Liverpool vs Leicester City Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Liverpool were able to keep a four-point advantage over Manchester City after a 4-3 win over Crystal Palace. Andros Townsend was able to silence Anfield with the 34th-minute goal, but normalcy was restored just after half-time as Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino came up with goals either side of the break. James Tomkins, though, put the game level with a second-half header. Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane restored Liverpool’s lead for the second time in the game before Palace threatened a late equaliser when Max Meyer scored in injury time. Leicester City were at the end of a 4-3 thrilling loss against Wolves. Goals from Diogo Jota and Ryan Bennett were cancelled out by Demarai Gray and Conor Coady (own goal.) Diogo Jota was able to hand Wolves a win by completing his hat-trick either side of a goal from Wes Morgan.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Liverpool will be in a strong position to claim a fourth consecutive victory, as the team has been generally excellent at Anfield. The unbeaten record at home for Liverpool stretches to almost 2 years. Even though Leicester have been in the top half of the table, their recent form has been a major letdown. The club has been fighting hard to stop falling into the bottom half. I would pick a victory for Liverpool along with under 3.5 goals, as Leicester do defend well.

The recent defensive form of Liverpool has left a sour taste with the team being exposed quite often on the transitions. Leicester have players like James Maddison and Jamie Vardy who have the ability to excel on transitions. I would pick both teams to score.

Liverpool win and under 3.5 goals – 1/1

Both teams to score – 11/10

Liverpool Preview

Jurgen Klopp remains without several key players with James Milner one of the biggest misses. The Reds cannot afford to drop more points in the league with Manchester City back to the best. There have been a couple of scares already in the last few weeks. As a team not experienced with winning the league title, Liverpool have the work hard and the club also have an upcoming Champions League match against Bayern Munich.

Liverpool Team News

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (cruciate ligament), Joe Gomez (broken leg), Alexander Arnold (ligament), Virgil van Dijk (illness), Fabinho (hamstring), Georginio Wijnaldum (knee), and Rhian Brewster (ankle) are unavailable for the Reds. James Milner is suspended for the match.

Leicester City Preview

Leicester City have once again been slipping down to a string of poor results with four losses in the last five matches. Manager Claude Puel made Leicester hard to beat with a defensive tactic but recent matches have witnessed the Foxes concede too many goals. Ironically, Leicester have the best defensive record amongst teams outside the top four. At the other end, the Foxes have been struggling for goals but recent matches have witnessed an improvement.

Leicester City Team News

Daniel Amartey (broken ankle) and Harry Maguire (leg) are unavailable for Leicester.
