Liverpool host Leicester City
Just few days after their thriller against Salzburg in the Champions League, the leaders Liverpool host Leicester City at the Anfield. Let’s discuss this game in our English Premier League predictions and see what we can tell you about it.
During the week Liverpool had an exciting night in the Champions League, when they had to dig very deep to beat Salzburg at home. The game ended with a 4-3 win for the Reds, but the spectacular thing is that the hosts had a clear lead of three goals and they allowed their opponents to equalise.
Now the European kings are facing another tough challenge, because Brendan Rodgers returns to the Anfield with his Leicester City. Rodgers is doing a fantastic job at the club, since he replaced Claude Puel in the middle of the previous campaign. At this moment the Foxes are third in the standings and they look strong enough to fight even for a Top 4 finish.
Leicester’s performance in the last five games is impressive. They suffered one defeat from the hands of Manchester United, but also achieved four wins. This is a proof for the great job Rodgers is doing.
As for Liverpool, Jurgen Klopp’s lads look pretty serious in their ambition to win the Premier League. From seven games played so far, Liverpool are just perfect – seven wins achieved. They have a good advantage of five points ahead of the champion Manchester City and you can be sure that they’d like to keep it.
Liverpool’s biggest problem remains the absence of Alisson, while Joel Matip and Xherdan Shaqiri also remain sidelined. In the same time Leicester can’t rely on Matthew James and the influental midfielder James Maddison.
That’s our English Premier League predictions for the fixture between Liverpool and Leicester City at the Anfield. The Reds have enough reasons to feel as favourites, but it won’t be easy for them, we assure you.
