Leicester City were defeated in their previous outing as they lost 3-1 away from home against Manchester City. Leicester City took the lead early but failed to stop Manchester City from scoring 3 goals. Leicester City were the weaker side during the defeat as they only had 37% of the ball and 2 shots on target. Jamie Vardy was the star player for Leicester City as he scored the goal for the team. It has been a good season for Leicester City as they sit 2nd on the Premier League ladder. Despite their standing, this is expected to be a tough match for the Foxes since they are playing against a very strong team in Liverpool.

Taking everything into consideration, I am going to pick Liverpool to win this match. Leicester City are a strong side but I don’t see them having enough quality to compete with Liverpool. Leicester City were outclassed but Manchester City and I see a similar result from this match. I see Liverpool leaving Leicester with all 3 points.
