Virgil van Dijk an outside chance to return after battling coronavirus.
We expect the good times to roll on for Klopp and his team. Liverpool 3-1.
