Sure, they might be chasing the Premier League title but Liverpool aren’t as big favorites against Leicester as you might imagine. The thing is that the Foxes are true giant slayers. So, before putting any money on this game, make sure to read some betting tips. Below is our Liverpool vs Leicester prediction that should provide you with all the info you need about the clash taking place at the Anfield on Wednesday evening.
They’re currently on the top of the Premier League table but Man City are breathing by their necks. In order to stay there till the end of the season and grab the first title since the Premier League was established, they need to keep on playing well.
And they’ve been playing really well lately, despite starting the year with two consecutive defeats. One of those was in the FA Cup, the other was a defeat to Man City in the Premier League. But, since, the Reds won two matches in the league, which didn’t just bring them points but which also boosted their confidence.
Unfortunately for Reds’ fans is that this team has some problems with injuries. Although it’s not their key men who are struggling with fitness, there are several absent players. And their absence can put a toll on the fitness of regulars. Apart from several injured players, Milner will also have to miss the Wednesday’s match due to a suspension.
On the bright side, Liverpool will have massive support from the stands, which has been a great motivator for their players this entire season. The fact that Liverpool are the only team in the Premier League without a home defeat this season shows the significance their supporters have.
The Foxes are in the middle of the table and will probably stay there. They surely won’t get relegated, while their quality isn’t as good for them to hope for a spot among top 6. Still, this team does have some really amazing players in the team.
Leicester City aren’t in a very good form, but this team always plays best when faced against stronger opponents. This is a team that won against Manchester City and Chelsea this season. They did lose to Liverpool at home, but they were the ones with more goal chances.
Speaking of their record with Liverpool, it’s pretty bad, particularly in the Premier League. Since the Foxes got back to the top English flight after a whole decade, they played 9 league matches against Liverpool. And 6 of those went to Liverpool’s favor.
What’s giving them confidence ahead of Wednesday’s game is the fact that they don’t have too big problems with injuries. Amartey is the only player who is confirmed to be unavailable for the match.
- James Milner (suspension)
- Joe Gomez (injury)
- Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (doubtful)
- Trent Alexander-Arnold (doubtful)
- Georginio Wijnaldum (doubtful)
- Daniel Amartey (injury)

Liverpool vs Leicester Prediction
Leicester City are very tough to score against, but with the help of their fans, Liverpool can beat any opponent. The Reds will probably grab themselves all three points, but we probably won’t see too many goals here. I don’t think Schmeichel will allow more than one or two goals.
