Leicester City vs Liverpool Preview
All eyes will be on King Power Stadium when Leicester City and Liverpool face each other on Saturday morning. The Foxes aim to build on back-to-back wins over the likes of Wolverhampton and Southampton, but they will have a big fish to fry in the football match against Jurgen Klopp’s troops. Demarai Gray, who found the net in the 2-1 win over the Saints at the weekend, is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. Liverpool, on the other hand, aim to keep their 100% record intact and there is every chance the visitors will stick to their attacking style of play against Leicester City. Mohamed Salah continues where he left last season and the Egypt international, who scored the winner against Brighton, is likely to make life difficult for the opposition defenders. A lively contest is on the cards and we predict that one goal will separate the two teams in the King Power Stadium clash.
