A Tricky match at Leicester but will Liverpool Stroll to Victory?
This fixture is usually a thrilling end to end encounter, but Leicester is no match to Liverpool this time out. The Reds can record a comfortable win at King Power Stadium.
A 2. 0 defeat of Wolves saw Leicester pick their first win of the season on home turf. James Maddison gave a strong performance with a goal on top, which made him the man of the match. Jamie Vardy picked up a straight red card, so he won’t feature against Liverpool. That’s a massive blow for Leicester over the next few games but a chance for Ihenacho to show his quality.
The Reds are well-organised this season and boast quality all over the pitch. New recruit Keita has perfectly slotted into the Liverpool team, and his technical ability should see him shine in this one. Liverpool’s front three were sharp as always in their 4 - 0 win against West Ham, and it’s easy to see at least one of them netting at Leicester. The Reds conceded two goals in this ground last season but their backline is now solid, and a clean sheet not beyond them.
Liverpool has quality in depth, and this should be nothing but a win.
- Since promotion in 2014, Leicester has never failed to score in their home games against Liverpool.
- Nine of the last ten meetings between these two sides have seen two or more goals scored.
Top Tips: Liverpool win | Over 2.5 match goals
