Liverpool vs Leicester, EPL

Liverpool and Leicester will lock horns at Anfield on Sunday evening in a highly anticipated top-of-the-table clash.

LIVERPOOL

Champions Liverpool have shown their champion mettle with some gutsy and even glitzy performances in the wake of an injury-riddled start to the new season. They went into the international off a hard-earned 1-1 draw at Manchester City. That draw was their seventh straight unbeaten match (5W, 2D) since they lost captain and defensive linchpin Virgil van Dijk to a season-ending knee injury in the 2-2 Merseyside derby against Everton.

The run included an away win at Ajax and home wins over Sheffield United, Midtjylland and West Ham and an impressive 5-0 thrashing of Atalanta in their own backyard in the Champions League.

Further bad news have come for Jurgen Klopp’s side with dependable striker Mo Salah contracting the virus while on international duty and defenders Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold picking up knocks too in the last couple of weeks.

LEICESTER

Leicester have surprised all and sundry with a very strong start to this season. They’ve won 6 of the 8 league games they’ve played and are currently perched atop the league table with 18 points, one clear of the chasing pack. They’ve also won all three of their Europa League fixtures and occupy the top slot on in Group G of the Europa League.

Brendan Rodgers has done an excellent job since his appointment as Leicester manager in 2019. He was disappointed to finish outside the top 4 last season after dwelling there for the majority of the season and he seems set to make amends for that if this strong start is anything to go by.

LIVERPOOL V LEICESTER MATCH PREVIEW AND BETTING TIPS

Bookies have listed Liverpool as favourites for this match. Perhaps that’s partly informed by the fact that the wheels haven’t quite come off the Liverpool bandwagon despite the injuries and illnesses they have been dealing with so far. Or the fact that they haven’t lost a home league game in 63 matches. Or maybe because Leicester haven’t tasted victory at Anfield in the last couple of decades. However, their injury situation has gotten worse after the international break. Leicester, meantime, are on an incredible run and they’ve proven they can play ball with the league’s big boys having already claimed the scalps of Man City and Arsenal this season already. We feel they have a great chance here and we are backing them to win on the double chance @ 1.84 with Betway for our initial betting prediction.

Jamie Vardy is certainly licking his lips at the prospects of facing Liverpool’s limping makeshift defence. He is in imperious form at the minute and leads the league with eight goals. He has scored in all 4 away league games they have played, all of which they won. The 33-year-old hit a hat-trick at Etihad Stadium and also struck on the road at West Brom, Arsenal and Leeds. He has scored seven goals in nine league games against Liverpool and we are convinced he will add to that tally @ 2.20 with Betway betting app as our final betting tip here.
