Liverpool face an interesting end to the year as they prepare for a key clash against Leicester City on Tuesday night, before sitting back to watch the performances of title-rivals Man City and Chelsea the next day.
Log-leading Man City currently enjoy a six-point lead over Liverpool and Chelsea but the Reds are comforted by a game in hand.
It continues to look like a certain three-way race for the title next year, but there are some compelling match ups set to take place before the curtain comes down on a challenging 2021.
City’s late demolition of Leicester and Chelsea’s draw on their travels to Aston Villa have certainly shifted the views on which team might just be able to topple the current table toppers.
Attention on Liverpool’s encounter against Leicester on Tuesday will centre around who Jurgen Klopp will have at his disposal for the fixture. Klopp will be delighted to have Thiago Alcantara back in training along with Virgil van Dijk, Fabinho and Curtis Jones.
The Foxes dropped to 10th place on the standings following their defeat to City, but still pose a significant threat; any team that can score 3 goals in 10 minutes against City’s defence should be lined up against with caution.
The Reds will also be keeping a close eye on the Chelsea-Brighton and Man City-Brentford matches on Wednesday, 29 December. After that, all the focus will shift to the blockbuster battle between the Reds and Blues on 2 January.
