WHello, and welcome to our live blog for Liverpool vs Leicester, a game that maybe maybe maybe maybe but not really, but which could be very important in ultimately deciding the title. Liverpool are the team most likely to win the league this season, but it’s been such a strange year, they don’t have any more defenders, the momentum from last season is sort of gone … and really n anyone could win it. Why not Leicester?
Brendan Rodgers has almost won the title with Liverpool once before and his Leicester side are currently above them in the table. A win would create a four-point gap, which doesn’t tell us much but could give his players the confidence to run. It only takes a few wins in a row to create that momentum that Liverpool piloted in 2019/20 and while injuries will almost certainly affect all clubs, hurting those with smaller squads like Leicester, you never know.
Of course, if Liverpool win that, we’ll be back to somewhere close to what people predicted before the first kickoff in September. Spurs will remain in the lead because of the goal difference unless something crazy happens at Anfield. What does Brendan Rodgers think of a title push?
“I didn’t even think about it,” he said this week. “We only played eight games.
“We got off to a good start, but for us what’s really important, and I’ve talked to the players to bring them all back after international homework, is that we continue to be really honest in our approach to games. , to work as hard as possible, to keep the humility that we have in the squad and to prepare as best we can for each game. “
