Liverpool chases top four

Liverpool chases top four

Liverpool is looking to try to regain their spot in the top four against a relegation-threatened Leicester City. Liverpool have been impressive this season, which is why they were able to reach the top four. However, since the teams below them picked up wins as well, they now dropped at the fifth. As for Leicester, their current results made them drop at the relegation zone. A win in this match is huge for them, as it will make them escape the drop zone. With that, they are very desperate for a win, so they can move to the safe zone. This meeting will be on May 16, 2023, at 3:00 AM (GMT+8), with Leicester playing as hosts.

These two teams already met for 120 matches prior to this match, and it was the visitors who hold a better record. From those 120 matches, they visitors were able to win 54 games, while the hosts has 41 wins. However, it seems like the hosts are doing well against the visitors at home, winning their last two home games. However, in their last 13 games against the visitors, they were only able to keep one clean sheet. They also conceded 27 goals in these matches, which is not a good sign for them. The visitors on the other hand won eight of their last 11 games against thee hosts. Additionally, they also won their reverse fixture against the hosts, and are looking to have the same result here.

Liverpool is currently at the fifth place in the league table with 62 points across their names. Just last week, Liverpool is actually sitting at the third of the league table, but due to their current results, they dropped from the top four. Liverpool is a team who started this season slowly. Fortunately, they were able to pick up themselves and improve to slowly climb up the league table. They need a win for this match, as they are four points behind from the team at the fourth. A win here is possible though as they have a good momentum coming into this match. They are from a 1-0 win against Brentford, which gives them the confidence that they can win here. Mohamed Salah, and Darwin Nunez are both lethal for Liverpool, so they need to step-up in this match.

It is just unfortunate that neither Roberto Firmino, nor Naby Keita is returning in this important match. Meanwhile, Stefan Bajcetic, Calvin Ramsay, and Thiago Alcantara are still recovering from their injuries.

Leicester on the other hand is currently at the 19th of the league table, belonging at the relegation zone of the contest. They are with 30 points, and a win in this match is huge for them. With an additional three points, Leicester could escape the relegation zone and go to the 17th with 33 points. It is just unfortunate that they do not have the confidence coming into this match. They suffered a 5-3 loss against Fulham on their last match, and are now aiming to bounce back form that defeat. Leicester are desperate to win in this game, considering that they are fighting for their lives in this game. They can no longer afford to face another loss in this match, or they will have to face another debacle.

There are no fresh injury concerns for Leicester, but Bertrand, Justin, and Vestergaard remains on the sideline. Kelechi Iheancho on the other hand is already nearing his return in his squad.

Prediction:

Liverpool (1.0)
