Since then, both teams have had very different results. Liverpool’s last 2 games in the Premier League were against Brentford and Crystal Palace, which they won 3-0 and 3-1 respectively. It would be fair to say that Liverpool is currently on a good streak of form.
Unfortunately, 𝗟𝗲𝗶𝗰𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝗵𝗮𝗱 𝘂𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗿𝘄𝗵𝗲𝗹𝗺𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗳𝗼𝗿𝗺𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗲𝘀. They lost to Tottenham 3-2, before drawing 1-1 against Brighton.
Other than just revenge, 𝗟𝗶𝘃𝗲𝗿𝗽𝗼𝗼𝗹 𝘄𝗶𝗹𝗹 𝗱𝗲𝘀𝗽𝗲𝗿𝗮𝘁𝗲𝗹𝘆 𝗻𝗲𝗲𝗱 𝘁𝗼 𝘁𝗮𝗸𝗲 𝗮𝗹𝗹 𝟯 𝗽𝗼𝗶𝗻𝘁𝘀 𝗳𝗿𝗼𝗺 𝗟𝗲𝗶𝗰𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝘁𝗼 𝗸𝗲𝗲𝗽 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗶𝗿 𝘁𝗶𝘁𝗹𝗲 𝗵𝗼𝗽𝗲𝘀 𝗮𝗹𝗶𝘃𝗲, as 𝗠𝗮𝗻𝗰𝗵𝗲𝘀𝘁𝗲𝗿 𝗖𝗶𝘁𝘆 𝗰𝘂𝗿𝗿𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗹𝘆 𝗹𝗲𝗮𝗱 𝗯𝘆 𝟭𝟮 𝗽𝗼𝗶𝗻𝘁𝘀. With Chelsea’s chances all but gone, Liverpool are the last hope for keeping the Premier League title race competitive.
We believe that going into this match Liverpool will be feeling extra confident as Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane return from the AFCON Cup, giving a big boost to their firepower. Harvey Elliott also returned to action after being unable to play for 5 months due to an ankle injury. He also scored in his returning game.
Liverpool will have most of their squad available except for Divock Origi, who is doubtful as he recovers from muscular problems. This will be a huge boost to Jurgen Klopp in such an important match.
While attacking duo Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane are available, it remains to be seen if Jurgen Klopp is willing to risk them back in action so soon after a gruelling campaign at the AFCON. Takumi Minamino and Diogo Jota will likely be leading the charge for The Kop.
Meanwhile, Wesley Fofana, Jonny Evans, Ricardo Pereria, and Jamie Vardy are still out due to injuries, and won’t be available against Liverpool.
However, this will not impact Leicester too much, as the same people have been out of action in Leicester’s previous encounter against Liverpool.
With both teams almost at full strength, this is sure to be a close game. While Leicester have no hopes of making it to the top 4, Brendan Rodgers will be looking for a win at his former club. As for Liverpool, losing the match will mean gifting Manchester City the EPL title.
We believe that Liverpool has this one in the bag, and will walk away with a 3-1 win over Leicester.
