GKs Adam Bogdam and Danny Ward will be missing this game. Moreover, Liverpool will also miss CMF Jordan Henderson, RB Nathaniel Clyne, LB Alberto Moreno due to injuries. They are currently on the 4th rank with 38 points. A win will make their position secure until next match day. A defeat or draw can put them at risk of major downfall as they are only 1 point ahead of Tottenham and Arsenal on respectively 5th and 6th position.
Foxes will miss out CB Robbert Huth due to injury. They will also miss Daniel Amartey due to suspension. Their RB option Danny Simpson is also out, which is a big concern for them. They are currently on 8th rank with 27 points. In order to maintain their position, a win is much for them.

Liverpool vs Leicester Predictions
Historically no one has an advantage here. Liverpool is in great shape. Moreover, Leicester is also catching the momentum after a bad face. However, they lack consistency a lot. On the other hand, Liverpool is unbeaten since over a month. The game can go either side, however, we expect a win for Liverpool, which is not going to be easy at all.
Final Score 3 – 2
