Liverpool vs Leicester City Predictions and Betting Tips

Anfield is the stage for this highly-anticipated encounter thus Sunday as the defending champions take on the league leaders. The Reds and The Foxes, once again, go at each other in the name of Premier League glory. Who grabs maximum points in this maximum six-pointer?

The Reds comfortable dispatched the foxes in their most recent game back in the 2019/20 season. In an inspiring performance from Alexander-Arnold, Liverpool emerged 4-0, winner. Over the last 18 meetings, The Reds have been dominant with 12 wins compared to Leicester City's 3 wins. It is also to be noted that Leicester last recorded a victory against the Reds since 2017. As such, they would be looking to, first, break this three -year jinx and secondly, hold on to the top spot.

Feisty encounter on the cards

One point separates both sides at the summit of the table, making this game a must-win for both outfits. Both sides have scored a similar amount of goals but the Foxes have been more solid at the back as they have conceded only 9 goals while Klopp's side has shipped 16.

The Foxes, since the return of Jamie Vardy, are heading into this game looking to make it six wins from six games this weekend. Since his return, the prolific Englishman has scored in every single game he has featured in for the Foxes. Although he could have grabbed two in their most recent game, his opener was more than enough o secure a win for them in their most recent game at home to Wolves. The three points they obtained ensured they went into the international break at the summit of the table and we expect them to be keen on holding on to that spot.

Liverpool, on the other hand, has also managed to hold their ground taking into account their injury problems. Since their first wave of injuries hit them, they haven't lost a single game in a run that spans across seven games. This impressive run has gotten them a perfect record in the UCL group stage, and third position on the league standings. Although they failed o pick up all three points in their most recent game, they must have been happy with a point at the Etihad Stadium. In said game, Salah's opener was cancelled out by Jesus' leveller as both sides played out a 1-1 draw.
