Having seen their Premier League title challenge suffer a setback on Sunday, Liverpool must now quickly refocus on another potential route to silverware when Leicester come to town in midweek.

The dust has barely settled on the eventful 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend, a result which ended Liverpool’s eight-match winning streak across all competitions and saw them fall three points adrift of leaders Manchester City.

In truth, Jurgen Klopp may have been content with the result given that Spurs created a string of clear chances and that Liverpool ended the game with 10 men, but the German was far from happy about a number of other matters.

Klopp vented his fury at referee Paul Tierney following a number of questionable calls, and also insisted that it would be “impossible” for his side to fulfil a festive fixture schedule which sees them play eight times in December while trying to contend with depleting numbers due to coronavirus.

Four players have already tested positive from Liverpool and, while they have not yet crossed the threshold to qualify for a match to be postponed, coupled with their growing injury list it did leave Klopp warning that he may have enough players to play in one game, but that he does not have enough to play four games in 10 days.

Liverpool and Chelsea are the only teams to have played all of their scheduled Premier League games as well as playing in Europe and reaching the EFL Cup quarter-finals, so understandably neither would have been too pleased by the news that the Premier League and EFL have both decided to press ahead with the fixture schedule as planned.

Klopp may not go to the extremes of that last EFL Cup quarter-final against Aston Villa, when Liverpool named their youngest ever side, but his suggestion that Liverpool would be unable to fulfil the fixture schedule suggests that he could make as many changes as possible for this game.

The only thing which could prevent him from doing the full XI is a lack of options in midfield especially, with up to five players missing in that area of the pitch.

Thiago Alcantara has joined Fabinho and Curtis Jones in testing positive for coronavirus, while Harvey Elliott remains sidelined by a serious ankle injury.

Jordan Henderson was ruled out of the Tottenham game due to a non-COVID related illness and is a doubt for this game too, with Klopp unlikely to take any risks over his captain.

Tyler Morton and James Milner could both therefore start again, while Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will be pushing for a return to the starting XI too.

Andrew Robertson will serve his suspension following his red card against Spurs, opening the door for Kostas Tsimikas at left-back, while Virgil van Dijk remains in isolation after his own positive COVID test.

Nat Phillips and Adrian are also absent, while Divock Origi is still absent due to a knee injury.

Fringe players such as Neco WilliamsJoe GomezCaoimhin Kelleher and Takumi Minamino should come into the side, with the latter having scored five goals in his four League Cup outings.

There could also be another start for 17-year-old Kaide Gordon, while Klopp may see the game as a good opportunity to hand fit-again Roberto Firmino his first start since October.

Leicester’s list of absentees could be even longer than Liverpool’s, although it remains unclear just how badly their coronavirus outbreak continues to affect them after missing their last two games.

Reports suggest that Jannik VestergaardAyoze PerezAdemola LookmanKelechi IheanachoFilip BenkovicHamza Choudhury and Vontae Daley-Campbell are among the players to have tested positive, meaning that all of them could miss out in midweek.

That COVID crisis comes in the midst of an injury-induced shortage as well, and regardless of who misses out due to the virus, Leicester will be severely depleted in defence.

Injuries to both Caglar Soyuncu and Jonny Evans against Newcastle, in addition to the continued absence of Wesley Fofana, mean that Rodgers could be forced to field a makeshift centre-back pairing of Daniel Amartey and Wilfred Ndidi.

Wednesday’s match is also likely to come too soon for James Justin, meaning that Rodgers could be without as many as 11 players.

Liverpool possible starting lineup:
Kelleher; Williams, Gomez, Konate, Tsimikas; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Morton, Milner; Gordon, Firmino, Minamino

Leicester City possible starting lineup:
Schmeichel; Albrighton, Amartey, Ndidi, Bertrand; Tielemans, Soumare; Maddison, Dewsbury-Hall, Barnes; Daka
