Leicester will use the pace of Jamie Vardy to destroy injury-hit Liverpool in Sunday’s top-of-the-table Premier League clash.
The league-leading Foxes go to Anfield full of confidence on the back of six straight wins in all competitions – a run which sees them one point above the champions.
The Reds, meanwhile, are walking wounded with no fewer than 10 first-teamers out, including their first-choice back four sidelined, top goalscorer Mo Salah (Covid-19) and skipper Jordan Henderson is a doubt with muscle tightness.
And Foxes rightback Christian Fuchs believes former Kop boss Brendan Rodgers will use seven-goal Vardy to target that brittle backline to get snatch the three points.
The Austrian veteran says: “Pace kills the defence. You cannot deal with pace for 90 minutes. You can adjust your game to a versatile player or a player who is good at dribbling but pace you cannot control 100 per cent.
“That’s what Jamie Vardy has shown for years now that he’s a threat when it comes to counter attacks. When he breaks the lines, he’s undefendable.”
Having been part of Leicester’s long-shot Prem title triumph in 2015/16, Fuchs believe Rodgers is building something similar to then-coach Claudio Ranieri’s champion squad.
He adds “It’s hard to compare. What both did or are doing well is the man management part. These days it’s one of the most important parts to understand your players.
“That you understand your players’ personal life and might have private issues sometimes but if you understand that and you then get on top of that and get your players to buy in then you are on the winning streak. Brendan Rodgers has done that.”
