PREVIEW: Leicester V Liverpool

Liverpool face Leicester in a 12:30 kick off on Saturday in what will be Klopp's fourth match of the season. A duo of draws on Thursday evening allowed the Reds to find out who was in their Champions League group and who they would face in the League Cup. Both results meant that Liverpool's fixture list in September and October has suddenly got a lot busier.

And so, it would be useful for the Reds to start September with a win. Leicester have lost just one of their opening games, a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Manchester United at the start of the season. The foxes are currently 7th in the table on six points, three points behind the Reds who remain top of the table.

Injuries for Liverpool mean they are still without defender Dejan Lovren who remains out with a pelvic issue. Jamie Vardy sits this one out as he serves a three match ban and Matty James is unavailable due to an Achilles injury.

The last time the two sides met was in December last year at Anfield. The Reds went down after just three minutes when Vardy found the back of the net but Mo Salah scored a brace in the second half to seal the victory.

Our last trip to the King Power Stadium produced another win for the Reds. This time a 3-2 win with Henderson, Coutinho and Salah on the score sheet. In their last five games away to Leicester, the Reds have picked up one draw, two wins and two losses.

Stat Sandwich

  • If Liverpool win on Saturday, it will be the first time they've opened the season with four wins in a row since 1990.
  • The Foxes have lost their last 10 matches in the league against sides that started the day at the top of the table.
  • The Reds have only faced 19 attempts on goal so far this season.
I think it could be a tricky one tomorrow but I still think Klopp will walk away with a win. Leicester are a decent side and Liverpool are still building up to their full pelt, for that reason I'll be popping some money on 2-1.

Enjoy the match folks, wherever you are watching!
