Betting prediction: Liverpool 2 – 1 Leicester City

The Reds welcome Leicester to Anfield on Sunday for this Premier League match.

 

This match features the current Premier League Champions versus the current 2020/21 League leaders.

 

Liverpool have an excellent record against Leicester. They have 15 wins to the Foxes’ 7 in the Premier League. The most recent 6 matches between them have resulted in Liverpool picking up 16 points from a possible 18.

 

Leicester have a 100% record on their travels so far this season, winning all 4 of their away matches. This includes impressive away wins at Manchester City, Arsenal and Leeds United.

 

The Reds are the only side with a 100% home record in the Premier League, picking up 12 points from 12 so far. You need to go back to April 2017 to find the last defeat at Anfield for Liverpool in the Premier League.

 

Since that 1-2 defeat to Palace, they have gone 63-matches unbeaten. Should they avoid defeat against Leicester on Sunday, they would set a new club record of 64 matches undefeated.

Liverpool vs Leicester City: What are the betting odds?

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are considered the strongest home side in the Premier League. Since the start of the 2000/01 season, they have won 7 and drawn 2 of their 9 home matches against Leicester. This sees them start Sunday’s match as the odds-on favourites at 10/11 on.

 

Leicester have already beaten Manchester City on their travels this season, who were the favourites at the start of the season to win the title. Can they add the scalp of the current Premier League Champions too? Their odds of 13/5 at the start of the match reflect the difficult challenge they face to do so.

 

The Foxes are one of only three sides yet to draw a match in the Premier League this season. Odds of 3/1 are available if you see Liverpool and Leicester cancelling each other out on Sunday though.

Liverpool vs Leicester City: Recommended bets

The Reds won the previous match against Leicester at Anfield 2-1. 101 Great Goals’ prediction of another Liverpool 2-1 Leicester is available at odds of 17/2.

 

Liverpool hammered Leicester 0-4 when these clubs last met back in December 2019. A repeat of this score on Sunday is available at odds of 40/1.

 

Leicester’s last win at Anfield was back in May 2000. You can back them at 22/1 for the same 0-2 scoreline here on Sunday.

 

Liverpool vs Leicester has been a high-scoring game in recent seasons with 5 of the last 6 matches seeing over 2.5 goals scored. You can back another high scoring game here on Sunday with odds of 4/7 on for over 2.5 goals.

 

Diogo Jota has been in red-hot form for Liverpool since his transfer to the reigning champions this summer. He has scored 6 goals in his last 5 appearances for the Reds. With Salah missing the game due to a positive COVID-19 test, and having had a relatively light workload over the international break, Jota looks certain to start on Sunday. The Portuguese international is 5/1 to score the game’s opener on Sunday. Or 11/8 to bag a goal at any time during the game against Leicester City.

 

No player scored more goals against the ‘big 6’ in the Premier League than Jamie Vardy. He has often been a thorn in Liverpool’s side, scoring 7 goals in 11 appearances against the Reds in his career. However, Vardy last found the net against them back during the 2017/18 season and has only been on the winning side on 2 of 11 occasions. The former England international is the favourite of those in blue to get on the scoresheet at 21/20. You can back him at 4/1 to grab the game’s opening goal.

Liverpool vs Leicester City: Match preview

The media have given a lot of attention over the international break to Liverpool’s injury crisis in defence. Their entire starting back four are currently injured as well as several of the options to replace them.

 

Their first-choice centre-back pairing of van Dijk and Gomez are likely out for the rest of the season due to knee injuries. Right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold is also out until mid-December with a calf-injury. Left-back Andrew Robertson also struggled with a hamstring on international duty with Scotland.

 

In addition to this, potential understudies to these players such as Jordan Henderson, Fabinho and Rhys Williams have their own injury problems to contend with. Injuries in midfield to Thiago, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain have limited Klopp from utilising midfielders in defence as he has done in the past with James Milner, Gini Wijnaldum and Henderson.

 

The big concern of course is that injuries limit your ability to prevent further injuries in the squad. Joel Matip, for example, has struggled to stay fit for long stretches of games during his Liverpool career so far. However, as he is Liverpool’s only fit senior central defender, he will likely be playing every 2 or 3 days between now and January. Without any rest, rotation or relief from the substitutes bench, the chances of him suffering another injury are very high.

An eye on the visitors

Leicester’s situation looks a much better one at the moment. They are top of the league in spite of the fact Ricardo Pereira, Demarai Gray, Cengiz Ünder, James Maddison, Daniel Amartey, Hamza Choudhury, Wilfred Ndidi, Kelechi Iheanacho, Christian Fuchs, Timothy Castagne and Caglar Söyüncü have not played much football for them this season.

 

With most of those who were injured nearing a return and plenty of relief players with fresh legs available if required, they look in a good place right now coming into the busiest part of this Premier League season.

 

Jamie Vardy has perhaps become an advert for the benefits of having no international football to contend with. At the age of 33-years-old, where many predict a decline for goalscorers, he is still thriving and sits atop of the Premier League scoring charts once again with 8 goals already this season.

 

He has scored in each of his last 4 appearances for Leicester in all competitions and has a reputation as a giant slayer. Vardy underlined this point when putting Man City to the sword with a hat-trick back in September.

 

Leicester don’t have a great record against Liverpool and the superiority of Liverpool shone through in both matches last season. Even if it wasn’t reflected in the scoreline at Anfield.

 

As cliché as it sounds though, there may never be a better time to face the reigning champions.

Van Dijk Virgil van Dijk during Liverpool 2 - Leicester 1

Liverpool team news vs Leicester City

Virgil van Dijk (above) remains on the long-term injury list for Liverpool due to his ACL injury. Although, the club confirmed this week that he has begun his rehabilitation. There is still a long way to go and he certainly won’t kick a ball in anger for at least 7 months.

 

Joe Gomez got injured in a training session for England during the international break. He has since undergone surgery on his patella tendon which rules him out for the rest of the season.

 

Trent Alexander-Arnold was unable to complete the match against Manchester City prior to the international break due to a calf strain. He is expected to be out until December.

 

Andrew Robertson only featured in one of Scotland’s matches during the international break due to a tight hamstring. While it isn’t expected to rule him out for Sunday, it’s possible Klopp opts not to risk him with Greek international left-back Konstantinos Tsimikas fit once again.

 

Fabinho hasn’t played for Liverpool since October due to a thigh injury. His social media posts over the international break suggest he is nearing a return but likely won’t be ready for Sunday.

 

Rhys Williams has been deputising for van Dijk in the Champions League for Liverpool this season. The 19-year-old centre-back withdrew from the England U21 squad due to a hip injury. It is believed this was more a precaution though. He could be on the bench on Sunday.

 

Jordan Henderson could only make it to half-time of England’s Nations League match against Belgium. He felt some tightness in his thigh which caused him to miss their final group match against Iceland. Klopp is unlikely to risk him at the weekend with such a hectic schedule ahead for the Reds.

 

Thiago Alcantara, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain were all pictured in training during the international break suggesting Klopp’s midfield could get some much-needed reinforcement in the coming weeks. Whether any of them will be available for the weekend remains to be seen.

 

Mohamed Salah tested positive for the Coronavirus while on international duty with Egypt. Unless he has a negative test prior to Sunday, he will miss out here.

Leicester City team news vs Liverpool

Daniel Amartey has been out since the beginning of October with a hamstring injury. He is ruled out of contention for Sunday’s trip to Anfield.

 

Caglar Soyuncu is also ruled out of contention for the match against Liverpool. Although, Brendan Rodgers (above) had some good news regarding the injury and possible return date in his press conference.

“Thankfully, didn’t need the op. He’s doing some mobility and flexibility work outside. We’re hopeful that he might be available at some time before Xmas.”
– Brendan Rodgers, Leicester City Manager

 

Wilfred Ndidi has been out of action since September having suffered a serious groin injury which required surgery. He is expected back towards the end of this month for Leicester.

 

Ricardo Pereira is nearing a return to action for the Foxes. He has been out for over 8 months with a knee injury. He is unlikely to be thrown straight into the starting lineup after such a long injury lay-off. Therefore, a place on the subs bench at best is expected here.

 

Timothy Castagne has missed Leicester’s last two matches with a hamstring injury. However, the international break came at a good time for him and he is expected to start on Sunday.
