Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers dreamed of big cup nights at Anfield when he was named Liverpool boss, but now looks to take the next step toward a third trophy with the Foxes when he visits the Reds on Wednesday.
Rodgers led Leicester to the FA Cup title last season and the Community Shield this summer, and he’ll now look to move within a win of Wembley by handing a defeat to Jurgen Klopp’s men.

Liverpool vs Leicester City prediction
Maybe? But probably not. Leicester City knows its next league test is Man City while Liverpool’s attack depth should be more than enough to handle the Foxes defending ahead of a visit from Leeds at the weekend. It’s unlikely to be a blowout, but the Reds should have enough to get the job done. Liverpool 3-1 Leicester City.
