Leicester City could be boosted by yet another injury problem for Liverpool, with Jordan Henderson picking up a muscle issue on England duty.
The 30-year-old was withdrawn at half-time in the Three Lions’ 2-0 defeat to Belgium on Sunday, with Gareth Southgate confirming he is a doubt for Wednesday’s clash with Iceland.
Leicester head to Anfield on Sunday evening, hoping to take advantage of a host of injuries for Jurgen Klopp’s champions.
Not only is Henderson a doubt, but Andy Robertson, Fabinho and Thiago are not guaranteed to figure, while Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Mohamed Salah are all definitely out.

Leicester should view this as a wonderful chance to pick up a rare win at Anfield, ending Liverpool’s 63-game unbeaten run in the league.
The Reds will still be able to field a superb team on Sunday, with the likes of Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino likely to start, but having so many key players out can only be a boost for Brendan Rodgers.
Henderson is one of Liverpool’s most important players, setting the tempo and leading superbly, so his potential absence is another positive for the Foxes, ahead of a vital game.
