The Foxes welcome Liverpool to the King Power Stadium in Leicester on Saturday for this Premier League match.

On the previous 5 occasions these sides have met, one of the sides topped the Premier League table. Leicester were league-leaders when they travelled to Anfield earlier in the season, falling to a 0-3 defeat.

The 4 matches prior to this all saw Liverpool come into the match as the Premier League’s pace-setters. This includes Liverpool’s last visit to the King Power Stadium on Boxing Day of 2019.

Leicester took a 0-4 beating here at the hands of the Reds that day. The result effectively ended whatever whispers existed of a Leicester title challenge. However, Saturday’s contest is not about the league title but Champions League qualification, involving the sides in 3rd and 4th in the table respectively.

The Foxes are currently on a run of 7 games without a victory against Liverpool, losing 6 of those 7 matches including each of the last 3.

Leicester City vs Liverpool: Recommended bets

Leicester’s last home victory over Liverpool came in the Carabao Cup back in 2017 by a 2-0 scoreline. A repeat of this score on Saturday is available at odds of 22/1.

Liverpool hammered Leicester 0-4 here on their last visit to the King Power Stadium back in December 2019. You can back them at 40/1 for the same scoreline here on Saturday.

Leicester vs Liverpool has typically been a high-scoring affair, with 8 of the last 9 league games between them seeing over 2.5 goals scored; an average of 3.6 goals per game. You can back another high scoring game here on Saturday with odds of 4/6 on for over 2.5 goals.

No Leicester player has more goals against Liverpool than Jamie Vardy. The 34-year-old striker has 7 goals and an assist in 12 appearances against the Reds.

Leicester City vs Liverpool: What are the betting odds?

The Foxes have been disappointing at home this season, picking up just 16 points in 11 matches here this season. They lost 1-3 here to Leeds in their last match. This sees Leicester start the match as the 5/2 underdogs despite being at home.

Liverpool have taken all 3 points on each of their last 3 visits to the King Power Stadium. While their away form has been a problem this season, they won each of their last 2 matches on the road; both by a 1-3 scoreline. This sees the Reds start the match as the 11/10 favourites to put last Sunday behind them with a win.

No team has drawn more away matches this season than Liverpool, with 5. Leicester, on the other hand, have the fewest home draws in the Premier League with just 1 so far. Odds of 12/5 are available if you see Leicester and Liverpool sharing the points on Saturday.

Leicester v Liverpool in the Carabao Cup

Carabao Cup Third Round match between Leicester City and Liverpool at The King Power Stadium on September 19, 2017 in Leicester, England.

Leicester City vs Liverpool: Match preview

Both teams come into this match with mini-crisis to solve.

Leicester have picked up just 5 points from a possible 12 over their last 4 matches; their worst 4-game stretch this season. Their only victory in that period being against relegation-battling Fulham.

Liverpool, on the other hand, have won just 3 of their last 11 matches in all competitions. One of those victories was against Aston Villa’s youth team in the FA Cup.

They come into Saturday’s game having suffered back-to-back defeats in the league and saw their slim hopes of retaining the title destroyed by Manchester City last weekend.

The Reds will also be aware of how damaging a 3rd consecutive league defeat would be on their hopes of finishing in the top-4 and securing Champions League football again for next season.

While they are currently 4th in the table, defeat here coupled with all the sides below them winning games in hand could see them fall to as low as 9th in the table. This is a reflection on how tightly packed the teams from 2nd to 9th are in the table.

Is Vardy 100%?

Leicester will be hoping that Jamie Vardy has fully recovered from the groin injury that saw him undergo surgery last month. He started his first match since mid-January in the FA Cup against Brighton and only managed 60 minutes of the match.

Vardy has often been the giant-killer for Leicester, with no active player in the Premier League scoring as many goals against the ‘big six’ as the Foxes’ number 9.

For Liverpool, Bobby Firmino is often the man for the big occasion. He doesn’t score as often as some Liverpool fans believe he should, but when he does they are usually crucial goals in big games. His 6 goals against Leicester is more than any other Liverpool player in the Premier League.

Leicester City team news vs Liverpool

While a lot of the media focus is on Liverpool’s injury problems this season, Leicester also have a list of injuries that would rival just about anybody.

Age may finally be catching up with Wes Morgan. He has struggled to stay fit this season and is yet to start a match in the Premier League in 2020/21. He hasn’t featured in the league since November and is currently out with a lower back injury.

Dennis Praet has missed the last 6 matches with a thigh injury. He has been ruled out for several months which means Leicester won’t expect to have him back until mid-April at the earliest.

Wesley Fofana, who is a contender for Leicester’s player of the season, has also been ruled out for another month with a thigh injury.

Timothy Castagne’s debut season in the Premier League has been interrupted by injuries. He is currently out with a thigh injury but is expected back in the coming weeks.

James Justin’s appearance run ends

James Justin is the only outfield player for Leicester to start all 23 Premier League matches so far this season. That run will come to an end on Saturday though.

“He felt a pop in his knee, but hopefully with the medical team having a look at him.”
– Brendan Rodgers, Leicester City Manager

Ayoze Perez suffered a heavy blow on the shin in his last match. He is currently unable to put weight on his leg and has been unable to train normally this week. He is unlikely to recover in time for the visit of Liverpool.

Cengiz Ünder could get a rare start in place of Perez.

Liverpool team news vs Leicester City

The Red’s injury crisis in defence has already been discussed at length by all sections of the media.

Liverpool come into today’s match missing all 3 first-team central defenders on their books at the start of this season. Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez were both ruled out for the season early in the campaign with knee injuries. Joel Matip has since been added to the list having picked up an ankle ligaments injury in January that will rule him out for the season.

As they say though, where there is a problem there are also opportunities. For Liverpool, the opportunities come in the form of Ben Davies and Ozan Kabak. Two players who probably never thought they could be playing Premier League matches for the reigning champions, yet this is the situation the two could find themselves in on Saturday if handed their debuts.

Naby Keita is another ongoing injury problem for Liverpool, pretty much since joining the club. He hasn’t featured in consecutive Premier League matches since starting the first 4 matches this season. The club is understood to be focusing on his core strength to try to escape the vicious circle of injuries he seems to have entered into and therefore no return date has been offered as of yet. He isn’t expected to be involved on Saturday though.

Diogo Jota hasn’t featured for the club since injuring his knee in the Champions League back in December. He is nearing a return to action for the Reds. Although, that could still be a couple of weeks away.
