Liverpool is back to full strength, and that could be bad news for Leicester City as it heads to Anfield to face the Reds in an English Premier League match Thursday. The Reds (14-6-2) have top players Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane back from the Africa Cup of Nations, and they added another star to an already impressive stable of talent. They are second in the Premier League table, nine points behind leader Manchester City with a game in hand. Liverpool will be looking to avenge a 1-0 loss to the Foxes on Dec. 28, and it has not lost a league game at home this season (7-3-0). Leicester (7-5-8) has finished fifth the past two seasons but is in 10th place during this injury-plagued campaign.

Why you should back Liverpool
The Reds kept right on rolling with Salah and Mane playing at AFCON. The teammates were on opposite sides in the final, with Mane scoring the clinching penalty kick as Senegal beat Salah's Egyptian side. Salah, the EPL's top scorer with 16 goals, says he's ready to go, but Mane could be out. Still, Liverpool has plenty of scoring in reserve, Portuguese attacker Diogo Jota took over in their absence, and he has six goals in the past 10 games and 21 in 35 matches overall.
Liverpool also added 25-year-old Colombian winger Luis Diaz in the January transfer window, and he had 14 goals in 18 games with Porto this season. Liverpool leads the EPL in goals (58) and is second in shots (417) and shots on target (140). The defense, meanwhile, has allowed just 19 goals in 22 games and is second in shots allowed (189) and on target (63). The Reds have a 25-6 goal advantage in 10 league home games, allowing one over the past five games.
Why you should back Leicester City
The Foxes have had major injury concerns all year, but manager Brendan Rodgers is trying to keep things together. Top scorer Jamie Vardy (nine goals) last played in the 1-0 victory against the Reds in December because of a hamstring injury. Leicester still has plenty of talent in attack, with James Maddison leading the way with six goals. Youri Tielemans (five) and Patson Daka (four) also are capable of scoring. Ademola Lookman (three) had the winner in the December match against Liverpool.
Rodgers will have his team motivated after laying down the challenge after a humiliating 4-1 loss to Championship club Nottingham Forest in Sunday's FA Cup match. Kelechi Iheanacho scored the lone goal in that match, and he has two goals and four assists in league play.
