Liverpool Set to Face Struggling Leicester City in Bid to Secure European Spot. Liverpool is preparing for a crucial match against relegation-threatened Leicester City as they strive to maintain their pursuit of securing a European position.
Leicester City enters this game following a disappointing 5-3 loss to Fulham in the Premier League. Brendan Rodgers’ side has encountered difficulties in accumulating points this season, finding themselves in 19th place with only 30 points from 35 games. Despite their struggles, the Foxes have managed to score an impressive 49 goals this season, just two fewer than fourth-placed Manchester United. Notably, Leicester has emerged victorious in both of their previous home encounters against Liverpool under Jurgen Klopp’s management.
Liverpool, on the other hand, enters this game with consecutive 1-0 victories over Fulham and Brentford. The Merseyside Reds currently occupy the fifth position in the table, having amassed 62 points from 35 games. They have secured one-goal wins in their last five matches. Klopp’s side has enjoyed success against Leicester in recent encounters, winning eight of their last 11 meetings. Liverpool will be eager to extend their winning streak in the Premier League and aim to achieve a league double over Leicester, which they last accomplished in the 2019-20 season.
