A potential farewell match

Mohamed Salah is a doubt for Liverpool's trip to Burnley after picking up a so far unspecified knock against Leicester.

Liverpool ended 2017 by coming from behind to beat a rejuvenated Leicester City 2-1 maintaining Jurgen Klopp's side mission to finish inside the top four places for a consecutive season.

He added a second on 76 minutes as Liverpool finally took the lead their play deserved to keep the hosts four points clear of fifth-placed Tottenham and sixth-placed Arsenal, who each have a game in hand. "We'll see what he can do for the next game". Joel Matip's misplaced pass was seized upon by Vicente Iborra and the Spaniard played the ball wide to Riyad Mahrez, who teed up a simple finish for Vardy. Mane found the net for a second time but again he had moved just too early and was correctly adjudged offside.

Vardy has scored more goals against Liverpool than any opponent in his career with this latest one his seventh strike, having netted in all of his last five meetings with the Reds. The Turin club are hopeful of tempting the Reds into accepting €5m-6m in January rather than face losing the 23-year-old on a free transfer in the summer.

The Reds are not the only big team in England to consistently suffer the wrath of the Foxes attacker. Tricky matches against Manchester City and Manchester United didn't help, but a 2-1 loss to Watford would have been disappointing.

Many eyebrows were raised given the figure.

From another corner, in the 37th minute, Schmeichel failed to gather and Matip saw his resulting shot blocked by cluster of blue shirts. Firmino has five and Philippe Coutinho six - more than any other Leicester player. Hopefully nothing happens. The third one is already logical [and] if you have a fourth one then it's even better. It makes Van Dijk, who has fewer than 20 international caps to his name, the most expensive defender in football history.

The Jamie Vardy story is one that can inspire all aspiring footballers across the country. Salah at the double!

He may not be the immediate quick fix the Kop are searching for, but the decisiveness and commanding leadership offered by Van Dijk should breed greater confidence among Klopp's backline. Alberto Moreno is sidelined with an ankle problem while Nathaniel Clyne has a back trouble that will rule him out of contention for the Starting XI.
