Leicester vs Leeds
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 31 January 2021
Kick-off at 14:00 UK/ 15:00 CET
Venue: King Power Stadium.
The Foxes are one of the best teams in the competition, and are placed third in the table.
They are also one of the four teams in the whole league to stay unbeaten in the past five match-days, and only Liverpool and Manchester United have scored more goals than them this campaign.
At home, they have been an even dominant force, and this upcoming game week is a huge opportunity for them to solidify their position in the podium.
The reason being, the second-placed Manchester United are taking on the in-form Arsenal, and at the same time, the fourth-placed West Ham and fifth-placed Liverpool are pitted against each other as well.
Meanwhile, the Peacocks are a recently promoted team, and despite their positive start to the campaign they have now regressed to the mean. As of now, they are finding it hard to perform well against top-tier teams.
Moreover, on the road, they have not been that impressive lately, and most importantly, they have a concerning h2h record against this foe.
By the looks of things, expect Leicester to post the three points on the board.
Leicester vs Leeds: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Brendan Rodgers’s men are on a three-match winning run.
- They have scored eight goals from the past three encounters.
- They are on an unbeaten run since 2012.
- At this venue, the home team had registered nine of the preceding twelve wins.
Leicester vs Leeds Prediction
The Foxes were held to a 1-1 draw the last match-day at home, by Everton. In the meantime, Marcelo Bielsa’s men recorded a 1-2 victory on the road the past game week, against Newcastle.
Going on, Rodgers’s men are on a nine-match unbeaten run, and they were also unbeaten in 12 of their former 13 fixtures.
In the process, they had won nine of these match-ups as well. Do also note that they had scored two or more goals in seven of the last ten appearances here.
On the other hand, their counterparts had lost three of their former four games, and their only wins in the past ten match-days had come against Newcastle, Burnley, and West Brom – all placed 15th or lower in the table.
Moreover, they had conceded three or more goals in five of the former eight road trips, and finally, they also have a dismal h2h record against this foe over the years.
As such, expect Leicester to emerge victorious this Sunday.
