This will be the second match between Leicester and Liverpool this week.
Last Tuesday, the two teams faced off on a League Cup match, with Leicester getting a 2-0 win, with goals from Okazaki and Slimani. This Saturday, on a Premier League match, the history should be a bit different.
It hasn’t been an easy start of the season for Leicester. They only have a win, at home against Brighton, and a draw, away at Huddersfield, which show that they have only been able to get points against recently-promoted teams.
We are not yet on a tragedy scenario but Craig Shakespeare is worried about their situation, because they were projecting a sort of return to glory for this season, after having paid the price last season, of the biggest moment in the club’s history.
Their win on the League Cup gave them some room to breathe since they are living on the verge of relegation this season.
But Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool didn’t take the week off to help Leicester. Even more because the Reds need positive results as well.
Not a single win on their last 4 matches is a big worry for them. Their heavy loss, 0-5, at Manchester City, with the sending-off and consequent suspension of Mané ended up taking a toll on this team.
Before losing to Leicester, they have drawn twice at home, with Sevilla, on the Champions League, and with Burnley.
Leicester vs Liverpool – Betting Tip and Prediction:
At home, Liverpool hasn’t felt any particular issues to score. But they are showing some defensive weaknesses, which has lead them to concede in practically every match played so far.
Leicester on the other hand, have only failed to score once. Basically, these are two teams that like to score and they might end up scoring here, to delight their fans.
