Leicester are in deep relegation trouble after their loss on Monday to Fulham. With not alot to play for, Fulham dominated, and were superb in their victory over Leicester, who didn’t want it enough. Leicester could and should have done a lot better defensively in the game, but were undone by Fulham’s energy and some excellent finishing.
Prior to that, Leicester had a decent 2-1 win over Wolves, then two draws against relegation rivals Leeds away and Everton at home. The later is a game Leicester should have won, but failed to take their chances.
Barring Arsenal and Manchester City, the worst team Leicester want to face is an inform Liverpool side who have won their last 6 Premier League games in a row. The past couple of games have seen two 1-0 home wins over Brentford and Fulham respectively.
One player in fine form is Mo Salah, who has scored 6 in his last 6 games and will fancy his chances of adding to his tally against a leaky Leicester side. After Newcastle’s draw away at Leeds, Liverpool know it’s win or bust in their hope for Champions League football so they will be aggressive and on the front foot, to secure all 3 points, to put the pressure on Newcastle and Manchester United, who sit above them in the Premier League.
Leicester really need all their top players to be on their ‘A’ game so Vardy, Maddison and Tielemans are key to Leicester getting a positive result in this game. Defeat to Liverpool will put Leicester deeper in the relegation zone and in massive trouble.
Sitting on 30 points, Leicester know time is running out and with an away game at Newcastle next up, it’s vital they get at least a point at home, to give them any chance.
