Betting Tip for matchday 19 of the 2019/2020 Premier League between Leicester City FC and Liverpool FC. The game will be played at King Power Stadium on the 26.12.2019 at 21:00.

Leicester – Liverpool

Leicester is facing Liverpool, the Fifa World Club Champions at the King Power Stadium in an exciting match up. Coupled with Liverpool leading the Premier League, they’ll come into the match in high spirits. Leicester, on the other hand, will want to reignite the faintest hope of a title challenge after their 3-1 loss away at the current champions, Manchester City. The match rightly pointed out the gap between City and the 2015/16 champions. Should they beat Liverpool, they would be seven points behind Jurgen Klopp’s men and would have played a game more.

Leicester City

It’s not far-fetched to say Leicester has been one of the surprises of this season. While, after the appointment of Brendan Rogers, they ended last season well, it’s fair to say no one saw them in the top two positions on the table. They’ve bought well in the transfer market and have a stable team that knows what the manager wants. The draw against Norwich truncated a run of eight successive wins and a run of goals in eight consecutive matches for the Premier League’s current top goal scorer, Jamie Vardy. Leicester City plays on the front foot and have scored the third-most goals – 41 in the first 18 matches – in the Premier League this season. Nonetheless, their attacking play has not left them vulnerable at the back. They have conceded the least amount of goals in the league this season – 14 in the first 18 matches – tied with Liverpool. The foxes have also been very difficult to beat, with only three losses in 18 matches; considering they lost 16 matches last season, that’s an improvement. In their last five league games, they scored 10 goals and conceded six goals. Apart from Vardy, who has led the attack superbly this season, the likes of Maddison, Ndidi, Ricardo, and centre back pairing of Soyuncu and Evans have also contributed immensely to a very balanced team. With Liverpool probably tired from their World Club Cup exertions and travels, Brendan Roger’s team has the requisite skill and mind-set to get one over the league leaders.

Liverpool

What more can be said about Liverpool? They’ve been a ruthless and easily dispatched team, sometimes even without getting out of first gear. Trent and Arnold are still bombing forward as usual. The front three of Mane, Salah, and Firmino are still getting the job done. Consequently, they’ve won 16 of their 17 league matches. The only blip was a goalless draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford. Could they be the new Invincibles? Time will tell! They’ll come into this match buoyed by their Fifa Club World Cup win and would be keen to press on their advantage over Brendan Rogers’ men to 13 points, even with a game in hand. Since drawing 1-1 with the Red Devils, Jurgen Klopp’s men have won 9 consecutive matches and scored at least two goals in those matches. In their last five games, they’ve kept three clean sheets and conceded three goals in two matches. Due to their exertions at the Fifa World Cup, it is not totally out of place to see Jurgen Klopp deciding on some rotations in the match. Either way, Liverpool have done exceptionally well even when they rotate. The absence of Fabinho to injury has not been felt like many people thought.

Leicester City vs Liverpool Betting Tips and Prediction

In recent matches, Liverpool had the upper hand over Leicester City and would be keen to continue that run. The Reds have not lost against The Foxes in the last five games, and have outscored them 10 to 6. We expect this trend to continue, despite Leicester City’s home form (seven wins and two draws from nine matches). Matches between the two clubs have also produced goals; there’s been over 1.5 goals in the last five matches and over 2.5 goals in four of the last five encounters. Hence, goals are also to be expected. For more betting tips on the Leicester City vs Liverpool match, check out our betting tips page here.
