Liverpool vs Leicester Preview and Livestream

Liverpool are the in-form team in all of Europe at the moment, with the Merseysiders on a hot run of 8 successive wins in all competitions. Playing with a high tempo and intense pressing is one thing, but maintaining it throughout all matches is an altogether different one, and Liverpool thus far have shown that they are willing to do both this season. Better luck with injuries, a sizzling frontline and Jordan Henderson’s return to the midfield have all played an instrumental part in making the Reds many pundits’ favourites for the League. They will know that this is their best team in years and thus, go all in for available silverware this time around.

Leicester, on the other hand, are struggling with inconsistency and COVID among their ranks. Brendan Rodgers’ men sit in a lowly 9th place in the league and have failed to replicate the spark from past seasons. However, seeing off Newcastle in their last match by 4 goals must surely have done wonders to their confidence and they will hope a good cup run is just the boost they need to kickstart their campaign.

Injuries: With back-up goalie Adrian and bit part players Divock Origi and Nat Phillips the only players currently in the treatment room, Liverpool have definitely had better luck with injuries this season than the last. Harvey Elliott remains the only long-term absentee.

COVID-19: However, they haven’t been blessed with the same luck in terms of COVID infections. Virgil Van Dijk, Fabinho and Curtis Jones all returned positive tests for the virus and are unlikely to take any part in the fixture against the Foxes.

Liverpool vs Leicester Prediction

Liverpool have been exceptional during the past few weeks and there is no evidence to show they won’t replicate that level of performance despite a few changes to the squad. This, coupled with the Leicester squad severely hit by COVID and injuries, is enough to make us believe it will be a comfortable 2-0 win for Liverpool who will advance to the semis of the competition.
