Liverpool vs Leicester City – English Premier League – Preview

Posted on by Sreya

The English Premier League leaders Leicester City travel to Anfield to face Liverpool on Saturday, 26th December. Liverpool, who are on ninth position with twenty-four points are winless in their last three domestic matches, falling to a crushing 3-0 defeat against Watford last weekend.

The high-flying Leicester City are on thirty-eight points and must win to keep their lead over Arsenal, who play later on Saturday.

Team News

Adam Bogdan’s first Premier League appearance for Liverpool was a forgettable one and he will be replaced in goal if Simon Mignolet is fit enough to return. Daniel Sturridge, Dejan Lovren, James Milner, Martin Skrtl, Joseph Gomez and Danny Ings are sidelined through injuries while Jon Flanagan is yet to regain complete match fitness.

Robert Huth returns from suspension for the visitors, but Leicester City have travelled without Jeffrey Schlupp, Daniel Drinkwater and Mathew James. Jamie Vardy has been listed as a doubt after he picked up a knock against Everton.

Liverpool Possible Starting Lineup: Simon Mignolet, Nathaniel Clyne, Kolo Toure, Sakho, Alberto Moreno, Lucas Leiva, Jordan Henderson, Roberto Firmino, Philippe Coutinho, Adam Lallana, Christian Benteke.

Leicester City Possible Starting Lineup: Kasper Schmeichel, Danny Simpson, Wes Morgan, Robert Huth, Christian Fuchs, Riyad Mahrez, Andy King, N’Golo Kante, Marc Albrighton, Shinji Okazaki, Jamie Vardy.

Contributor’s Pick

Leicester City have won seven of their last eight matches in the Premier League. Leicester City have scored at least three goals in their last four away matches in the Premier League, while Liverpool have conceded at least two goals in their last three matches in the Premier League.

According to Head-2-Head statistics, Liverpool are undefeated in their previous six matches against Leicester City in all competitions. However, the Foxes have been at a different level this season and are likely to win against the injury-plagued Kops on Saturday with 2-1 being the most probable scoreline.

“I have big respect for Claudio and the whole squad of Leicester. There’s big respect from both sides. He will always stay successful in his managerial career. They deserve the run they are in. It’s good defending and nearly perfect counter-attacking football, it’s really quick and high quality.

They don’t need too many chances to score goals. They have two obvious strong strikers with perfect runs, no injuries, can go all week and they have a long week to train and recover. It’s really deserved and I’m not surprised anymore, nobody is. It’s no coincidence, it’s really hard work.”

– Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool.
