Liverpool host visitors Leicester City at Anfield in the Premier League fixture on Sunday.
All Liverpool v Leicester City game predictions, stats and user poll are shown below - as well as up-to-date odds.
Liverpool will play in this fixture after a 1-1 Premier League drawn result versus Manchester City.
In that game, Liverpool managed 46% possession and 10 shots at goal with 3 on target. The scorer for Liverpool was Mohamed Salah (13'). Manchester City had 7 attempts at goal with 2 on target. Gabriel Jesus (31') was the scorer for Manchester City.
Their latest results reveal that quality has been evident in the Liverpool rearguard. The Reds have kept it tight, with the tally of goals that have gone past their goalkeeper during their previous 6 outings standing at 3. However, time will tell if that trend shall be sustained in this next match or not.
Taking a look at their past results, Liverpool:
- have not been beaten in the league by Leicester City in their last 6 matches.
- are undefeated in their last 63 league matches at home. A fantastic home record.
Leicester City will come into the match following on from a 1-0 Premier League win vs Wolverhampton Wanderers in their most recent game.
In that match, Leicester City managed 49% possession and 10 attempts at goal with 3 on target. The only player on the scoresheet for Leicester City was Jamie Vardy (15'). For their opponents, Wolverhampton Wanderers got 7 shots at goal with 2 on target.
A series of hard-working performances by the Leicester City defensive unit has seen the number of goals they’ve conceded standing at 2 from their last 6 fixtures combined. Over that same period, the number of goals that they have scored themselves amounts to 15.
A look at their previous results shows us that Leicester City:
- have not beaten Liverpool when they have played them away from home in the previous 9 league matches. A very poor set of away results, indeed.
- are undefeated in their previous 4 league matches away from home.
Head to head
A review of their past head to head meetings stretching back to 23/09/2017 tells us that these encounters have not been kind to Leicester City. They’ve not been able to come away with any wins whatsoever whereas Liverpool have been too good for them, running out winners in 83 per cent of those matches played.
A total of 20 goals were scored between them in this period, with 14 of them for The Reds and 6 coming from The Foxes. This gives an average number of goals per game equal to 3.33.
The previous league fixture featuring the two was Premier League match day 19 on 26/12/2019 when it ended Leicester City 0-4 Liverpool.
That time, Leicester City had 41% possession and 3 attempts on goal with 0 on target.
On the other side, Liverpool had 15 shots on goal with 6 of them on target. Roberto Firmino (31', 74'), James Milner (71') and Trent Alexander-Arnold (78') scored.
The referee was Michael Oliver.
Team News: Liverpool
Andrew Robertson (Unknown Injury), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Knee Injury), Mohamed Salah (Corona virus), Trent Alexander-Arnold (Calf Injury), Virgil van Dijk (Ruptured cruciate ligament) and Joe Gomez (Patella problems) are not available for Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp.
Team News: Leicester City
Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has to choose from a squad that has some fitness concerns. Caglar Söyüncü (Tear in the abductor muscle), Ricardo Pereira (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) and Timothy Castagne (Hamstring Injury) will miss out on this game.
Our assessment is that Liverpool will, in all likelihood, have the majority of the possession and should be able to turn a few of their chances into goals.
At the same time, Leicester City are also probably going to find it difficult to score a goal of their own although we do think that they will probably end up pulling one back during this clash, too.
We therefore think that it’s going to be a fairly comfortable 3-1 victory for Liverpool at the end of the 90 minutes.
