Liverpool and Leicester to Draw

Both teams enter this game with injury problems, although Leicester is having more issues since they have also been hit with coronavirus. However, Liverpool is more focused on the title race in the PL and we don’t expect to see their strongest team, while Leicester also had a few days off since their match over the weekend was postponed.

With that in mind, a draw sounds like the most reasonable outcome in this game, although a draw only happened once in the last five meetings between Liverpool and Leicester.

Liverpool and Leicester to Draw at Half Time

Since we expect this match to end in a draw, we can also see the teams being tied at half time. After all, that is the most common half time result for matches that end without a winner.

The last draw between Liverpool and Leicester was also a draw at half time, which bodes well for our prediction for this game. And since both teams will miss a number of first-team players, we can see the first half being a bit tame.

Both Teams to Score – Yes

Both teams have scored in three of the last five head-to-head duels between Liverpool and Leicester and we can see this match following the same path.

Furthermore, both teams have scored in a whopping 69% of all Leicester matches in Premier League this season, while the same is true for 44% of all Liverpool games in the league.

Liverpool vs Leicester preview: Can the Foxes put up a fight?


After nearly half of season gone in Premier League, it seems that we will have a very interesting title race between Man City, Liverpool, and Chelsea. At the moment, the Reds are second, three points behind Manchester City, and they have five wins and a draw in the last six games in the league. However, like their upcoming rival, they also have a lot of injuries. Adrian, Elliot, Fabinho, Jones, Origi, Phillips, Robertson, Thiago, van Dijk, and Henderson are all on Liverpool’s injury list at the moment.


After narrowly missing on Champions League two seasons in a row, the Foxes hoped to make that step forward this season. However, Leicester has struggled a bit and they are currently in the 9th spot in the Premier League. The team also failed to reach the next stage in Europa League, but they will play in Europa Conference League in the spring since they finished third in the group. The biggest problem for the team are injuries, along with some COVID cases. All in all, eleven players are either out or questionable for the upcoming duel with Liverpool.
