Liverpool vs Leicester City preview.
It was 2016 when Leicester won the premier league trophy and stunned the football world. Now Brendon Rogers will face his former side looking to repeat the feat they achieved 3 years ago. This is Liverpool vs Leicester City preview.
Rodgers since taking over at Leicester has done a great job. They can bring down any opposition while playing an attractive brand of football. The recipe that Brendan Rodgers was keen to successfully implement on his former side Liverpool. But things did not work out as Brendan Rodgers had hoped for at Anfield.
Even at Celtic, where he spent few seasons after leaving Liverpool, he enjoyed success and even won the league without a single defeat. That’s why the ambitious and successful owners of Leicester signed Brendan.
He took over Leicester at the start of the season, and currently, his team sits the third just below Liverpool and Manchester City.
Kloop at Liverpool
Liverpool signed a charismatic German to get back to winning ways. Under the chorus of “You never walk alone,” Klopp made the Kop his own.
And very soon a trivet of Mane, Salah and Firmino were destroying defense after defense. While Van Dijk and Allison making sure they guard their own. This led to Liverpool conquering Europe. No small feat, yet what they really want is a premier league title.
It had been ages since Liverpool last won the title. A swashbuckling attacking football has always been in Liverpool DNA yet translating it into domestic glory has so far eluded them.Quite a reunion. Yet Brendan Rodgers and Leicester City are not a pushover.
Liverpool vs Leicester City
Currently Leicester City has a core of young British talent marauding the pitch. At the back they are secured by Kasper Schmeichel, with talents like Morgan, Chilwell and Fuchs adding youth alongside the experienced Johnny Evans.
In the middle they have Albrighton, Ndidi, Maddison, Gray, Tielemans and Praet, ready to give any opposition a run for their money. In attack the electric Jamie Vardy is joined by Iheanacho and Perez.
Altogether Leicester City is not only hard to beat but also hard to contain, only losing a single game this season.
From the red corner, Klopp will be unleashing the front three of Mane, Firmino, and Salah in the attack. In the middle Fabinho, Henderson, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Keita, Wijnaldum, and Milner are available.
While their back is secured by excellent Van Dijk, Alexander-Arnold, Robertson and the resurgent Matip, with Allison manning the posts. There is a reason why they are leading the table, they have yet to lose a single point this season.
A very enticing battle, yet it is safe to say there will be no shortage of temper or goals. Both teams play high tempo football with emphasis on direct passing and speedy counter attacks.
Tactically Klopp and Rodgers are both well aware of Liverpool, which may provide a slight advantage to Rodgers. Form wise, Liverpool’s attack is currently struggling to replicate last season’s form, but their midfield and defense are solid.
For Leicester, Maddison and Tielemans are both on form and do have the tendency to shoot from outside the area with Jamie Vardy scoring goals for fun. Punters are even putting their money on few yellow cards to keep everything interesting. A treat for all.
