Leicester City vs Liverpool: The EPL Match between Leicester City and Liverpool on May 16 at 12:45 am Nepal time, 19:00 UTC Global time.
Leicester City’s quest to avoid relegation from the Premier League faces a critical test as they prepare to host Liverpool at the King Power Stadium in their penultimate home game of the season.
In their previous match, Leicester City suffered a disappointing 5-3 defeat against Fulham in a thrilling Bank Holiday clash. The game showcased a goal-scoring spectacle, with a total of 21 goals scored across three fixtures. Leicester City bore the brunt of Fulham’s attacking prowess as they fell victim to a well-deserved 3-0 halftime deficit, courtesy of goals from Willian, Carlos Vinicius, and Tom Cairney. Despite mounting a comeback in the second half and scoring three goals of their own, the damage had already been done in the ghastly first 45 minutes.
Following their dismal performance, Leicester City manager Dean Smith did not grant his players a customary day off. Currently, Leicester City sits just two points above the relegation zone, with Everton’s upcoming match against Manchester City poised to have a significant impact on their position. Leeds United’s draw against Newcastle United dropped Leicester City to 19th place in the standings.
While Leicester City has shown promise in the attacking third, scoring in nine of their last ten top-flight fixtures and finding the net eight times in their previous four games, their defensive struggles persist. The team has failed to keep a clean sheet in the Premier League since the World Cup break, conceding at least one goal in their last 20 matches.
Prediction: Leicester City 1-3 Liverpool
Leicester City possesses formidable attacking prowess, and scoring goals is seldom an issue for them. However, their persistent defensive shortcomings are likely to be exposed by a goal-hungry Liverpool.
Historically, the King Power Stadium has not been a favorable ground for Liverpool, but we anticipate that the Merseyside giants will secure another victory and deal a blow to Leicester City’s hopes of survival. The leaky defense of Leicester City will likely contribute to their downfall, allowing Liverpool to return home with maximum points.
