Our match prediction:
Leicester City not only remained at the Premier League summit, but they opened up a three-point lead thanks to an impressive 3-0 triumph over very good Stoke City, and they go into the high-profile match in much better mood than the opposition. While Riyad Mahrez has been struggling for form, Jamie Vardy has rediscovered his scoring boots and with Claudio Ranieri's charges playing with a great deal of confidence anything is possible. Liverpool, on the other hand, have experienced all sorts of problems of late, and they were quite fortunate to win at Norwich City and also secure their progress to the Capital One Cup final. Even though Jurgen Klopp managed to rest some key men at the weekend, the Reds are still missing some important players and are completely out of form. With that in mind, we don't think they can put a dent into Leicester's title bid.
