This draw left Leicester on the third line in the standings so far. Brendan Rogers' team is already seven points behind the leading Manchester City and at the same time played more for the match than a competitor. But the distance to the second Manchester United is only two points.
In the current championship Leicester are performing better in away matches than in their home arena. More than half of their points were scored on the rivals' fields. At home Rogers' wards earned 16 points in 11 matches, which is only 37% of the total 43 points. At home Leicester managed to win five times, ended one match in a draw and lost five times. It should be noted that in the current league season Leicester have lost six matches and almost all of them at home (five).
For the Foxes defenders James Justin, Timothy Castagne and Wesley Fofana, as well as midfielder Dennis Prat, will not be able to take part in the match due to injuries.
To be honest, given how powerful the Citizens look now, Liverpool have practically no chances to defend the championship title. Before the upcoming round the Lersysides occupy only fourth place in the standings. They are already ten points behind Manchester City and have played one more match. However, there is still a serious struggle for a place in the top four. Chelsea, Everton, West Ham and Tottenham are practically close by.
Jurgen Klopp's players are not impressive on the road either. On the rivals' fields the Reds won only four of 11 matches in the Premier League. They ended in a draw five more matches and lost in two. This is only the tenth best away game in the current championship.
Liverpool central defenders Joel Matip, Joseph Gomez and Virgil van Dijk, as well as forward Diogo Jota have been injured for a long time and will not play in this meeting.
Our prediction is a total over 2.5 goals for 1.79 in BC 1xBet.
