Leicester vs Liverpool: Without doubt, the most anticipated showdown the day after Christmas, Liverpool tries to deprive Leicester of three points for the second time this season. However, with the hosts at their best on national soil, get ready for nothing less than exciting ninety minutes.
Leicester succumbed to his third loss of the season last week, on the road, after the defending champions had a remarkable return, falling from goal to break to record a 3-1 victory in the final game. whistle.
Despite a solid start in this last showdown thanks to Jamie Vardy, who broke the deadlock, the hosts were bitten by former Leicester end Riyad Mahrez, who tied City to a draw. Their counterparts quickly doubled their advantage thanks to Ilkay Gundogan before the break, while the last nail in the coffin came thanks to Gabriel Jesus, after the restart.
With thirty-nine points in the bag, the home team plays the second violin in Liverpool with a deficit of ten points on the scale.
Meanwhile, Liverpool will head to King Power Stadium after its success in the Club World Cup. The hosts simply show no signs of slowing down their national campaign. Currently, they are only the undefeated team in the Premier League.
Their last home game saw them score two goals unanswered after Watford. Along the way, they won a comfortable 3-0 victory over Bournemouth.
It should also be mentioned that Liverpool lost points only once away from home this quarter. No wonder they are the best external side of the group.
In addition, visitors were not wrong to obtain bragging rights during their last two visits here. Given the fact that the three points were in his favor when the two also met in October, Liverpool is in the process of qualifying among the favorites to get ahead.
Anyway, Leicester has not stumbled at home yet this season. In addition, the hosts would have recovered a point during their confrontation in Anfield, if it had not been for a controversial kick kicked against them in the last minutes of downtime.
Therefore, a no draw is the safest clearance this week.
In addition, the objectives were not difficult to achieve when these two teams were in the field. So far, guests have found the bottom of the network sixteen times along the way. Meanwhile, nineteen of the forty-one goals for Leicester came from their home games.
To top it all, the likes of Jamie Vardy, Mo Salah and Sadio Mane are also in red. As such, do not expect any of the parties to leave the ninety minutes with a blank sheet intact this Thursday.
