Leicester v Liverpool Betting Tips & Preview

Can Liverpool maintain their 100% start at the King Power?

Liverpool showed their gritty side by beating a well-organised and resilient Brighton side 1-0 on Saturday. Jurgen Klopp’s side were not at their free-flowing best against The Seagulls, but ground out a victory to further their title credentials. They face another tough challenge at Leicester, against a side who have registered good wins against Wolves and Southampton so far.

 

The Foxes will be without Jamie Vardy due to suspension, which is a massive blow, particularly as he has scored seven times in eight matches against Liverpool. Kelechi Iheanacho will continue deputising, but it’s the talent behind him which will prove to be Leicester’s best chance of finding them net themselves.

 

James Maddison and Demarai Gray have enjoyed good starts to the season, and are Leicester’s main creative outlets. Maddison in particular is eyeing up an England call-up after a very promising start.

 

Liverpool’s trip to Leicester is their toughest assignment yet, and this is where their run of clean sheets will end. I’m backing both teams to score in this early kick-off.

If Liverpool are going to win this one, they’ll have to do it the hard way. Their trip to Crystal Palace had just the single goal in it until stoppage-time and their game against Brighton was settled by one goal too.

 

In seasons past, Liverpool were known for their soft underbelly and general inability to grind out wins against these so-called lesser teams.

 

They may be turning a corner this season - showing they can break down these resilient sides looking to keep them out – and I’m expecting Liverpool’s overall quality to be telling here. They’ll win, but by a single goal.

He’s not scored yet this season – that’s been left to Mo Salah and Sadio Mane so far – but Roberto Firmino is due a goal. Of course, he brings so much more to the table than goals alone, but he will be keen to build on the 27 goals he scored in all competitions last season, a personal record.

 

Firmino has scored twice against Leicester before, and I’m backing the Brazilian to score first on Saturday, which will provide you with some lovely price-boosted odds.
