Our prediction for this Premier League match:
On boxing day the clash between Liverpool and Leicester City will take place at 15:00 on Anfield Road. Liverpool manager Jorgen Klopp was unable to beat the weak Watford and lost without having any real chances 3-0. Leicester City on the other hand was able to stunt again; this time the team was to strong for Everton and beat the Toffees 2-3. Leicester City is currently the leader in the Premier League with 38 points out of 17 games. Liverpool on the other hand is placed 9th and did not manage to win any of their last 3 games which is quiet a surprise after the good start with the new manager. We predict Liverpool to keep Leicester City at a 1-1 draw on Anfield Road. Leicester City is currently the team to beat. If players like Benteke, Coutinho and Henderson are in form the Reds should be able to make it a difficult afternoon for Leicester. The home advantage will play a big role in this clash.
