Liverpool – Leicester City
We are heading to the Anfield where Liverpool will face Leicester City in a match from the 24th round of the English Premier League. Stay with us and these football prediction betting tips today. Here we go!
Liverpool are currently 9 points behind Manchester City in the standings, but they also have a game in hand. This means that nothing is over for the Reds just yet – they can make one final push for the title. That’s exactly what Jurgen Klopp’s team is doing lately – they won their last two matches against Brentford and Crystal Palace. Beating City for the title would be hard, but it still not impossible.
Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp confirmed that Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane should be back in the team after their participation in the African Cup of Nations. They both played in the final between Senegal and Egypt, but it was Mane who triumphed with the trophy. Most likely they won’t start against Leicester, but they should be on the bench.
Leicester City will look for improvement after failing to win neither of their last three games in all competitions. Their last game was particularly disappointing as they suffered a heavy 1-4 defeat against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup. Leicester were the reigning champions in the competition, but their visit to the City Ground turned out to be a very unpleasant experience.
In the Premier League the Foxes are not having a good season, too. Leicester are 10th in the standings with 26 points which does not respond to their usual ambition. Times are hard for the manager Brendan Rodgers who is put under pressure at the moment.
That’s the football prediction betting tips today for the Premier League clash between Liverpool and Leicester City. The Reds will try to use Leicester’s lack of confidence in their favour. Let’s see if they can.
