Liverpool vs Leicester Prediction
The Reds have been too hot to handle for all of their opponents in the top flight so far and have been at the losing end just once in their last ten games in all competitions. At home, Jurgen Klopp’s men have been reiterating their superiority with even more conviction and have found the back of the net three times or more in each of their past three Premier League clashes.
Leicester are sporting a three-match winning streak of their own at the moment, two of which came away from the comforts of their home. On the road, the Foxes were at the losing end of 1-0 scoreline in a clash with the Red Devils, prior to which they managed to scrape through with no more than a narrow 2-1 win over Sheffield.
It is also worth mentioning that Liverpool have been faring well in their previous head to head meetings with this foe here and have registered the win in six of their last eight games. Taking into account that Leicester have come out on top just once in their league outings so far too, the odds are certainly favoring an easy win for Klopp’s army in this one.
In addition, Sadio Mane chipped in with two goals of his own in Liverpool’s last home game and is currently the club joint top scorer along with Mo Salah. Considering that he found the back of the net when they last squared up against this foe as well, count on the Senegalese forward to contribute to the scorecards by all means.
