This will be dubbed as Brendan Rodgers vs his old club as the Northern Irishman prepares to take on a different Liverpool side that knocked them out of the EFL Cup this week. The Foxes put all their eggs into the Carabao Cup basket but lost to a highly weakened Liverpool side in the quarter finals. A 3-1 lead was squandered as Takumi Minamino equalized late to hand Liverpool a chance at penalties, which they won 5-3.

The Reds, on the other hand, are boosted by the fact that their Boxing Day fixture against Leeds United has been postponed due to a Covid-19 outbreak in the Peacock’s camp. This gives them ample rest to field their strongest available team against Leicester on 28th. The Reds lost 3-1 last season in the league at the King Power Stadium but would want to change that this time around.

Leicester City vs Liverpool Prediction

Leicester are a good team at home but it is clear that they have an issue when playing the top sides. Their composure goes out the window and they are susceptible to conceding goals late on. That’s what happened against Liverpool in the EFL Cup and they will now face a Liverpool team with a far stronger side. We see this game ending in a 2-0 win for Jurgen Klopp and his side.
