What Trueform says for Leicester vs Liverpool
Leicester have put in three solid Premier League performances this season and our Trueform ratings suggest they can give Liverpool a good work-out on home turf.
The Reds have picked up maximum points so far, but the last two victories were workmanlike, rather than spectacular, and this looks their toughest test yet.
We reckon 15/4 for a draw is the way to go with our first Leicester vs Liverpool prediction.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Leicester were competitive in an opening loss at Manchester United and have since confirmed the promise shown at Old Trafford by beating Wolves at home and Southampton away.
City’s 2-1 triumph over the Saints earned us a couple of nice pay-outs, as our selections for that game included 11/5 for the Foxes to win and 7/2 for them to oblige by a one-goal margin.
Ryan Bertrand’s thunderbolt strike put Southampton ahead, but Demarai Gray equalised soon after and Harry Maguire fired in a stoppage-time decider after Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg saw red for the hosts.
“We won this game with our mentality, strong spirit and personality,” said Claude Puel, who celebrated wildly after beating his former club.
“We kept going after conceding the goal. We have good confidence in our play and I’m happy with this. I think we deserved it.”
A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds
Liverpool kicked off with a 4-0 thrashing of West Ham but had to dig deep to win at Crystal Palace and were a touch disjointed when edging out Brighton 1-0.
Mohamed Salah’s 29th goal in 29 appearances at Anfield proved enough to settle a game in which the Reds failed to reach the levels now expected of them.
However, Jurgen Klopp was happy to focus on his side’s 100 per cent record and a third straight clean sheet for new keeper Alisson Becker.
“They had their chances and Alisson had to make a big save,” said the manager. “But we won the game very deservedly.
“One-nil is not a result we’ve had very often since I was in but I am very happy because it was the best we could get today.”
The Reds do look much more resilient at the back this term but have conceded at least once in eight of their last nine meetings with Leicester.
Let’s add 17/2 for a 1-1 scoreline to our Leicester vs Liverpool betting tips.
Southampton 1-2 LEICESTER – Demarai Gray, Harry Maguire
LIVERPOOL 1-0 Brighton – Mohamed Salah
Head-to-head: Liverpool 2-1 Leicester, Leicester 2-3 Liverpool, Leicester 2-0 Liverpool, Leicester 3-1 Liverpool, Liverpool 4-1 Leicester
