Liverpool confirmed line-up v Leicester: 26-year-old axed
By Amir Mir
Liverpool have made one change to their side as they take on Leicester City in a Premier League clash on Monday night at the King Power.
Jurgen Klopp’s men picked up a 2-0 win from their last fixture on February 11 when they beat Tottenham 2-0 at Anfield.
Now, the German has opted to bring in Emre Can for Jordan Henderson as they look to secure a much-needed three points in their fight to clinch a Champions League place at the end of the season.
Midfielder Henderson, 26, has been ruled out of the evening game because of a foot injury.
Here is the club’s official Twitter account announcing the Reds starting XI to face Leicester:

A win at the Premier League champions would see Klopp’s side move into third place in the table, leapfrogging Manchester City and Arsenal, who did not play at the weekend.
The Merseyside club take on a Foxes team that have struggled since their spectacular PL triumph last season.
They sacked title winning manager Claudio Ranieri earlier on in the week, a decision which was lambasted by supporters and former players.
At this moment in time, the managerless club sit in the bottom three after Crystal Palace’s 1-0 win over Middlesbrough on Saturday afternoon dropped them into the relegation zone.
