Liverpool team news: Fabinho is out, and Konate will start against Leicester.


Liverpool’s final 2022 match will be at Anfield against former manager Brendan Rodgers and his 13th-placed Leicester City

Following a 3-2 setback to Manchester City that knocked Jurgen Klopp’s side out of the Carabao Cup, the Merseysiders secured an outstanding triumph over Aston Villa.

New signee Cody Gakpo, of course, will not play, but there is a slim chance that fans will see the club’s £35.4m-£44.3m signing (BBC Sport) in the match against Brentford on January 2.

Alisson Becker is back in goal behind a backline that includes Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip.

The midfield pairing of Thiago Alcantara and Jordan Henderson has been retained, while Fabinho has been replaced by Harvey Elliott.

Darwin Nunez leads the line against the foxes, and he is joined on the wings by Mo Salah and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

A win at L4 would cut the distance to Manchester United in fifth place to one point (pending the Red Devils’ match against Wolves tomorrow).
