The final game in this round of Premier League fixtures takes place on Monday, as relegation-threatened Leicester City has home advantage for the visit of Liverpool. There will be pressure on both sides this weekend, with Leicester desperately needed a victory to keep their survival hopes alive.
Before Betting On Leicester vs Liverpool
Leicester City’s long stay in the Premier League could come to an end this season, as they are struggling for the victories that will lift them out of the bottom three. The Foxes currently sit 18th in the standings, and they have won just once over their previous five. Meanwhile, they come into this fixture without a win in their last three, and they were easily beaten by Fulham in their previous outing.
However, Leicester does have a strong recent record against the Reds, as they have landed victories in each of the previous two clashes between the sides at the King Power. But, they haven’t won three home matches on the bounce against Liverpool since 1931. Leicester’s defense will need to remain solid this weekend, as they have managed just one clean sheet in their last 13 league clashes with the Reds.
Liverpool could yet end the season in the Champions League spots. The Reds come into this round sitting a point behind Man United, and depending on other results this weekend, they could move into the top four with a victory on Monday. The Reds boast excellent recent form coming into this fixture as they have won their previous six.
Meanwhile, each of their last five victories have been recorded by a one-goal margin. The Reds will be looking to achieve a league double over the Foxes for the first time since the 2019-20 campaign this week. However, Liverpool have only completed the league double over Leicester on two previous occasions under Jurgen Klopp.

Leicester’s defensive record would be a major concern coming into this showdown on Monday. We struggle to see them keeping a clean sheet, which means that the preference would be for the Reds to land a straightforward success at the King Power.
