Hello. It was after the astounding victory over Barcelona in 2019 that Jurgen Klopp christened his team “mentality giants”. (He used a third word, but this is a family newspaper.) That has since morphed into “mentality monsters”, an even better description of a team who don’t take no for an answer.

This Liverpool team have so many qualities, but their mental strength is probably the greatest. They have needed plenty of it this season. As well as coming from behind to win three of their first eight league games, Liverpool have had to deal with a surreal 7-2 defeat and an increasingly grotesque injury list.

Now they have another serious test of their metal: Leicester, who on current form are the most dangerous visitors in the Premier League. They savaged Manchester City and Leeds on the counter-attack and won at Arsenal and West Brom as well. Leicester have also had to cope with all kinds of injuries, though you wouldn’t know it from the smart, unobtrusive way Brendan Rodgers has filled the various gaps in his first XI.

In short, this is a rare old Sunday night humdinger. If Jamie Vardy turns up, Leicester have a realistic chance of ending Liverpool’s long unbeaten run at Anfield – and blowing the title race wide open. A win would put Leicester top of the league. Liverpool can’t go top tonight, unless they win 10-0, but they can set a new club record of 64 top-flight games at Anfield without defeat.

They’ll want a lot more than a record-breaking draw though. The bigger the test, the greater the statement if you ace it. Liverpool have the chance to remind everyone that they are still the best team in England. And the scariest monsters.

Kick off 7.15pm.
