Jurgen Klopp's men were the victors of a high-scoring clash in midweek and our tipster is backing yet more goals in a home win on Saturday afternoon

Liverpool are aiming to maintain their perfect start to the Premier League season when they welcome Leicester City to Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

It took a goalkeeping error for Jurgen Klopp’s side to make it seven wins from seven games last weekend as the Reds escaped Bramall Lane with a 1-0 win, and the German manager will be hoping for a more straightforward result against the Foxes.

Leicester are certain to put up a fight, though, with Brendan Rodgers’ side sitting third in the Premier League and were one of just two sides to claim a point at Anfield last season.

Liverpool vs Leicester City Latest Odds

The Reds have won their last 16 Premier League matches and are just 4/9 (1.44) to extend that run with bet365, which would leave them just one victory short of Manchester City’s record.

It is 6/1 (7.0) that Rodgers wins on his return to Anfield and guides Leicester to their first victory at the ground since 2000. The draw can be backed at 15/4 (4.75).

Liverpool vs Leicester City Team News

Joel Matip was injured for Liverpool’s 4-3 Champions League win over Red Bull Salzburg on Wednesday night but could return for this one. Naby Keita came off the bench in that match and will be pushing to start on Saturday.

James Maddison was absent for Leicester’s 5-0 win against Newcastle last Sunday and faces a race to be fit.

Liverpool vs Leicester City Preview

Although Liverpool’s attack were, once again, in red-hot form on Wednesday night, their defence continued to struggle as the Reds surrendered a 3-0 lead before Mohamed Salah’s goal gave his side the points.

That game was the fourth match in a row at Anfield where the Reds have won but conceded and it could be a similar story on Saturday afternoon.

Leicester have scored in 11 of their last 13 Premier League away matches but they have not kept a clean sheet away from the King Power Stadium since a 1-0 at Goodison Park on New Year’s Day, conceding 18 times in the following 11 away fixtures.

Liverpool vs Leicester City Tips and Predictions

Liverpool’s devastating attack has scored 14 times at Anfield this season in all competitions but, with their defence still exploitable, the 15/8 (2.87) quote on a home win in which both teams score looks the way to go on Saturday afternoon.

Odds correct at the time of writing. Please gamble responsibly.
