Liverpool enjoyed a 3-1 win over Cardiff at the weekend, the Reds completely dominated the game even with a much weaker side put out.
It was nice to see Harvey Elliot back on the pitch after a horrific incident earlier in the season where he dislocated his ankle against Leeds, not only did he get back on the pitch but he also scored a magnificent volley which will be just what a player needs when returning from an injury of that magnitude.
Leicester had three outings cancelled last month so they only played three out of a possible six games, which may explain their lack of match sharpness in the recent 4-1 defeat to Nottingham Forest. From the first whistle Leicester didn’t look in the game and their players seemed completely disinterested, leading for manager Brendan Rogers shortening in the market for next manger to leave his post.
These two sides faced each other twice over the festive period, with Leicester looking the more promising over the two clashes.
The Foxes were up 3-1 in the Carabao Cup before letting their lead slip and losing on penalties, though they made no such mistake a week later in the league as they held on for a 1-0 win thanks to Ademola Lookman.
The midlands side will take great confidence from those two games considering the injury problems they were contending with at the time, while Liverpool also still had Sadio Mane and Mo Salah who hadn’t shooted off to AFCON yet.
+2.5 Goals / +3.5 Goals
Whenever these two teams play one another there seems to be a big theme of goals, since the start of the 2016/17 season, six of the last 13 games between the two have had +3.5 Goals markets come off and 10/13 have had +2.5 Goals markets come off.
To add to this, 59% of Liverpool’s PL games this season have had +3.5 Goals and 45% of Leicester have had the same result.
Both Teams To Score
BTTS seems like a great market to get on for this game also because not only has it come off in nine out of their last 13 games between the two but also 100% of Leicester’s PL away games have seen both teams scoring and three out of the four home games Liverpool have played against top 10 opponents have had this come off as well.
