Leicester have had a relatively kind fixture list on the road, but while they're W3-D4-L0 against bottom-half teams, they've lost all three trips to the top 10 – the latest of which came at Watford last time out. In fact, they're just W1-D1-L11 away at top-half sides since the start of last term, and so we expect them to struggle at Anfield where Liverpool remain unbeaten.

Both Teams To Score

Klopp's team will enter this game on a high after thumping Swansea 5-0, and they've now scored 12 times across their last three as the fab four have clicked. They should have plenty of joy against a Leicester rearguard that's shipped 10 goals in their last five, though as ever the Foxes have plenty of firepower of their own, netting 13 in their last six road trips as both teams scored in each of these games

Match Result and Both Teams to Score

Indeed, each of the last three league meetings between these two have seen at least four goals, with Liverpool coming out on top at Anfield last term and at the King Power earlier this season. Given Liverpool's current purple patch in front of goal, we're expecting something similar here, and so we're backing the home win and both teams to score

Anytime Goalscorer

No player has been as effective on the counter for Leicester as Riyad Mahrez recently, with the Algerian winger netting four times in his last five road trips, and so represents their biggest threat on the break. We’re frankly surprised to see his Leicester teammates Leonardo Ulloa, Islam Slimani and Kelechi Iheanacho ahead of him according to the bookies, despite none of them being guaranteed starters.
