Liverpool are unbeaten in eight home Premier League matches against Leicester City (W6 D2 L0) since losing 0-2 in May 2000.

Liverpool’s current run of 16 consecutive Premier League victories is the second-longest ever in English top-flight history, bettered only by Manchester City between August-December 2017 (18).

Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 43 home league games (W33 D10) – the longest current run in the top five European leagues, and Liverpool’s second-longest ever in top-flight history. Their previous best of 63 between February 1978-December 1980 was eventually ended by Leicester.

Since Brendan Rodgers was appointed Leicester manager, only Liverpool (49) and Manchester City (46) have won more Premier League points than the Foxes (31).

Leicester have lost 11 of their last 13 Premier League games against sides starting the day top of the table (D2), with their last such victory coming away against Manchester United in January 1998.
This is Brendan Rodgers’ first return to Anfield since leaving Liverpool in October 2015. Only one manager to have previously managed the Reds in the Premier League has won away against them in the competition – Roy Hodgson in April 2012 with West Brom (W1 D3 L9).
