Record: 4-2-1
Position: 3rd

Liverpool will look to make it eight wins from eight games this Saturday when they host a dangerous Leicester City side in Matchweek 8 of the 2019-20 English Premier League season.

While the Reds maintained their perfect record with a scrappy 1-0 win over Sheffield United last weekend, their form over the last few outings has left much to be desired.

Their defensive issues were highlighted in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday night when Red Bull Salzburg reeled in a 3-0 deficit to set up a nervy finish at Anfield.

While Mohamed Salah’s second-half strike gave Liverpool a 4-3 win, Jurgen Klopp will want to see much greater focus and defensive discipline when Leicester come to town.

The Foxes sit third on the Premier League table with four wins from seven games, with their only loss of the season so far coming to Manchester United.

While it is early days yet, the 5-0 thrashing of Newcastle United last time out showed that the 2015-16 EPL champions mean business this term.

Leicester have also picked up points against Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, beating the latter 2-1 when they met at King Power Stadium two weekends ago.

This fixture will hold special significance for Brendan Rodgers, who returns to Anfield for the first time since his sacking as Liverpool coach in October 2015.

Liverpool team news

Joel Matip sat out on Wednesday night after picking up a knock in the win at Sheffield. He is no certainty to return against Leicester, which means Joe Gomez may stay on at centre-back despite an iffy showing against Salzburg.

Xherdan Shaqiri is still nursing a calf problem, while star goalkeeper Alisson Becker is still one or two weeks away.

Leicester City team news

James Maddison missed the win over Newcastle due to an ankle injury, but the star midfielder is a good chance to return for the trip to Merseyside.

Leicester have no other injury concerns besides Matthew James, who is out for the foreseeable future with an Achilles problem.

Liverpool vs Leicester goalscorer odds

Roberto Firmino first goalscorer – +350 at Bovada
He might not be the most prolific of Liverpool’s vaunted forward trio, but Bobby is the man in form. He set up Mo Salah twice in midweek and should find a few opportunities for himself on Saturday.

Jamie Vardy anytime goalscorer – +188 at Bovada
Leicester’s star striker will fancy his chances against a Liverpool defence that is yet to gel this season. Expect Vardy to drift towards the left flank and look for space in behind whichever of Gomez and Matip starts.

Liverpool vs Leicester betting predictions

Liverpool to win/both teams to score – +188 at Bovada
Klopp’s Reds are so hard to beat at Anfield and should notch another win this weekend. Their recent second-half fadeouts are a concern, however, so do not be surprised if Leicester hit the scoreboard and make a real game of it. For what it’s worth, Claude Puel’s Foxes held Liverpool to a 1-1 on Merseyside in January this year.
