Jurgen Klopp's Reds come into this game after a demanding 2-2 draw at the weekend while Leicester should be relatively fresh after their league game was postponed. Bit part players Joe Gomez, Divock Origi and Takumi Minamino have been regulars in the Carabao this season and will likely start with the host's squad covid-depleted.

Leicester edged past Brighton through a penalty shootout in the previous round to set up this quarter-final, but their hopes of pulling off a shock will likely rest on how many of their own players remain on the sidelines thanks to the coronavirus.

This Carabao Cup quarter-final kicks off at 7.45pm GMT. Read on as we explain how to watch a Liverpool vs Leicester live stream today from anywhere in the world.
