Liverpool have been one of the best-attacking sides this season, and they once again demonstrated their attacking prowess with a 5-0 demolition of Swansea City on Boxing Day.
It is at the back where Jurgen Klopp’s side have struggled, and the Reds have attempted to rectify that by completing the record-signing of Virgil van Dijk from Southampton. However, the Merseysiders would have to do without the Dutchman when Leicester City visit Anfield on Saturday.
Nevertheless, the Reds are unbeaten in 14 games in all competitions, and we expect them to extend that run against the Foxes.
Liverpool, who have scored 12 goals in their last three games, sit in the fourth spot with 38 points. Only one point separates them from Tottenham and Arsenal, and hence, it would be vital for them to collect all three points this weekend.
After experiencing a resurgence under Claude Puel, the Foxes appeared to have run out of steam in the recent weeks. In their last three games, they have picked up a solitary point, and they lost 1-2 at Watford on Boxing Day. Although, in their penultimate game, they drew 2-2 at home against Manchester United. Ahead of the visit to Merseyside, the Foxes find themselves in the eighth spot with 27 points.
Earlier this season, the Reds claimed a 3-2 win over Leicester at King Power Stadium.
