Liverpool will continue its hunt for the title as it welcomes Leicester City for a mid-week clash in the Premier League 2021-22season.
After a shock loss in the reverse fixture at the King Power Stadium towards the end of last year, Liverpool is unbeaten in its last 7 games across competitions. These include victories against Brentford and Crystal Palace in the top flight, as well as a fourth-round victory against Cardiff City in the FA Cup. This means that the team is now 9 points away from the leader Manchester City, with an extra game in hand.
Despite missing key players like Mohammed Salah and Sadio Mane who were representing their respective countries in the AFCON, Liverpool has put up consistent performances so far in the season, and it wouldn’t be surprising if the title race goes down to the wire.
The same however cannot be said about the Foxes, as they have not won any Premier League game in the New Year. Leicester City's previous game against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup saw them crash out of the 4th round after a 4-1 loss, and was an `embarrassment´ according to coach Brendan Rodgers. The team now finds itself at a lowly 10th place, 4 points behind Brighton.
However, Leicester has played only 20 games till now, as it saw some of its games getting canceled due to COVID outbreaks. A European finish is still 11 points away, and the team will need to collect as many points as they can from now on if they want a respectable finish.
Match prediction and betting tips for Liverpool F. C. vs Leicester City F. C. Premier League 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Anfield Stadium, Liverpool, on 10th February 2022.
Brendan Rodgers will be a relieved man as he welcomes back key African players Daniel Amartey, Wilfred Ndidi, and Kelchi Iheanacho from the AFCON. However, Jamie Vardy, Timothy Castagne, Fofana, Ryan Bertrand, and Jonny Evans remain doubtful for this key clash. The coach is likely to feature a 4-3-2-1 formation for this game.
As for the hosts, African stars Salah and Mane are eager to get back on the field, but their return cannot be guaranteed in this game. Chamberlain and Joe Gomez who had tested positive for CoViD have now recovered and should be available for selection.
The Foxes can be a tricky customer, capable of throwing surprises. However, we predict that Liverpool might hold an edge in this close encounter. The odds being offered by the best football betting sites seem a bit short on Liverpool to win but we think Leicester's loss to Nottingham Forest has really destroyed the confidence of the market in its ability to put up a fight.
Bet on Liverpool to win.
