Leicester could open up a six-point gap on Liverpool when they host the defending champions in the Premier League’s Saturday early kickoff.
This is a massive game with regards to both teams and we will look at Gbets prices for our betting tips for this game.
Leicester missed a chance to keep pace with the Manchester outfits atop the leaderboard as they were held to a goalless draw at Wolverhampton in their last league game. They still remain third nevertheless and are very much on course for Champions League qualification after barely missing out last season.
Despite their terrific record this season, they have seemingly struggled at home than on the road with five of their six Premier League losses coming in their own backyard.
They did well to pick up results in the absence of Jamie Vardy who has been recovering from injury. He came on as a sub in the Wolves game and played an hour in their midweek FA Cup win over Brighton. Despite failing to score in either game, his conditioning should be good enough to see him lead the lines this Saturday.
Liverpool’s defence of their title lies in ruins at the moment. That 4-1 thrashing at home at the hands of a resurgent Manchester City for their third straight loss at Anfield seemed to be the final straw that might just have broken their back. This game will be a key indicator of whether that indeed is the case or not.
They are now fourth on the table, 10 points off Man City, who actually have a game in hand. With the season moving rapidly they are quickly running out of games to make up the difference and cannot afford to slide any further if they are to have any hopes of retaining the title they won by a huge margin last season.
To be fair, injuries have been a huge part of their collapse, especially in defence. Jurgen Klopp might opt to field at least one of his deadline-day signings this weekend, with Ozan Kabak looking most likely to be ahead of former Preston captain Ben Davies considering his Bundesliga experience.
This is a make-or-break game for Liverpool in so far as their title defence is concerned. Three straight defeats at Anfield has left them gasping for air and the talk has now moved from their title defence to holding onto a Champions League slot. All is however not lost as there is still a lot of ball left to play. Liverpool is likely to go on the attack from the get-go here and despite Leicester’s resolute defence we fancy them to break the deadlock @ 1.73.
Mo Salah’s form has been one of the few silver linings for Liverpool during their struggles. The Egyptian international has banged in five goals from his last five games including a brace in the 3-2 loss against Man United and the penalty against Man City last week. We fancy him to continue his terrific output @ 1.82 as our final betting tip of the game. Gbets Welcome Bonus offers new customers up 100% up to R1000 on their first deposit.
