Jamie Vardy is still one goal away from his 50th EPL strike. He has carved out several milestones, and all came at the expense of Man Utd. The speedy Englishman scored his first in the competition against Man Utd and set the record for most consecutive PL matches scored in by a player (11).
The Reds will be without Eric Bailly who is set to miss the next two or three months to undergo surgery on his injured ankle, while captain Michael Carrick and fellow midfielder Marouane Fellaini have been absent for a while.
