It's been a tough first half of the season for the Reds, but they can head into 2022 on the right track with another victory. Leicester, meanwhile, looked to be improving last month only to be hammered 3-0 by oil-rich Newcastle in their first game back after the World Cup break.
Leicester have a good recent record against Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers will know another victory over his former club will reduce the mounting pressure on his job.

Liverpool vs Leicester team news
Liverpool will have Ibrahima Konate back in their squad after an extended break after the World Cup, otherwise it is a case of as you were for Jurgen Klopp.
Both James Milner, Curtis Jones and Roberto Firmino hope to be back early in the new year, while Luis Diaz, Diogo Jota and Arthur are longer-term absentees. Incoming new signing Cody Gakpo will be ineligible to play.
Leicester will again be without James Maddison, who continues to struggle with a knee injury despite going to the World Cup and is in London seeing a specialist. Dennis Praet is nursing a back complaint.
Liverpool vs Leicester prediction
Liverpool could - and should - have beaten Aston Villa by a bigger scoreline than 3-1, only for Darwin Nunez to miss a hatful of chances. I can’t see that happening again - well, maybe the Nunez bit I can - so this should be another straightforward victory.
Leicester look desperate at the moment and heading to Anfield is arguably the second-toughest fixture of the season for most teams - after away at the Etihad. A big January awaits.
Liverpool to win 3-0.
