10th February 2022 – 20:45, Anfield, Liverpool
Liverpool will host Leicester City in the Premier League 24th round on Thursday evening. The home side has improved its form, and they don’t give up on the title race. The visitors have been very inconsistent lately, but they will search for a surprise at Anfield.
Liverpool Preview & Team News
Liverpool will hope to repeat their last result after the 3:1 triumph in the FA Cup over Cardiff City. The Reds sit in second place, being nine points behind Manchester City and having one game in hand. Their most recent results really do illustrate the point that things are going according to plan in the Liverpool defense. Liverpool has given the opposition little, resulting in the total number of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper over their past six outings, standing at three. Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane return to Liverpool after the Africa Cup of Nations, and the Egyptian international is the top scorer in the Premier League with 16 goals. Divock Origi (Muscular problems) is out of contention for this matchup.
Leicester City Preview & Team News
Following on from tasting defeat last time out to Nottingham Forest in FA Cup competition, Leicester City will be aiming to make amends here. The Foxes haven’t been very confident lately, winning just twice in the previous five rounds. They are far from the continental qualification, and a mid-table finish might be a realistic achievement this season. The numbers tell their own story, and Leicester City has been scored against in five of their last six games, seeing opposing sides hit 15 goals in all. Defensively, Leicester City can certainly do much better. Ademola Lookman shows why he was brought in as a great reinforcement, and he is unstoppable in a one-on-one game. However, Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has some current player fitness concerns. Wesley Fofana (Fibula Fracture), Jamie Vardy (Hamstring Injury), and Jonny Evans (Hamstring Injury) won’t be making appearances.
Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction
Although Liverpool lost in their latest head-to-head encounter, the hosts are firm favorites in this match. They shouldn’t miss the chance to stay in the title race, and we believe the Reds will secure their lead at halftime.
Goals Market Prediction
The hosts have been pretty efficient lately, netting at least twice on the previous four occasions. On the other hand, Leicester City struggles in the back, and we might see a goal galore in this one.
