The Reds would hope to put up an amazing show at home as they welcome visitors Leicester City at home.
The match could be arguably the star game of the Carabao Quarter – final clash as the Anfield arena erupt ahead of this match.
Both sides are fond of each other especially with Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers having managed the Reds in the past.
As the match draws closer by the minutes, Isagoal.com reveals some of the key battles to envisage ahead of this crucial match.
Joe Gomez – Jamie Vardy
Both English stars would compete in a clash that is of high international relevance to the three lions of England’s agenda in the days ahead.
While Gareth Southgate could grace the occasion to see how it happens between these two opposition players in this contest.
But the big gist is can the injury returning Joe Gomez stop the ever pacy and goal-scoring Jamie Vardy in this match?
Your guess is as good as mine as we look forward to a cracker of a battle between both Premier League parties.
Naby Keita – Wilfred Ndidi
The battle here would be an African Cup of Nations duel as both players square up against each other.
Both players are great ambassadors of African football from all perspectives and they would want to enhance their reputation with a decent shift in this contest.
Whereas Ndidi is the one with a greater task to deal with ahead of the game as Naby possess a fine touch of class on the ball.
And that quality can lure any opposition into committing rash challenges, especially in a hot match setting like we expect to see here.
Roberto Firmino – Jonny Evans
The home side would be pleased to welcome Firmino back into the Liverpool side. But can he unsettle the Leicester Captain who can boast of massive experience at this level?
Though it’s expected to be a tough one between both players but Firmino has got the Brazilian flair to navigate his way up front.
And that should be a source of concern for Evans and his positional partners as they must keep an eye on him to stand a chance in this all-important EFL Cup clash at Anfield.
