Can this Liverpool Buck Rodgers?
The former Liverpool boss has realistic hopes of guiding Leicester to a league finish above the Reds. Three points for the hosts today would make that more likely.
The tough games with a weakened side keep coming for Liverpool. PaddyPower are offering 8/1 on Leicester winning this one 1-0, 2-0 or 3-0 and it makes for an interesting bet.
The champions’ goalscoring woes are well documented with just 8 goals scored in their last 9 in the league. Klopp’s ability to address that will probably depend on when he decides to bring recognised, but untested centre-backs into the starting line-up. They need Henderson and Fabinho back in midfield, and the latter is missing today regardless.
Leicester’s last three league victories have all come by 2-0, and they’ve kept three clean sheets in a row across all competitions. Throw in the return of Vardy and they should be fancied here.
