Liverpool vs Leicester City
England – Premier League
Date: Sunday, 22 November 2020
Kick-off at 19:15 UK/ 20:15 CET
These two are the best teams in the PL at the moment, and both harbor hopes of clinching the title at the end of the season. As of now, the Foxes are at the top of the table, while the Reds are trailing a single point behind.
Either has scored 18 goals apiece from eight games each, and at present, only the Spurs have scored more, and that too just one extra goal.
Both teams have been in superb form lately, and since the winner of this encounter will in all probably have the top-most spot as well as the momentum in the title-race, a fierce clash in on the cards.
Moreover, majority of h2h meetings over the years also have ended with plenty of goals.
As such, expect another high-scoring thriller this Sunday at Anfield, especially with the defending champions suffering a lot of casualty in their backline.

Liverpool vs Leicester City Prediction
Jurgen Klopp’s men were held to a 1-1 draw on the road the last match-day, by Manchester City. In the meantime, the Foxes registered a 1-0 win at home against Wolves.
Going on, the Reds are reigning champions of the competition, and they had also won five of their former six fixtures. They had also scored two or more goals in 15 of their preceding 19 games, and at home, they have not lost a single match all through 2020.
In fact, they are on a 24-fixture unbeaten streak at home, and in the process had won 20 of these games as well.
On the other hand, their counterparts are on a six-game winning run, and they had scored a total of 15 goals in the process. They are also the toppers of the table, and had also won their last six road fixtures as well.
And in these six games, they slotted in a total of 17 goals. Going on, most h2h clashes over the past several years have had goals in plenty, and particularly the ones at this venue.
