Jurgen Klopp's side fired five past Swansea City on Boxing Day and our tipster thinks that the Reds could get amongst the goals again in this match

Liverpool can round off 2017 in style with victory against Leicester City at Anfield on Saturday afternoon.

The Reds routed Swansea City on Boxing Day, enjoying an emphatic 5-0 victory and, having gone 14 matches without defeat in all competitions, Jurgen Klopp will demand another big performance from his side here.

Match odds:

Liverpool, of course, are big favourites to maintain momentum on Merseyside with victory here and dabblebet offer just 3/10 (1.30) that the Reds justify that favouritism by taking all three points against the Foxes; half of Liverpool's last eight Premier League matches on their own patch has ended all square - an outcome that is chalked up as a 9/2 (5.50) chance on this occasion.

Leicester had been performing well under the stewardship of former Southampton boss Claude Puel, who took up the reins at King Power Stadium back in October.

The Foxes, though, have failed to win any of their last four fixtures in all competitions and they suffered a bitterly disappointing defeat at the hands of Watford at Vicarage Road on Boxing Day; Anfield is surely one of the toughest venues in the top tier to visit at the present time and, accordingly, the odds compilers offer a chunky 17/2 (9.50) that Leicester prevail on Merseyside.

Reds to get amongst the goals again:

Remarkably, Liverpool's fantastic 5-0 win against Swansea City on Tuesday evening saw the Reds score at least three times in a 13th consecutive fixture that they have won.

With Mohamed Salah, Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino all in outstanding form, the Reds are certainly tough to contain and the Foxes could face a long afternoon when they make the trip to meet Klopp's men.

As such, dabblebet's 10/11 (1.91) quote for the hosts to hit at least three goals in this game could well prove popular, while the same firm go 17/10 (2.70) that Liverpool win by at least three clear goals; that particular play would have landed in each of the last 10 games that the Reds have won in all competitions.

The case for overs:

Leicester certainly pack a punch themselves; Puel's men have notched eight goals in their last three Premier League matches away from home, while the Foxes have found the net in seven of their last eight games on the road in this competition.

Furthermore, Liverpool claimed a thrilling 3-2 victory when the teams met at King Power Stadium back in September and there is plenty to suggest that the goals will flow here. dabblebet offer 4/9 (1.44) that there are at least three goals in this game.

Tips and predictions:

Best value, however, could lie in backing the in-form Reds to score at least three goals against the Foxes; the 10/11 (1.91) selection from dabblebet would have landed in no fewer than 11 of Liverpool's last 14 matches in all competitions and, so, it could represent good value once again ahead of Saturday's showdown.
