Monday 2023-05-15 - Leicester vs Liverpool - Confirmed Lineups - Núñez absent as Liverpool go for 7th straight win

15th May 2023

Somewhat surprisingly, Darwin Núñez is nowhere to be found on either the team, either as a member of the Starting XI or on the bench. He was not listed on the latest injury report, so it is not known if Núñez suffered a late knock or if he is absent for some other reason. Luiz Diaz slides in to take his place while Arthur Melo is featured on the team sheet for the first time in a while.

For Leicester City, James Maddison and Harvey Barnes are the main goal-scoring threats out of the midfield.

Leicester City


Iversen, Pereira, Faez, Evans, Castagne, Ndidi, Soumare, Tielemans, Maddison, Barnes, Vardy


Smithies, Souttar, Kristiansen, Amartey, Daka, Mendy, Praet Thomas, Tete



Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Konate, VanDijk, Robertson, , Henderson, Jones, Diaz, Salah, Gakpo


Kelleher, Gomez, Milner, Elliott, Jota, Tsimikas, Arthur Carvalho, Matip

LFC Globe Verdict

Liverpool are going for their 7th straight win, so it is puzzling that Núñez does not feature on the team sheet. The Reds have plenty of other scoring options in Diaz, Salah and Diogo Joto, so they still should not have a problem putting the ball in the back of the net even without Núñez.
