What Trueform says for Liverpool vs Leicester
Liverpool have had to scramble to victory in their last couple of Premier League fixtures and Leicester could also make their presence felt at Anfield.
Both teams have scored in the last five top-flight matches between these clubs and the Foxes have only failed to net in one of their 11 away games this term.
Punters can get 11/10 for City and the Reds to each hit the back of the net here and that is our opening Liverpool vs Leicester prediction.
A Look At Liverpool’s Betting Odds
Liverpool still have the best defensive record in the Premier League, but injuries have made them more vulnerable of late, even on home turf.
Jurgen Klopp’s men have conceded in three of their last four matches on Merseyside following a 4-3 defeat of Crystal Palace earlier this month.
Mohamed Salah’s brace and further strikes from Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane allowed the Reds to stay four points clear at the summit, but Klopp lost another option at the back when James Milner was dismissed.
Klopp admitted his “relief” at the final whistle and commented: “We knew for different reasons the game would be difficult. They are really good at counter-attacks and set-pieces.”
Leicester can boast similar credentials, thanks to Jamie Vardy’s pace on the break and the aerial threat of Harry Maguire from free-kicks and corners, so this should again be interesting.
We still think the Reds will come out on top, though, so 29/10 for them to prevail 2-1, 3-1 or 4-1 appeals from the Liverpool vs Leicester odds.
Last Liverpool line-up: Alisson, Fabinho, Van Dijk, Robertson, Matip, Milner, Keita, Henderson, Firmino, Mane, Salah.
A Look At Leicester City’s Betting Odds
Leicester were on the wrong end of another seven-goal thriller when going down 4-3 at Wolves last time out, with Diogo Jota’s stoppage-time decider ending a brave fightback.
Claude Puel was taunted with chants of “you’re getting sacked in the morning” when the Foxes trailed 2-0 at half-time.
The Frenchman will have been happy with the spirit shown by his players after the interval, but accused them of being “naive” in their game management.
Puel is favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave his post, but City are not badly placed in ninth and have won five times on the road.
Vardy was missing when Liverpool won 2-1 at King Power Stadium at the start of September, but he will be looking to maintain an impressive record against the Reds here.
The England international has netted seven times in his last five encounters with the table toppers and 5/2 for him to hit the target again is added to our Liverpool vs Leicester betting tips.
Last Leicester line-up: Schmeichel, Simpson, Chilwell, Morgan, Pereira, Maguire, Gray, Barnes, Mendy, Ndidi, Vardy.
LIVERPOOL 4-3 Crystal Palace – Mohamed Salah (2), Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane
Wolves 4-3 LEICESTER – Demarai Gray, Conor Coady (og), Wes Morgan
Head-to-head: Leicester 1-2 Liverpool, Liverpool 2-1 Leicester, Leicester 2-3 Liverpool, Leicester 2-0 Liverpool, Leicester 3-1 Liverpool, Liverpool 4-1 Leicester
