Liverpool vs Leicester City Betting Preview – 30/01/2019

Liverpool vs Leicester City

Liverpool returns to Anfield this Wednesday where they look to maintain their lead at the top of the Premier League with a win against Leicester City. The Premier League season is now 23 games deep and Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool sit up in first place where they currently hold a four-point lead over Manchester City. Claude Puel is in danger of losing his position as Leicester manager and now needs a win more than ever, but with Liverpool, as their next opponents, it may be a case of damage limitation. When these sides met at the King Power Stadium, Leicester City narrowly lost out 2-1.

With the end of the Premier League nearing each game becomes more and more important especially for those in the title race. Jurgen Klopp will be desperate to keep his four-point lead intact and will need to secure three points from these sort of fixtures. Liverpool’s form in 2019 has only been a fraction of what it was throughout 2018, as they lost their first two games and then only narrowly beat both Brighton and most recently Crystal Palace. The Reds will arrive as clear favourites for this fixture and can be backed with Bet365 for 2/9. If you are confident in their ability, then SkyBet has Liverpool to win with a -2 handicap at 6/4.

Liverpool have been defensively strong for the majority of the season with them conceding just 13 goals, which is the lowest in the league but in the last five games, they have become sloppy with them conceding eight goals. With the likes of Mo’ Salah upfront, Liverpool is bound to cause Leicester defensive problems. The forward has bagged six goals in his last seven matches for his side and has been priced at 4/7 with Bet365 to score anytime in this Premier League clash. Four of Liverpool’s last five matches have seen them score and concede and Betway have BTTS at 21/20.

Leicester City sits up in ninth place after 23 games and due to their recent poor form, Claude Puel is at risk of losing his seat as manager at the club. Over the last five games, the Foxes have secured just one win which came against Everton and their defeats came to sides that they should be beating, which includes; Cardiff City, Southampton and Newport County. Their latest defeat came to Wolves who won 4-3. SkyBet has priced Leicester to win at 11/1.

The Foxes may not be in the best of form but their opponents have also been struggling to hit top gear so there may be a chance to secure a point from this fixture. All three of Leicester’s last three games have seen over 2.5 goals scored and with Liverpool prone to conceding recently you may want to back over 2.5 goals. Bet365 are offering 8/15 for over 2.5 goals. Jamie Vardy remains his sides top goalscorer with seven goals and Betway has him to add to his tally priced at 16/5.
