Liverpool-Leicester is one of the most interesting games of Day 4 of the Premier League. Liverpool is a team which needs points to avoid losing contact with the top sides, while the reigning champions are looking to show that last season was not a surprise.
They got their first win of the season last weekend against Swansea and want to repeat the feat against Liverpool. Will they be able to do it?
Liverpool vs Leicester
Last season, they suffered defeat at Anfield thanks to a goal from Benteke. Now, the Belgian striker left Anfield, but Liverpool has lots of other players who can put the ball in the back of the net. After a season where Leicester’s defense was absolutely superb, this time around it doesn’t look very good.
The fact that Huth and Morgan are rather slow defenders will also prove problematic – Liverpool is well known for the speed of their attacking plays. Vardy and Mahrez are also fairly far away from top form – without the two, Leicester is just a mid-table team.
On the other hand, Liverpool has shown a traditional lack of consistency this season, altering awesome displays with boring draws and defeats.
Liverpool vs Leicester Betting Prediction & Tips
They had tons of chances to close the game against Tottenham during the first half, but missed most of them and only managed a 1-1 draw after a 0-2 defeat against Burnley. Klopp will surely be looking for a win, and the team will be desperate to get it.
And we think they will – their attacking power should prove too much for the slow Leicester defense. Liverpool to score and Liverpool to win are our predictions for the game.
Handicap Result – Liverpool (-1): 2.60 or 8/5
