The defending champions fell to a third defeat in five matches, losing 4-1 at home to league leaders Manchester City over the past weekend. Defeat left the Reds 10 points behind the Citizens and three behind the third-placed Foxes. 
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp duly admitted that his team's main focus now is on holding onto a Uefa Champions League place, following another blow to their title ambitions. 

"That's [a top four spot] our main target. There are enough games to play to secure them but we have to win games," Klopp said. 

"If we play like we did for a long time tonight [Sunday at Anfield], we will win football games."

The German added: "Being angry about the result is completely fine but don’t forget the good stuff because playing against City football like we did, calm and stuff like this and in small spaces, that was really, really good.
"It was really good so we will take that as well. But I know people are mostly only interested in the result and that isn’t right again, so we have to take that and will take that." 
Leicester's Premier League hopes have also taken a hit in recent weeks. The Foxes have only won once in their last four outings following a 0-0 draw away to Wolves last time out.

An own goal from Jonny Evans and strikes from Diogo Jota and Roberto Firmino handed Liverpool a comfortable 3-0 win over Leicester in the reverse fixture on Merseyside earlier this season. Firmino bagged a brace for the Reds in a 4-0 win at Leicester last season.
