Leicester News and Form – Can Leicester beat Liverpool?

Despite having taken the lead through Jamie Vardy at the Etihad on the weekend against Manchester City, Leicester ended up losing 3-1. That snapped their great nine-match undefeated streak of form that they had been running on. Vardy though has scored in 9 of their last 10 league games. Leicester do still have an unbeaten home record in this season’s top flight to defend on Thursday. The Foxes will be defending it against the best side in the country as well. Leicester have posted a fantastic W7 D2 home record in this season’s campaign. So will they be able to pose a threat to the Reds?

Liverpool News and Form – Can Liverpool survive a tough test at Leicester?

Liverpool sauntered off to Qatar this week and played two games there in the FIFA Club World Cup. They won their semi-final and then needed extra time on the weekend to lift the trophy over Brazilian side Flamengo. So how much will that extra workload that they have had, on top of all the travelling, affect them on their trip to the King Power? Liverpool are on an eight-match winning streak in the top flight and on a three-match winning streak on the road. After struggling for badly to earn clean sheets this season, they have taken two back to back.

The Reds have averaged two goals per away game this season and have only conceded five goals in their eight road games. They are in a good place. Three-quarters of their away games have made it over 2.5 goals. Considering the week that they have had, this is going to perhaps be the biggest test of Liverpool’s resolve in defending their unbeaten season. Five of Liverpool’s seven away wins this season have been recorded by a one-goal margin. The Reds have opened the scoring in 6 of their 8 away games during this campaign.
