Liverpool Prediction – Can Liverpool maintain lead at top?

Despite recording a 4-3 win in midweek in the Champions League against Austrian side, Salzburg, Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, will have been seething to see his side throw away a 3-0 lead to be pegged back to 3-3 at Anfield by the Austrians, and it was Salah to the rescue in the end to spare Liverpool’s blushes.

Nevertheless, that win became Liverpool’s fourth win on the trot in all competitions, while this Saturday, The Reds will be looking to record an eighth win on the trot in the Premier League when they play host to Leicester City.

7 wins on the trot have lifted Liverpool to the top of the division and this time Klopp and his men will be determined to stay there. The early omens are good as Liverpool have been scoring goals almost at will, with 6 of their 7 wins to date also resulting in over 2.5 goals.

In addition, 12 of Liverpool’s last 15 matches at Anfield have resulted in over 2.5 goals, and the forward trio of Salah, Mane and Firmino have contributed 11 of Liverpool’s 18 goals to date this season.

Leicester City Prediction – Can Rodgers have last laugh?

Saturday’s visitors, Leicester City, will be looking to capture a third win on the trot when they make their way to Anfield with former Reds boss, Brendan Rodgers, returning for the first time in the Premier League to his former club since his sacking from Liverpool.

Having won 4 of their last 5 matches in the top flight with wins against Sheffield United, Bournemouth, Tottenham and Newcastle United (the latter being a 5-0 rout of The Magpies at the King Power Stadium), Leicester have moved up to 3rd spot and just 2 points behind Manchester City.

Foxes manager, Brendan Rodgers, would live nothing more than for his side to put one over his former employers, especially at Anfield, which in turn would be Liverpool’s first defeat on home turf in the Premier League since April 2017 when Crystal Palace beat them 2-1.

Although Leicester have produced mixed results on the road so far this season, the likes of striker Vardy (England’s loss is Leicester’s gain) with 5 goals and midfielders Maddison, Harvey and Ndidi pulling the strings, the visitors should cause Liverpool’s defence a few more headaches this Saturday.
