Liverpool are on an 18-game unbeaten run in all competitions, winning 13 and drawing five of those matches. They have scored 45 goals during this sequence.

Liverpool have not conceded a goal after the 42nd minute of any game so far this season.

MatchLiverpool v Leicester City: Team newsTrent Alexander-Arnold has returned to training ahead of Liverpool’s Carabao Cup third-round tie with Leicester City at Anfield on Wednesday night.

The Reds’ next win in the League Cup will be their 150th in the competition (including penalty shootouts).

They are seven goals short of registering 500 in the tournament.

Liverpool and Leicester have met three times in the League Cup and on the two occasions the Reds have won (1986 and 2021), they have gone on to reach the final.

There have been only seven goalless draws in 120 meetings between the clubs in all competitions.

The Reds have failed to score in only two of the last 29 home encounters in all competitions (in successive games in April 1999 and May 2000).

Caoimhin Kelleher has saved more penalties for Liverpool in shootouts (six) than any goalkeeper in the club’s history, with three of those saves coming in last season’s third-round win over Derby County.

Kelleher has played nine times in the League Cup and, in that time, has won four penalty shootouts with a 100 per cent win record.
