TheSportsRush brings Leicester City vs Liverpool prediction, as Liverpool aim to maintain their position at the top of the league.
Table-toppers Liverpool are having a dream start to the Premier League season, and will now march on to travel to the King Power Stadium to face Leicester City on Saturday. The Foxes, who are ranked seventh, will provide for a brilliant encounter between the two clubs, as TheSportsRush brings up the prediction of the upcoming game this weekend.
Liverpool have won all three opening games of the league so far, and have carried on their form from last season. The Champions League finalists have started the league season in command, winning all three games scoring seven times while also maintaining clean-sheets in all of those games.
The Reds’ attacking stalwarts continue their swashbuckling form, with the trio of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino carrying on from where they left last season. Liverpool were tested when Brighton arrived at the Anfield last weekend, as Mohamed Salah’s strike was the only difference between the sides at full-time.
Despite losing a close encounter in their opening game against Manchester United, Leicester City bounced back in the next two games, winning the games against Wolverhampton and Southampton.
With the departures of big names including Riyad Mahrez to Manchester City this summer, Claude Peul has found unlikely heroes in the team, with Harry Maguire scoring a late winner against Southampton while James Maddison scored in the game against Wolverhampton.
Leicester City will now be looking to continue their impressive form and stop Jurgen Klopp’s men from continuing their onslaught in the Premier League. The Reds edged out the Foxes both times in the Premier League last season, winning the games 3-2 and 2-1. With both teams comprising of attacking stars, this will provide for an entertainer for the fans across the world.
Liverpool’s close victory over Brighton & Hove Albion will boost the morale of the Reds’ defense, who were severely tested by a Brighton side that beat Manchester United 3-2 in their previous fixture.
On the other hand, Leicester City scored a late injury-time winner through Harry Maguire against Southampton, and won the game in the absence of star striker, Jamie Vardy. Now with the English striker imminent to return, Claude Puel’s men will test the Liverpool defense which has been strong so far this season.
