Match: Leicester – Liverpool Preview, Predictions and Betting Tips
Date: February 2, Tuesday, 2016
Start time: 19:45 GMT
The leader in the Premier League Leicester City hosts Liverpool in the match of the 24th round of the “Premiership”. “The Foxes” are inspired by magnificent victory over Stoke City last weekend and Tuesday night will seek new success against faltering team of Jürgen Klopp.
Leicester had more than a week to prepare for this game, unlike their opponents Liverpool have played two games during that time. Liverpool suffered against Stoke success in the tournament for the League Cup and the finals at the weekend made 0:0 West Ham at home FA Cup replay and waiting.
Claudio Ranieri’s side will seek to consolidate their place at the top of the Premier League in the forthcoming meeting. Foxes lost at Anfield on Boxing Day, but has since recorded five games unbeaten in the league, winning two of them. Jamie Vardy finally scored in the last round after six games without a goal and increase his account on 16 goals for the season. England striker would be a huge threat to the defense of Liverpool and guests should be very careful with him. Leicester will also seek to take advantage of set-pieces against Liverpool, which is experiencing many difficulties in such situations, but Wes Morgan and Robert Huth will surely benefit from inaccuracies in the defense of the opponents.
Liverpool added another game to their busy schedule, after failing to beat West Ham in the fourth round of “FA Cup” and will visit “Boleyn Ground” for replay. Jürgen Klopp made a lot of changes in the composition against “hammers” and holders received a break before the visit of the “King Power Stadium.”
Roberto Firmino is in great form with four goals in his last three matches in the Premier League. The Brazilian will again start up front after Christian Benteke once again not impressed with his performances on the field against West Ham.
The team of Liverpool is so unpredictable that you can expect everything from the upcoming match. I think we will see goals in both doors as guests played poorly in defense this season, but while Firmin, Lala and company do well in the forefront lately.
