Reigning champions Liverpool and potential contender Leicester City are hoping to make each other well when two unusual teams tangle up against the King at Power Stadium on Saturday (start time 7:30 a.m. ET on NBCSN and online via NBCSportscom)

Liverpool suffered a 4-1 defeat by Man City, in which the one-time unbeatable home team fell to a third consecutive home defeat, while Leicester’s 0-0 draw at Wolves and the Foxes left much to be desired only once in four league games

Third place is on the line, and Leicester opens the day three points ahead of the Reds in fourth place, who are 40 points now 10 points behind first place and play one game more than title favorite Man City

Can Brendan Rodgers get you over with at his previous club? The Leicester boss has lost all three of his encounters against Jürgen Klopp and has not beaten the Reds since he was their boss A 1-0 Swansea win at Liberty Stadium in 2012 earned Swans four out of six points from Kenny Dalglish’s side
