​Liverpool manager Klopp: Leicester clash completely different to midweek debacle

Jurgen Klopp believes Liverpool's meeting with Leicester City will not resemble Tuesday's Carabao Cup fixture between the two side.

The Reds lost 1-0 to City at the King Power and will have to travel there again on Saturday.

But with Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez back in Craig Shakespeare's side, Klopp reckons the game will be completely different from the midweek clash.

"I think both teams will not think too much about this game because there will be different line-ups for sure, on both sides obviously," the manager said at Thursday's press conference.

"I think Leicester has a typical style of play. They couldn't play like this [on Tuesday] because Jamie Vardy is a pretty key player for this kind of play and also Mahrez is a key player for this.

"Both were not involved so that means it was different, but we know of course how Leicester play usually.

"A lot of things will be the same and a few things will be different. It's all about being really quick and after they win the ball they are really quick and pass it in behind. They go for set-pieces, Fuchs will be back probably so that means throw-ins are back in the game and all that stuff.

"So we know about it. We did well in games and we did not so good in games against these things."
