Liverpool hosts Leicester City in round 24 of the English Premier League. The match will be played on Thursday, February 10th at Anfield (Liverpool)
Jurgen Klopp’s team is ranked second in the Premier League standings with 48 points after 22 matches. Liverpool gained 14 victories and six draws and suffered two losses. The Reds have gained good momentum in recent weeks. Their unbeaten run lasts seven matches, and the last four of them ended with victories. This pace leaves the Reds a chance to catch up with Manchester City players, who are six points ahead in terms of points lost. On February 6, Liverpool defeated the players of Cardiff City in the home match of the 4th round of the FA Cup (3-1). The outcome of the confrontation was determined after the break when Diogo Jota, Takumi Minamino, and Harvey Elliott upset their opponents.

Brendan Rodgers’s team is in 10th place in the standings with 26 points. Leicester City has seven victories, five draws, and eight defeats after 20 games. The Foxes have not been as confident in recent matches as their future opponents. Leicester City didn’t gain a single victory in three matches in a row. In the Premier League, the Blues lost to Tottenham (2-3) and shared points with Brighton (1-1), and on February 6 they suffered a big away defeat from Nottingham Forest in the 4th round of the FA Cup (4-1).
The opponents played twice at the end of last year. On December 22, Liverpool hosted the Foxes in the quarterfinals of the League Cup. The regulation time of the match ended with a score of 3-3, and the Reds were more successful in the penalty shootout (5-4). After six days, the teams met in Leicester in the 20th round of the English Premier League. And the Blues sensationally defeated Liverpool thanks to a goal from Ademola Lukman, although the visitors had a huge playing advantage (1-0). Now the Reds should not lose points if they still hope to catch up with Manchester City. In the upcoming match at Anfield, the hosts will do everything to score three points and take revenge on the Foxes for the away defeat. The chances of such an outcome are high. The Reds have celebrated victory in their last five home games in the Premier League, while the Blues have earned only two points in four away rounds. Beyond that, Leicester has personnel problems in the defense, which negatively affect the results of the team. The Foxes did not keep a clean sheet and conceded a total of nine goals in the last four games.
