Leicester City vs. Liverpool: Premier League – Match Preview

Leicester City’s first match since sacking Claudio Ranieri is a home fixture with Liverpool on Monday evening.

The Foxes dismissed Ranieri just nine months after he masterminded the most incredible of title successes.

His last game in charge was a 2-1 last 16 Champions League first leg defeat away to Sevilla.

Liverpool haven’t had a fixture in a fortnight, since a 2-0 win at home to a disappointing Tottenham.

Two goals from Sadio Mane helped Liverpool to an easy and much needed win.
