For this week’s Premier League betting tips, PlayersBest’s expert team are focussing on Leicester City vs Liverpool. The supergalactic clash sees third meet fourth in the Premier League, with a win taking the Foxes six points clear of their opponents. The Reds, in contrast, could go four points clear of fifth with a victory.
With so much at stake, this match is a tough one to call. Luckily for you, we have analysed the formbook and all the relevant stats to craft the best Premier League betting tips the UK has to offer. Read on to find out how Saturday’s game could go.
After faltering badly at the end of last season, hopes were not particularly high going into the current campaign for Leicester. However, Brendan Rodgers’ side have defied expectations so far. Racking up 13 wins and four draws from their opening 23 games, the Foxes have staked a serious claim for the second top four finish in their history. In a big boost for their chances, both Jamie Vardy and Wilfred Ndidi are set to start against Liverpool. The pair are Leicester’s two most important players and relish the big stage.
Yes, they have suffered injuries. Yes, their players are fatigued. And yes, they have been affected more than most by fixture congestion. Despite all this, Liverpool’s defence of the Premier League title has been feeble. They go into this one 10 points adrift of leaders Manchester City, who thrashed them 4-1 last time out. One bright spot in the Reds recent history has been the additions of Ozan Kabak and Ben Davies. It looks likely that the former will play against Leicester, which should allow Jordan Henderson to step into midfield and restore some balance to their system.
These two famous, old clubs have met on many occasions. In the 115 previous meetings, Liverpool have enjoyed a slight advantage, winning 51 games to their opponents 39. 25 have ended in a draw. In more recent games, though, the Reds have completely dominated, winning six of the last seven. The last two matches have ended 7-0 on aggregate to Liverpool. This included a humiliating 4-0 victory on Boxing Day 2019 when Jurgen Klopp’s side pretty much confirmed their status as champions. You have to go back to September 2017 for Leicester’s last win over Liverpool.
If you wish to become the best football tipster in the galaxy, there is no substitute to analysing all the relevant statistics for each match. These numbers often hold the key to accurate predictions. Here are five that stood out ahead on Saturday’s meeting.
We are going for a draw here with Jamie Vardy to score anytime.
Although Liverpool have been in dire form recently, we still expect them to get something at the King Power Stadium. The addition of one of their new centre-backs to their backline should add some balance to their setup. However, their away record is not the best, and with Leicester looking good this season, it is unlikely that the Reds have enough to secure the three points. With that in mind, we cannot look past a draw for this one.
That is not the only thing you should include on your betting slip however. Vardy is one of the best strikers in the galaxy and after some time out of league action he will be desperate to net. We expect him to do exactly that, so backing him to score anytime is a solid choice.
