Liverpool will be desperate to get their Premier League season back on track when they travel to the King Power Stadium to take on Leicester on Saturday.
The Reds’ title bid is all but over after last weekend’s 4-1 home defeat against Manchester Ctiy, leaving them to focus on securing a place in the top four.

Having won six and lost none of their last seven encounters against this opposition, they are 11/10 (2.10) favourites with bet365 to leapfrog them into third with a welcome victory here.
However, Brendan Rodgers’ men have lost just one of their last 12 matches in all competitions and are available at 5/2 (3.50) to move six points clear of his former club by coming out on top.

Ozan Kabak and Ben Davies are both in contention to make their debuts, although Diogo Jota and Naby Keita remain doubtful despite returning to training and Fabinho, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip, and Virgil Van Dijk are definitely ruled out.

Leicester vs Liverpool Preview
Having struggled for goals recently, Jurgen Klopp’s team will be looking forward to taking on a Foxes side they have put nine past in just the last three encounters – particularly because of Leicester’s defensive absentees.
Indeed, Rodgers’ men have only kept two clean sheets against top-half opposition this season, conceding 18 times in those 11 fixtures.
On the other hand, the champions’ well-publicised injury crisis in defence should offer plenty of opportunities for Jamie Vardy and team mates, who have not failed to score in any of their last 13 fixtures.
Leicester vs Liverpool Tips and Predictions
Considering 13 of Liverpool’s last 15 league goals have come on the road, odds of 20/21 (1.95) seem like solid value on them both scoring and conceding in their ninth Premier League meeting with Leicester in 10 to feature three goals or more.
