Emphasizing the defensive problems of the team, Shearer said, "The truth is that Liverpool are no different under boss Klopp than they were under Brendan Rodgers".

Liverpool can now turn the mood around with the same fixture coming up twice in just a few days.

Liverpool's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was given his first start by manager Juergen Klopp following his move from Arsenal, while Phillipe Coutinho was also in the lineup at the King Power Stadium where the visitors dominated play before the interval.

Writing in his column for The Sun, the Premier League's all-time top goalscorer described the team's performance against Burnley on Saturday as "laughable" and believes Klopp has fooled many "into thinking everything has been on an upward curve since he joined Liverpool".

Jurgen Klopp insists he does not feel the pressure to win trophies at Liverpool.

"You are in a situation with your old club - and I don't say this about Alex specifically - and you accept it and it is hard to make the next step".

While goalkeeper Danny Ward and midfielder Marko Grujic are also expected to be in the starting 11 for the Reds.

Klopp announced: "I'm not sure the world is ready for such a insane decision, a third goalkeeper in one season!"

"Danny Ward will play tomorrow if nothing happens overnight".

Give the devil his due, Liverpool has become a team which can beat any opponent regardless of their strength under Klopp's rule, and they are certainly able to score against any opponent if they are not extremely unlucky that day.

And speaking about Oxlade-Chamberlain, who has made a number of substitute appearances for the Reds this season, Klopp said: "It's a fantastic opportunity now for Alex". He had an impact when he came on, now you have three of the line up! However, Dejan Lovren, who missed the stalemate with Burnley with a back injury, is likely to miss out.

Leicester's provisional squad: Schmeichel, Jakupovic, Hamer, Simpson, Morgan, Knight, Chilwell, Maguire, Dragovic, Wasilewski, Benalouane, Iborra, Ndidi, Amartey, Gray, Choudhury, Albrighton, Thomas, Mahrez, Musa, Vardy, Ulloa, Slimani, Okazaki, Iheanacho.
