Five questions to pass the time while we wait for kickoff from King Power Stadium.

  1. After a long layoff, how excited are you on the Steady Excitement Index™ for some football?
  2. Prior to the last match, there were suggestions that Loris Karius would get the nod over Simon Mignolet. Instead, the Belgian got the start. Will Mignolet keep his spot?
  3. Sadio Mané leads all Reds with 11 league goals. Roberto Firmino and Adam Lallana trail with 8 and 7, respectively. Will Mané extend his lead against the Foxes?
  4. Any surprise inclusions after the mini preseason in Spain?
  5. How many years will it take for Liverpool to have more Premier League titles than Leicester?

Bonus: The unceremonious dumping of Claudio Ranieri less than a year after he guided the Foxes to the unlikeliest of league triumphs has to go down as one of the most cynical moves in sports history. What other baffling managerial or personnel moves would you rank alongside Ranieri’s canning?
