Liverpool vs Leicester Betting Tip and Predictions. In the one of the most interesting matches this weekend in Premier League, Liverpool host leader Leicester.
Liverpool started to play better after they appointed Jürgen Klopp as a new manager, but their recent performance is very poor. Team from Anfield failed to win in their last 4 matches in all competitions and they desperately need points to move up on the table from their current 9th position. Title is far from their reach, but Liverpool still have a chance to finish the season at the top 4 and play in the Champions League next season.
Bad news for Klopp is the absence of their key defender Martin Skrtel, but Dejan Lovren is fit and he should play alongside Mamadou Sakho in defence.
Talking about opponent, Jürgen Klopp says: “It’s good defending and nearly perfect counter-attacking football, it’s really quick and high quality. It’s really deserved and I’m not surprised anymore, nobody is.”
Leicester can’t stop surprising with their performance. It’s too early to predict the new champion, but Leicester proved that they are very serious candidate to win the title this season. They lost only once this season and won 11 of 17 matches (11-5-1).
Vardy and Mahrez both exploded and scored together 28 of 38 goals for Leicester City this season. In the previous two rounds they had two very hard tests and they passed it successfully. First they beat Chelsea at home, while in the previous round they took three points away against Everton.
Shinji Okazaki should be again in the first eleven after he hit the net against Everton last week. Good news for Claudio Ranieri is that Robert Huth back from suspension and should start this match.
Talking about pressure Ranieri is not worried about it and once again said that their primary goal this season is 40 points (they have 38 points before this match). “It’s stupid if we have pressure. Why? Enjoy it. All the world are speaking about you. When we achieve 40 points we’ll stop for one second and have a meeting.” – he said.
