Liverpool Team News and Latest Form

Liverpool are on a 16-game winning run in the Premier League, and they need just two more wins to tie Manchester City’s record of 18 matches. The Reds scored the first goal and/or been up after the opening 45 minutes in six of seven EPL games so far. Four home matches have produced 20 total goals (5.0 on average), all featuring a minimum of four goals and both teams scoring.

Although they are clear favourites, Liverpool have allowed at least one goal in nine of 12 competitive games this term. Significantly, Liverpool have conceded late consolation goals (and the last goal of the match) to their opponents in four of seven Premier League rounds this year.

Mohamed Salah has scored in all three home games thus far, with three of those four goals coming in the second 45 minutes. Jurgen Klopp will be without Nathaniel Clyne (knee) and Alisson (calf), while Xherdan Shaqiri (calf) and Joel Matip (knock) are listed as doubtful.

Leicester City Team News and Latest Form

Led by former Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers, Leicester enter Round 8 in third position thanks to winning four of their previous five Premier League games. The Foxes scored at least two goals in all four victories. Since Rodgers took charge, Leicester have yielded strong league results against last year’s top six teams (W2, D2, L1).

Additionally, Leicester under Rodgers are yet to lose a PL match by more than one goal, with three of the four losses suffered during his tenure ending 1-0 to the winning side. They have, however, allowed at least one goal in 12 of 17 league games under Rodgers.

Jamie Vardy will also be looking forward to this match. He has scored seven goals in his previous six encounters against Liverpool! Four of Leicester’s five conceded Premier League goals in this campaign have arrived in the opening 30 minutes of play.

Liverpool vs Leicester City Premier League Betting Pick

Liverpool are firm favourites to get three points and continue with their perfect start of the season. Considering their H2H record against Leicester and home form, my Premier League Betting Pick for this tilt is Liverpool to win at 1.50 (-200). However, it’s not going to be a smooth win for the Reds as the Foxes know to make things difficult for top teams in England. They managed to find the back of the net in five of the last six visits to Anfield. That’s why my additional pick for the braver punters is Liverpool to win and both teams to score at 2.87 (+187).
