Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Liverpool will be looking to build on a thrilling 5-0 win over Swansea City when they take on Leicester City in their last game of the year. The Reds have been scoring goals for fun in the 2017/2018 Premier League campaign and duo Mohamed Salah – Coutinho has been in a perfect working order. Liverpool are likely to stick to their attacking style of play and seeing that Leicester City are not regarded as good travelers, we predict that Jurgen Klopp’s men are going to give fans yet another reason for celebration this weekend. The Foxes suffered a 2-1 loss to Watford on Boxing Day and, taking everything into account, they are unlikely to grab something from Saturday’s football match against the high-flying Reds. When the two teams met at King Power Stadium in the first half of the season Liverpool recorded a 3-2 win over Leicester City.
