This Boxing Day of English Premier League promises an exciting round of fixtures for football lovers around the world. We take a look at the four key matches from the day and analyses the stats to arrive at a prediction. Let’s find out “Who Carries the Day”.
1. Liverpool vs Leicester City
Liverpool are seeking to bounce back from their 3-0 humiliation to Watford on last Sunday, However Jurgen Klopp will man his boys at home to face Cluadio Ranieri’s amazing side on Boxing Day.
All hands are pointing to this fixture, why because Jurgen Klopp brought a different game plan in the Premier League since he took over from Brendan Rodgers in October while Leicester City are enjoying the moment with excellent performances week in week out.
Liverpool’s 24 points put them at 10th in the table while Leicester City have made themselves the team to watch in every game with 38 points sitting on top of the table.
The last six matches of these two sides have seen the Reds as the power hand over the Foxes with four wins and two draws meaning Leicester City have never recorded a win against Liverpool in the last six outings.
Leicester City can however brim confidence from their splendid performance in the League and big clubs as well. Since their 5-2 defeat to Arsenal, they have not lost any games so far but had a 1-1 against Man United and 2-1 win over Chelsea.
Liverpool’s last three home games in all competitions have yield positive results, that’s two wins and a draw but whether home or away Leicester City do not care and look very threatening to every team. This showdown for me will be the battle of supremacy, who carries the day, Liverpool or Leicester City?
