Liverpool vs Leicester: Predictions

Jurgen Klopp has the chance to make Liverpool history this weekend with his side just one result away from surpassing the Reds’ longest unbeaten home run in the top flight. As it stands his side currently sit on 63 unbeaten league games at Anfield in a row, which matches the record set between 1978 and 1980, but 40 years ago Leicester ended that streak, and they will be hoping to do so again on Sunday.

The Foxes have been in stellar form of late, recovering from a slight wobble in October to beat Arsenal, Leeds and Wolves on the bounce. Wins in Europe over AEK Athens and Braga have also fallen in that time, meaning Brendan Rodgers enters this match in confident mood.

Such has been their form that Leicester currently sit at the top of the table. Meanwhile Liverpool are just the single point behind and will be eyeing up a statement win to follow on from a commendable point at the Etihad against Man City just before the international break.

Klopp’s managerial resolve has been stretched to the limit this season with the Liverpool boss enduring a number of injury problems. Mohamed Salah is the latest to occupy the sidelines for Klopp, but he will be hoping his depleted squad can still get the job done this weekend.

Liverpool vs Leicester: Match Stats

Jamie Vardy will be licking his lips at the prospect of facing Liverpool, which is testament to his ability as not many players enjoy such success against the reigning champions. Indeed the 33-year-old has netted seven goals in 11 Premier League games against the Reds, with only Andy Cole (11) and Thierry Henry (eight) finding the back of the net more against Liverpool.

And he may find his name on the scoresheet sooner rather than later as Liverpool have conceded more first-half goals than any other Premier League side this season (11). By contrast they have only let in five after the restart, the fewest of any club.
