Leicester vs Liverpool Preview:

Relegation battling Leicester welcome a top-four chasing Liverpool side at the King Power Stadium on Monday night. The 5-3 loss to Fulham coupled with positive results to sides in and around them saw Leicester slip down to 19th in the table now. Although they have a game in hand over their other relegation rivals, the upcoming games for the Foxes don’t particularly look inspiring. Although, with just a two point gap between themselves and 17th placed Everton, a win tonight will take Dean Smith’s men out of the relegation zone. The Foxes will be hoping to take advantage of Liverpool’s leaky defense – and with a leaky Newcastle who have kept just one clean sheet in their previous 17 matches and European-competition driven West Ham to come in the next two weeks, Leicester could be optimistic of avoiding the drop. Dean Smith’s side however haven’t been inspiring themselves, with the team struggling at both ends of the pitch. With no clean sheets in their last 20 league games, they will have to focus on scoring more than they concede. Leicester also have the second worst home record in the league, with only the Saints faring worse.

Liverpool moved a step closer to the top 4 zone with a close, hand earned victory over the Bees, courtesy of Mo Salah’s 19th Premier League goal of the season. Manchester United’s win over Wolves saw the Red Devils now have a four point gap between themselves and Liverpool having played the same number of games. A win tonight would mean they move one point off Ten Hag’s side. Jurgen Klopp’s side have been on a rich vein of form as well, on a six-game winning run. Despite the defensive woes, they have kept two clean sheets in their last two matches – earning hard earned 1-0 victories in both matches. Alexander-Arnold has flourished in his new role in midfield and with the front three getting back to good goal-scoring form as well, this should seem like a routine victory for the Reds. Klopp’s side have lost on their last two visits to the King Power and will seek revenge this time around with both sides having a lot to play for.
