The two teams met in the English League Cup match, with Leicester scoring a 2-0 win with Okazaki and Slimani scoring. This Saturday, in the Premier League game, the story should be different.
It has not been an easy season start for Leicester. Just one win at home against Brighton and a draw in the move to the Huddersfield,
lead to that all the points conquered by the Foxes are compared to newly promoted teams.
We are not yet close to a tragedy, but Craig Shakespeare is worried about a situation that affects a team that has designed for this season a kind of return to glory, having paid, last season, the price of a hangover from the its greatest moment in history.
The victory in the League Cup game gave breathing space to a team that lives, this season, with the specter of relegation.
But Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool will not have taken the week to be some kind of social worker at Leicester. Also because the Reds also need positive results.
Four games without a win are reason enough to worry. The heavy 0-5 defeat at Manchester City’s ground with the expulsion and consequent suspension of Mane eventually marked this period.
Before losing to Leicester, he drew two home games against Sevilla in the Champions League and Burnley.
Prognosis Leicester vs Liverpool:
At home, Liverpool has no sense, properly speaking, difficulties to score. But they have some defensive deficiencies, which has led them to concede goals in practically every game played.
Leicester, meanwhile, was just left blank in a game. In short, two teams well connected with the goal may end up doing the delights of the fans.
