Our prediction for this Premier League match:
Top position in the Premier League standings will be at stake when Liverpool take on Leicester City at Anfield on Saturday afternoon. The Reds proved their worth in a 1-1 draw with Man City before the international break, with Mohamed Salah scoring his eighth goal of the season. The Egypt international, though, will miss the Leicester City game through coronavirus infection.
Netherlands defender Virgil van Dijk remains in the recovery room as well. In Salah’s absence, a man to watch in the home team will be Sadio Mane, who helped Senegal record back-to-back wins over Guinea Bissau. The Foxes, on the other hand, are eyeing their seventh consecutive win in all competitions. Brendan Rodgers is still doing a great job with the King Power outfit, who are likely to take advantage of Mo Salah’s absence. Ndidi and Soyuncu remain in the recovery room for the visitors.
