Tip Reasoning

  • Leicester have scored in 19 of their last 22 games.
  • Both teams to score has landed in four of Liverpool’s last five away games and in two of their last three away wins.
  • Liverpool have won eight of their last 10 away games in all competitions.
  • Liverpool are averaging 3.11 goals per-game away from home in the Premier League.

Another huge test for out-of-sorts Leicester

Leicester were beaten by Manchester City in a nine-goal thriller on Boxing Day and they face another stern test on Tuesday as Liverpool visit the King Power Stadium.

The Foxes have lost three of their last five games in all competitions and went down on penalties in the EFL Cup quarter-finals to Liverpool at Anfield last week. That fixture as the visitors’ last outing as their own Boxing Day assignment was postponed, and as such Liverpool have the advantage of a few extra days rest ahead of Tuesday’s clash.

Both sides have a number of selection problems and Leicester are likely to be without Wesley Fofana, James Justin, Ryan Bertrand, Jonny Evans, Ricardo Pereira, Caglar Soyuncu, Patson Daka and Harvey Barnes. However, Jamie Vardy could return to the starting XI and Wilfred Ndidi and Boubakary Soumare may also be involved from the off.

Virgil van Dijk, Fabinho and Curtis Jones could return for Jurgen Klopp’s men after returning to training but Andy Robertson is suspended and Harvey Elliott, Adrian, Nat Phillips, Divock Origi and Thiago Alcantara are absent through either injury or illness.

Foxes to fall short again

Leicester may be in poor form but they’ve had some incredibly tough games and their performance against City in Manchester suggests they can cause Liverpool problems.

The Foxes have only failed to score in three of their last 22 games so they should be able to find a way through against a Liverpool side who have conceded in five of their last seven games, but I’m still expecting the visitors to take maximum points back to Anfield and a Liverpool win with both teams to score looks a good option in this match-up.

Both teams to score has landed in four of Liverpool’s last five away games and in two of their last three away wins, while both teams have scored in the last two meetings between these two sides.

Liverpool can win with room to spare

Leicester go into this game after a hard-fought encounter with Manchester City and the quick turnaround may well work against them here. Liverpool have had a six day break since these two teams met in the EFL Cup, and they have been in great form on their travels with eight wins in their last 10 games in all competitions away from home so they should be able to pick up a win at Leicester.

Liverpool are averaging 3.11 goals per-game away from home in the league and have conceded nine goals in as many Premier League trips, so a 3-1 win for the visitors looks the way to go in the correct score market.

Leicester predicted lineup: Schmeichel, Thomas, Amartey, Vestergaard, Castagne, Ndidi, Tielemans, Soumare, Perez, Vardy, Iheanacho

Liverpool predicted lineup: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Tsimikas, Henderson, Fabinho, Keita, Salah, Jota, Mane
