The final match on Sunday is Liverpool V Leicester from Anfield (22/11/20), and in my betting prediction, I’m expecting a close match.
Liverpool V Leicester Preview
The Reds are in the midst of an injury crisis. Particularly in defence, where they are missing the likes of Alexander-Arnold, Gomez and van Dijk.
But when champions have their backs to the wall, they always find a way to come through.
So this match should be a great insight into how Liverpool will cope with the obstacles that will occur throughout the defence of their title.

Can Leicester exploit Liverpool’s injury crisis?
For Leicester, this match represents a great chance to take points off the champions.
Brendan Rodgers’ team are made for counter attacking football, and given the likely make shift defence Liverpool will have to put out, the Foxes will have a great chance to upset the odds.
Liverpool V Leicester Odds
- Liverpool 9/10 – The Draw 29/10 – Leicester 29/10
- Over 2.5 Goals 8/13 – Under 2.5 Goals 29/20
- Both Teams To Score – Yes 1/2 – No 31/20
It’s not very often that Liverpool are nearly even money at home. This goes some way to highlighting just how deep this current injury crisis is.
Goals are expected, as shown in both the over/under 2.5 goals and both teams to score markets.
And given the likelihood of goals, that’s where my prediction is coming from.
Liverpool V Leicester Prediction 22/11/20
This match has a feel of a 1-1 draw at best for Leicester, or a 2-0 or 2-1 win for Liverpool, about it.
This puts it on the border line for over 2.5 goals, and at 8/13, that’s too short.
Weighing all that up, and it’s hard to ignore just under even money on a home win. Along with under 4.5 goals, in a same game multi bet, that takes it way over Evens.
