Liverpool are making a lot of positive noises right now, both on and off the pitch. 

They won their first game back after the restart, beating Aston Villa 3-1 away from home in what looked like a potentially tricky encounter.

The Reds then confirmed the signing of Cody Gakpo, a forward who starred for the Netherlands at the World Cup and was rumoured to be joining Liverpool’s rivals Manchester United. It’s been a good week, then.

For Leicester, it seems to be one step forward and one back for Brendan Rodger’s men. The World Cup probably came at the wrong time, having won six of their previous seven games in all competitions.

Now, it seems that they must build their momentum once more. Key players remain unavailable and with tough fixtures like Liverpool, things don’t get any easier for the Midlands team.

Liverpool FC Preview

Reasons to be cheerful:

     Have scored eight goals in their last three league games

     Won nine of their last 12 home games against Leicester

Reasons to be fearful:

     Have kept only four clean sheets in their last 19 league games

     Several players remain out through illness throughout the team

After a troubling start to the season for Liverpool, where they won just four of their opening 12 league games, the Reds now look like they’re back in business.

Against Leicester, they’ll be eyeing up their fourth league victory on the bounce, which would take them closer to the Champions League places they so desperately need to achieve.

Jurgen Klopp’s men have had to deal with injuries throughout the season and remain without key players like Dias, Jota and Firmino. Ibrahima Konate should be fit to return here, however.

Darwin Nunez has impressed Klopp of late, although fans have been disappointed by the amount of chances he has missed in front of goal. 

He’ll need to become more clinical if Liverpool are to rise up the table – they have away trips to Brentford and Brighton to come, with a home game against Chelsea to finish off the month.

Star Man – Mo Salah

It took Salah just five minutes after the World Cup to score his first goal for Liverpool against Aston Villa. The Egyptian has had a sparkling 2022 and holds the key for his team to achieve great things again this season.

Leicester City Preview

Reasons to be cheerful

     Have beaten Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool a record five times in all competitions

     Won their last three away games without conceding

Reasons to be fearful

     Multiple players out injured including Maddison, Evans and Justin

     Looked poor in their 3-0 defeat to Newcastle

Having won six of their seven games leading up to the World Cup break, there was plenty of positive around Leicester City once again.

Unfortunately, the break appears to have come at the wrong time for Brendan Rodger’s men. The 3-0 defeat to Newcastle will have knocked the wind out of the sails, a game in which they looked poor all over the pitch.

They are missing James Maddison, a player who has been their standout this season and someone who unlocks defences like few others in the league. They may struggle to hold onto him in the summer.

Long-term injuries include the experienced Jonny Evans, James Justin, Ricardo Pereira and Ryan Bertrand, alongside Dennis Praet who misses out here. 

Star Man – Harvey Barnes

Is only just behind Maddison in terms of goal involvements for Leicester this year and can help inject pace in the Foxes’ attack. 

     Liverpool will boss possession

     Foxes could struggle to contain Reds

     If Liverpool score early it’s game over

You worry for Leicester if Liverpool score early, as they did against Aston Villa a few days ago.

Salah proved that Liverpool are back in business after a tricky start to the season. It wouldn’t be much of a surprise to see Liverpool go on a winning run that sees them push into the Champions League places.

Leicester are missing too many important players to challenge right now. Maddison is so important to them while Daka doesn’t have the consistency of Jamie Vardy in his prime.

Liverpool should turn on the power and win comfortably.
