Liverpool vs Leicester City Preview

Liverpool vs Leicester City

Competition – Barclays Premier League

Stadium – Anfield

Date: 30th December 2017

Kick-off time – 15:00 GMT

Liverpool returned to their brilliant goal scoring best in their last League game as they thrashed Swansea City 5-0.

They have struggled especially at home recently with draws against the likes of Everton and West Brom but their attacking talents are undeniably top quality and the 46 league goals they have netted this season is second only to Manchester City in the division.

Liverpool’s attack has been particularly unstoppable recently as they have scored 12 goals in their last three league games.

Defensively, they remain suspect and they are the highest conceders in the top seven this season.

Leicester City head to Anfield with hopes of netting a couple of goals.

The Foxes have netted in 8 of their last 9 competitive games but just like their host, they have conceded goals willingly as they have failed to keep a clean sheet in their last 6 league games.

They lost their last game 2-1 against Watford – a loss that means they have not won any of their last three league games.

They have been impressive away from home as they have lost only one of their last 8 away games.

Leicester will be hoping to inflict Liverpool’s first loss at home this season.
