Liverpool’s 100% record
This weekend’s big Premier League match sees unbeaten Liverpool pitted against 3rd placed Leicester City. Liverpool have made a perfect start to their campaign by winning all 7 of their matches so far and they’ll want to maintain that start with victory against Leicester and keep Manchester City at bay.
With Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester Utd all struggling so far this season, Leicester have a great chance of qualifying for the Champions League, if they can maintain their strong start to the season. They famously have experience of upsetting the big boys with an historic Premier League winning season in 2015/16.
Injuries and suspensions
Liverpool will still be without The 2019 Best FIFA Goalkeeper Alisson Becker who is still recovering from a calf injury. 2nd choice keeper Adrian will continue in his place. Winger Xherdan Shaqiri and centre-half Joel Matip are expected to be ruled out due to injuries. Leicester have no major injury or suspension worries at the moment.

Liverpool are likely to continue their four-match unbeaten streak against Leicester on Saturday, but they will have to defend better than in their midweek match against RB Salzburg where they conceded three second-half goals. Currently, Liverpool are 1.45 to win. Leicester will hope to take advantage of a weakened Liverpool backline with the in-form midfield pair of Youri Tielemans and James Maddison. With 7 goals in 10 games against Liverpool, Jamie Vardy will be looking to continue his great record against them and Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp will see him as Leicester’s biggest threat. He’s currently at 2.80 to score at any stage during the game.
Liverpool have possibly the best-attacking trio in the world. Sadio Mané, Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah could well be wreaking havoc among the Leicester defence and you can back Mané to score any time on Saturday at 2.05.
In what is likely to be an intriguing contest, Liverpool are still favourites for any game on their home turf. Expect it to be a tight Liverpool victory with both teams getting in on the goalscoring action. We’re tipping Liverpool to win and BTTS at odds of 2.57.
