This will be one of the biggest games in the English Premier League this week. Leicester is set to host Liverpool barely a week after the pair played to a 3-3 draw in the EFL Carabao Cup. The Reds are in need of a win here to keep pace with Manchester City who leads the EPL table right now.

However, the Sky Blues have played an additional game thus far and had an extra game to gain a lead. Under Jurgen Klopp, Liverpool has played very consistent ball all season and are has a legit shot to win it all. They have six points to make up and today would be a great start for the Reds. 

On the flipside, Leicester City is in 11th place in the EPL table and has yet to really find a groove this season. The Foes have neither been impressive nor disappointing and are still looking to hit their stride after 27 matches.

Leicester vs. Liverpool Prediction and Pick

Klopp is one of the best managers in the EPL and has led his team to a great season so far. They will take a hit to their roster with the AFCON starting next month and will be hell-bent on making the most of their full team while they have it. 

One player they were without last week is Andy Robertson and the Scottish captain will be out again this week after getting red-carded against Tottenham. While this is a big loss, the Reds were able to play to a draw with their second-stringers against Leicester last week without Robertson. 

Leicester has struggled to defend against high-caliber offenses lately and I think this trend continues today. They surrendered six goals to Manchester City on Sunday and three goals to a neutered version of this very same Liverpool team.

With no value on the moneyline, I like this game to go OVER 3.5 goals with some plus money odds attached. 

Pick: Leicester &  Liverpool OVER 3.5 Goals (+105)
