Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Monday’s football game between Leicester City and Liverpool will bring down the curtain on the Premier League round 36. The Foxes aim to recover from a 5-3 loss to Fulham, but they face yet another difficult task against Jurgen Klopp’s troops. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team, but all Justin Vestergaard, Braybrooke, and Iheanacho remain on the sidelines with injuries.
The Reds, on the other hand, aim to climb to the Champions League berth and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in the King Power Stadium showdown. Since Liverpool are on a six-game winning run in the national championship, we predict that they will take advantage of Leicester’s shaky defence. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Mohamed Salah, who scored the winner against Brentford, while both Thiago and Bajcetic remain in the recovery room. Both Keita and Firmino are major doubts.
Highlighted Player (Jamie Vardy):
Spending his early career playing no-league football, Jamie Vardy made the headlines when he joined Leicester City in a £1 million deal in 2012, but little did he know that he would go on to become a genuine Premier League star just three years later.
The experienced forward helped the Foxes gain promotion to the elite division and then score more than 20 goals as they mounted an unlikely title bid, earning worldwide acclaim as well as a place in the England squad. Vardy went on to score his first two goals for the Three Lions in March 2016 friendlies, with his back-heel goal against Germany in Berlin seeing him instantly become a fans’ favourite.
Over the years, Vardy has earned a reputation as a striker who never gives up and can be a real menace for opposition defenders, but his excellent goalscoring record and good link-up play are enough to suggest he can be described as a mix of old-style pacey forwards and modern strikers.
Highlighted Team (Liverpool):
Founded back in 1892, Liverpool are one of England’s and world’s most famous clubs. The Reds hold a high-profile rivalry with Everton and there have always been fireworks when the two teams take on each other in the Merseyside derby.
The Reds welcome their opponents at Anfield and it has to be noted that they have already won 18 first division trophies. Liverpool were on the verge of lifting the 2014/2015 Premier League trophy, but Steven Gerrard slipped in the decider against Chelsea and left the Reds without a title.
Liverpool won one of their last Champions League trophy's in 2005, with the team coming from three goals behind to beat Milan in a historic clash in Istanbul. The Reds have clinched six European Cups and it is no surprise they are regarded as one of the greatest European clubs.
The likes of Steven Gerrard, Robbie Fowler, Paul Ince, Ian Rush, Graeme Souness, Sami Hyypia and Luis Suarez are some of the most notable footballers to have represented the club over the years. The club’s anthem is You’ll Never Walk Alone and their shirt colour is red.
