Liverpool vs Leicester prediction
Liverpool will begin their quest for a possible domestic cup triumph when they host Leicester in one of this week’s EFL Cup matches. Following the exit of Fabinho, Henderson and co, Liverpool are sort of in transition as they have gone on a buying spree, acquiring Endo, Gravenberch, MacAllister and Szoboszlai to beef up the middle of the pack. While they have struggled in some of their games, coming back from behind in the last 3, Klopp’s men have managed to remain unbeaten so far this term, indicating they are not push overs in the race for all the silverware on the table this season.
For Leicester, it is a new beginning in England’s second tier football following a failed EPL campaign last season which saw them relegated after picking just 34 points from 38 games. Now, the 2016 EPL winners are starting to rebuild by first getting out of the Championship hurdle and earning promotion back to the top flight. Here, they will be looking to get past Liverpool and stay on course for a possible cup triumph. So far, things have been going well with 7 wins in the last 8 games, pushing them to the summit with 21 points from a possible 24. Here, they will look to get a major upset in front of the noisy Anfield crowd.
Certainly, the Foxes will be buoyed by their current Championship form and the fact that the Reds have struggled to grind out result so far this season. However, Liverpool still have what it takes to end victorious here. To this end, for our Liverpool Vs Leicester prediction, we are backing the home side to edge this tie with a 2 goal margin.

Our Liverpool vs Leicester predictions
According to the statistics and the odds of the bookmakers, we suggest the following tips:
Prediction 1: HC -1 Liverpool Win
The Reds seem to have a formula that has been earning them results so far. They head into this tie on the back of a 3-1 win over West Ham, their 5th win in 6 league games, keeping them without defeat in this campaign. That win over West Ham was also the Reds’ 6th victory in all competitions, coming after a 3-1 away triumph at LASK in the Europa League. This means, no matter the hurdle in front of them, Klopp’s men can count on individual quality to deliver when it matters the most. Therefore, we are backing Liverpool to get all 3 points with at least a 2 goal margin.

Prediction 2: Most Goals 2nd Half
Liverpool have no doubt shown class in their last 7 games across all competitions. In those games, Klopp’s tactical skills had to come to the fore to quell any threats posed to them by opposing sides and remain indomitable so far. This has also been aided by the renewed vigor of Nunez, Salah’s undoubted ability up front and a developing midfield strength. Looking at these past games, 5 of them have shown how the Reds often have a slow start before waking up in the second half to nail their opponent. Based on this, for our second Liverpool Vs Leicester prediction, we expect the 2nd half to produce more goals than the first.
