Liverpool vs. Leicester City: Preview, recent form, odds, upcoming fixtures

Liverpool (last 5 Premier League matches: WWWWW) started the season with eight straight wins, and after the lone draw to Manchester United in Matchday 9, the team has gone on another eight-match win streak to get to this point. This could prove a tricky match, though, as the team has just returned from a trip to Qatar and is on the road to face one of the best teams in the Prem this season. Both Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane are on nine goals for the season at the halfway point; look for one if not both of them to break into double digits in what should be a high-scoring affair. 

Leicester City (recent form: WWWDL) was bested by Manchester City but still got a goal from Jamie Vardy to bring his Golden Boot-leading total to 17. That’s a nearly-goal-a-game pace for the striker. Though the Foxes are trending in the wrong direction, with the loss to City preceded by a draw with Norwich, they still have one of the best chances the rest of the season to defeat Liverpool and set a legit Premier League title race in motion. 


The William Hill oddsmakers see the potential for an upset. Liverpool is a +108 favorite (wager $100 to win $108), while Leicester’s at +235 odds to win outright, with a draw at +265. 

Upcoming Fixtures

Liverpool, Tuesday, Oct. 29 vs. Southampton (League Cup); Saturday, Nov. 2 vs. Southampton (Premier League)

Leicester City, Wednesday, Oct. 30 vs. Wolves (League Cup); Saturday, Nov. 2 vs. Liverpool (Premier League)
