Leicester v Liverpool past meetings

These two sides have met 87 times competitively in their history, with Liverpool winning 34 times (39.1%), Leicester 33 (37.9%) with 20 draws (23%).

Liverpool have lost on each of their last three trips to Leicester, including Tuesday night’s 2-0 defeat in the League Cup.

Last season, the Foxes won the corresponding fixture 3-1 – the first game after Claudio Ranieri’s dismissal – in February, five months after a 4-1 loss at Anfield.

Tuesday’s clash saw two sides who were not at full strength but which were both strong, with each side clearly hopeful of progressing – Shinji Okazaki and Islam Slimani netted the goals for the hosts.


Leicester v Liverpool stats

Liverpool have now gone four games without a win, spanning across three competitions while Craig Shakespeare’s side have not tasted victory in three league matches.

Only two clubs – West Ham and Everton (both 10) – have conceded more goals than both Leicester and Liverpool (9) in the Premier League this season.

All three of the Foxes league defeats this season have come against sides who finished in last season’s top six – which Jurgen Klopp’s side also did.

The home side have only lost this fixture once in the past ten meetings between the two – Liverpool’s 3-1 win at Leicester in November 2014.


Leicester v Liverpool Team News

The hosts will be sweating on late fitness tests for Jamie Vardy (groin), Christian Fuchs (eye) and Matty James (Achilles) while Leonardo Ulloa (neck) is definitely unavailable. Riyad Mahrez is expected to return to the starting line-up.

Liverpool will be without Sadio Mane (suspended), Adam Lallana (thigh), Adam Bodgan (knee) and Nathaniel Clyne (back).

Daniel Sturridge is likely to start up front alongside Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah.



Leicester v Liverpool reason for bets

Neither side is in good form but the hosts will have the psychological edge and confidence boost from the midweek victory.

This, coupled with the home advantage which has proved decisive in the recent history of this fixture, should cancel out the visitor’s superior quality and resources in a game which is genuinely too close to call.

The only aspect of this game which can be said with a degree of certainty is that there will be goals: both sides are quick and incisive in attack while both have major defensive issues.

Klopp’s side have conceded 16 goals in all competitions and it’s still only December, while Leicester’s chaotic opening day 4-3 defeat at Arsenal has set the tone for a rocky start, although they have had a tough run of matches.

Both league meetings last season produced over 3.5 goals and it is logical that this fixture will see a similar number of goals.
