Follow live coverage as Leicester City face Liverpool in the Premier League today.

A six-match win streak has lifted the Reds back into contention for a top-four finish despite a largely dismal season, but Jurgen Klopp’s team must continue to win and hope Newcastle or Man United drop more points in their final fixtures.

Dean Smith has not yet had the big impact hoped for since he replaced Brendan Rodgers and Leicester are two points from safety with three games to play including this one - though they have a better goal difference than Leeds, Everton and Nottingham Forest, which could yet prove important.

We will bring you all the action and updates from today's game in the live blog below:

For Dean Smith, it is another disaster to face. His side remain mired in the bottom three, only above relegated Southampton. They are a point off Leeds, two off Everton and four off Nottingham Forest. They will likely need two wins from two now.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

21:58

It's the result Liverpool needed to keep pressure on the top four, with the Reds now just a point behind Manchester United. Both the Red Devils and Newcastle have games in hand, but if they slip up, Jurgen Klopp will be ready to pounce.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

21:56

A Trent Alexander-Arnold rocket seals the deal, as Liverpool run out Premier League victors over Leicester. Curtis Jones did the damage with a first-half double to put the Reds on top, and the Foxes never had a serious sniff afterwards. Full-time at the King Power Stadium, it finishes Leicester City 0-3 Liverpool.

Tielemans snaps a free-kick off a Jota foul now. The Portuguese is still muttering at the referee.

How has Salah missed that?! He doesn't blow those chances often, as he flicks a one-on-one opportunity wide of the mark with just the keeper to beat. A rare occasion indeed.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

21:37

Jota dislodges Leicester of possession inside their own box but is done for a foul by the officials. He is not happy with the call.

21:35

Liverpool make their first change now, bringing on Jota for Diaz.

Dangerous territory for Leicester now, as they concede a free-kick close to the box. This is prime set-piece territory.

Dean Smith looks to be poised for some alterations. The question is whether that fresh blood can help or not.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

21:22

The King Power Stadium is back in fine voice now. They won't go down without a fight in the crowd, which is always heartening for the side on the pitch.

Substitution Harvey Lewis Barnes Mateus Cardoso Lemos Martins

Vardy has scored eight goals against Liverpool in the Premier League, with only Andrew Cole (11) and Harry Kane (9) netting more against them in the competition. Leicester may need his touch here.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

21:15

There's more bite from Dean Smith's men. There had to be, of course. If they fold and ship another three goals, it could do untold damage in an already precarious situation.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

21:15

Maddison wastes no time chasing an immediate response and forces a save from Alisson. That perks up an otherwise desolate home crowd.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

21:14

Leicester promptly undo that effort with Pereira picking up the first booking of the game for a needless tug on Jones. Salah blazes over moments later.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

21:14

That's got the crowd on their feet! Out of nowhere, Barnes drags a deft shot towards the far top corner and Alisson is forced to full-stretch in order to stop it.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

21:07

We're back underway for the second half at the King Power Stadium. Will there be a change of fortunes for the Foxes this time around?

Salah has scored 19 Premier League goals this season; having reached 20+ league goals in four of his first five seasons with Liverpool, including both of his last two. Is another one in store?

A Curtis Jones double has put Liverpool in the box seat for a Premier League victory against Leicester at the King Power Stadium. It's a long way back for the Foxes now, but they have to believe. At half-time, it is Leicester City 0-2 Liverpool.

20:52

HALF-TIME: LEICESTER CITY 0-2 LIVERPOOL

Liverpool continue to pepper the Leicester box. Faes in particular looks to be feeling the pressure of handling so many red shirts around him.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

20:48

There will be four added minutes in this first half.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

20:48

Salah sees a shot blocked and then an offside call break down a Reds move. He's getting closer.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

20:47

Liverpool are truly in the ascendancy now, playing with the self-assurance and freedom brought by a two-goal spurt. They'll want to end this before the break if they can.

Fabinho fires off-target from distance. Liverpool are just lacking that touch of quality in the final third right now.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

20:32

Diaz pushes a shot into the side netting rather than cut inside for Salah after a break down the left. There are questions over whether the offside flag may have been raised if successful.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

20:30

Barnes gets caught in a two-man Liverpool sandwich and goes down awkwardly. He's back to his feet fast enough, but the wind looks to have been taken out of him by the challenge.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

20:26

Leicester City vs Liverpool

20:26

What a risk that was from the Foxes! They play the ball across the face of their own goal, and there is suddenly a host of Liverpool attackers bearing down on them. Dangerous times.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

20:26

Liverpool are chasing a Premier League double this season over Leicester. The last time they did so was in 2019-20, when they won the title.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

20:25

Make it a second Reds corner. Evans is being tested on his first start of the year by that fearsome Liverpool attack. Leicester withstand it again.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

20:23

Another burst of pressure down the left flank from Liverpool gets Leicester back-pedaling. The visitors certainly look like they have taken control of this match now.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

20:19

Konate effectively gets a free header from the set-piece, but pushes a tame effort low to the ground. Leicester clear without too much panic.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

20:19

Another Liverpool corner. The Reds are starting to find their groove.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

20:16

Liverpool try to unlock their hosts with an intricate series of passes across the right. The final ball is tipped in for Salah and the forward can't bring it under control for a finish.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

20:15

Leicester City vs Liverpool

20:14

What a ball that is from Maddison! The England international's days at the Foxes are likely numbered even if they stay up, and he shows why with a crossfield delivery to cut open Liverpool. Vardy cannot finish the half-chance.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

20:14

Liverpool have a corner of their own without the Foxes left sweating under the cosh. The Reds haven't quite found a dynamic foothold in this tussle to begin with.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

20:12

Now Leicester come up with a corner off Konate, but again, there's nothing to be stuck from the opportunity this early on.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

20:10

This has been a lively opening, with the home crowd making plenty of noise at the King Power Stadium. The fans and the players below them clearly understand the gravity of this match.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

20:07

Leicester City vs Liverpool

20:07

Maddison pumps the delivery in and the flag goes up for offside. Liverpool come away without too much trouble. Their hosts are definitely up for this must-win contest.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

20:07

Another free-kick for Leicester now, as Diaz puts the shove on Maddison moments after the latter body-checked him to no response from the officials. It's in a tidy position, deep on the right flank.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

20:04

An early free-kick goes the way of the Foxes out on the left wing and they tip it into the box looking for a runner. Evans is there, but he falls off the delivery too quickly to trouble the defence.

Leicester City vs Liverpool

Expect goals, folks. Leicester have only kept one clean sheet across their last 13 Premier League meetings with Liverpool, and have conceded 2.1 per game on average in that period.

However, Liverpool have won eight of their last 11 Premier League games against Leicester overall, more than they had in their previous 19 against the Foxes.

It's been a few years since the Reds last tasted success here. Leicester have won their last two Premier League home games against them, last winning more consecutively in the top-flight between 1929 and 1931 (4).
