  • Liverpool to win: 5/6
  • Draw: 11/4
  • Leicester City to win: 13/5

What is our prediction?

With Liverpool’s four full-backs decimated by injury, returning manager Brendan Rodgers may never have a better chance of getting one on the club that sacked him five years ago last month. However, if Klopp’s improvised defense faces, their expected line of attack from Sadio Mané, Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota have the capacity to punish any lack of focus from Leicester City. The result? Liverpool 2 Leicester 2.
