Game Liverpool vs Leicester begins 05.10.2019 at 16:00 CET
Reigning champion of Europe still has perfect score in the Premier League. Liverpool won all seven matches although it had problems in some of them. They also played two matches against London based teams; they defeated Arsenal 3-1 at home and Chelsea away by 2-0 two rounds ago. In the previous round they again won by minimal result new Premier League member Sheffield.
It was expected to easier triumph in that match but there were a lot of problems and Wijnaldum scored only 20 minutes before the end for three points. The Reds lost to Napoli away in the first round of the Champions League and that increased pressure ahead of match against Salzburg. They took a lead with 3-0 and it seemed that will win with ease but instead they unexpectedly received three goals made their situation complicated. Still, Salah scored the fourth goal and they won in the end. Stopper Matip didn’t play because of injury and he is questionable for this match too, so the starting line-up may easily stay the same like in the previous round..
Probable lineups Liverpool: Adrian – Alexander-Arnold, Gomez, van Dijk, Robertson – Henderson, Fabinho, Wijnaldum – M. Salah, R. Firmino, S. Mane
Leicester had a good start of the season and third place in the table is a reward for good performances. They lost away to Manchester United y minimal 1-0 three rounds ago and they drew twice at the beginning of season. They drew with Wolverhampton, which competes in the Europa League and Chelsea, which plays in the Champions League. They have won four times and the most valuable is the one they against Tottenham from two rounds ago. The Foxes were trailing behind in that match but Pereira and Maddison scored and turned the result up-side down. They played the best match in the previous round against Newcastle.
They won in front of their fans by even 5-0, but they had a lead of only 1-0 before one of Newcastle players was sent off near the end of the first half. Leicester maximally used the numerical advantage in the second half and filled the guests’ goal to the top. Pereira again scored and Vardy excelled with two goals. Maddison was injured and couldn’t play. Praet replaced him and the change couldn’t be felt. Maddison is still questionable and it is logical to expect that no changes will take place in the starting line-up.
Probable lineups Leicester: Schmeichel – R. Pereira, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell – Ndidi – A. Perez, Praet, Tielemans, Barnes – Vardy
Betting Pick: Liverpool vs Leicester
Liverpool continues to win but it doesn’t play at top level lately. They are rather lucky and it seems that will soon slip for the first time. Leicester is ready to put Liverpool’s weak day in a good use and we forecast that Liverpool will not have an easy stroll at its Anfield this time.
