Liverpool vs Leicester Betting Tips
Seven rounds have passed and Liverpool are at the very top of the table with 21 points. The Reds have won every single match in the Premier League so far this season, which shows that they have serious intentions this time. Last season, Manchester City barely got away with the title, but this time, the Reds are determined to win their first title since this championship has changed its name to the Premier League back in the early nineties.
Although they’re huge favourites against almost any team in the league, the trouble is that their next opponent is Leicester City. And this team has been in a tremendous form lately. The Foxes are currently at the 3rd place on the table with 14 points. And they’re coming to Liverpool after getting two straight wins in the league, namely against Tottenham and Newcastle. The game against the Magpies saw Leicester scoring five times, while also keeping a clean sheet.
Last season, Leicester finished on the 9th place at the Premier League table, thus not getting a spot in Europe. Because of that, they didn’t have to play continental any matches mid-week, which means their players had one entire week to rest and prepare for the clash with Liverpool. The Reds, on the other hand, played a Champions League match on Wednesday.
The game in question was the one played at the Anfield against RB Salzburg, in which the Reds quite surprisingly struggled. The final score was 4:3, showing that Liverpool might have some issues at the back. Allowing three goals at home to a team from Austria seems just too much. In addition, Liverpool have also conceded a goal in five of the seven Premier League games they played this season. And when it comes to their games against Leicester, the Reds have allowed at least a goal in every single meeting with the Foxes since 2015.
