Liverpool welcome Leicester and former Reds coach Brendan Rodgers to Anfield in the Premier League this evening as both teams look to make a statement in what is becoming a competitive, unpredictable title race.Jurgen Klopp’s side will regain top spot if they can emerge victorious from this test, while a win for Leicester would send them second on goal difference – or even to the summit, if they can stun the champions by a wide enough margin.In their last outing, before the international break, Liverpool fought to a 1-1 draw with Manchester City, while Leicester were 1-0 winners against an inconsistent Wolves outfit. But form could go out the window in what is set to be an entertaining battle, full of attacking football between the fourth-placed Reds and third-placed visitors on the champions’ turf tonight. Follow all the action below at the conclusion of Leeds vs Arsenal:1606071727Michael Jones22 November 2020 19:021606071460It’s an interesting starting line up from Jurgen Klopp as he is without Mo Salah, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Virgil van Dijk but will it be enough to overcome a Leicester side who are unbeaten away from home this season?Michael Jones22 November 2020 18:571606071076In the final Premier League game of the day Liverpool host Leceister at Anfield. Here’s a reminder of the teams: Liverpool XI: Alisson, Milner, Fabinho, Matip, Robertson, Wijnaldum, Keita, Jones, Jota, Mane, Firmino  Leicester XI: Schmeichel, Albrighton, Fofana, Evans, Fuchs, Justin, Mendy, Tielemans, Barnes, Maddison, VardyMichael Jones22 November 2020 18:511606070903Michael Jones22 November 2020 18:481606070789Reaction from Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa who told Sky Sports: 

“The result could have been in our favour, the performance was satisfactory, 11 v 11 we played well, with a man advantage we were more dangerous, it was a steady and valuable performance throughout.”We missed a lot of chances, we arrived in different ways and I think there were three shots that hit the post. The accuracy wasn’t the necessary one.”It is not more difficult, it is easier (to play against 10 men).”Michael Jones22 November 2020 18:461606069994Michael Jones22 November 2020 18:331606069553Michael Jones22 November 2020 18:251606069393Leeds 0 – 0 Arsenal90 5 mins: Full time. That’s a really good point for Arsenal. Down to 10-men after 55 minutes, not much of a threat on goal throughout and Leeds hitting every part of the woodwork without finding a way through. Marcelo Bielsa will feel his side have let two points slip through their fingers in this one. Michael Jones22 November 2020 18:231606069164Leeds 0 – 0 Arsenal90 3 mins: Bukayo Saka looks in a bit of bother. He came on as a substitute and now limps off the pitch. Ainsley Maitland-Niles replaces him for the last couple of minutes. Michael Jones22 November 2020 18:191606069052Leeds 0 – 0 Arsenal90 mins: Five added minutes to play at Elland Road. It’s still anyone’s game. Poveda’s shot is blocked by Gabriel but Klich pounces on the rebound and hits it over the bar. Michael Jones22 November 2020 18:17Independent football newsletterThe latest football headlines direct to your inbox twice a week
