Betting tips for Leicester vs Liverpool 01.09.2018
The Foxes receive one of the co-leaders of the English championship at King Power Stadium, Jürgen Klopp's Liverpool, in the match of the 4th round of the Premier League 18-19.
Leicester City has opted for the continuity of Frenchman Claude Puel on the bench despite his disastrous performance last year. The former Premier League champion in 2016 finished in the top 10 last season after being let go in the last third. Despite everything, the owner has decided to keep the former Southampton coach in the absence of a better option and against the opinion of a significant part of the staff.
Two of the pillars of the winning team of the title, the German central Robert Huth (has gone free) and Algerian playmaker Riyad Mahrez (transferred to Manchester City in exchange for 68 million euros) are the main casualties of the team, although they may not be the last since both goalkeeper Kaspers Schmeichel and central England Harry Maguire have many offers after shining in the World Cup in Russia.
In the chapter of signings, the team has invested the proceeds from the sale of Mahrez in four players: the English midfielder James Maddison, from Norwich; the Portuguese right-back of FC Porto Ricardo Pereira; Liverpool Welsh goalkeeper Danny Ward; and former Manchester United central Jonny Evans.
After debuting with a 2-1 loss at Old Trafford, Puel's side beat Wolverhampton (2-0) and Southampton last weekend (1-2). During the week, he eliminated Fleetwood Town in the second round of the Carabao Cup.
They lose the game Matty James, injured, and the suspended Jamie Vardy.
Liverpool comes from a great season 17-18. Only Karius' mistakes and Mohamed Salah's untimely injury left them without a chance to fight Real Madrid in the Champions League. The German Jürgen Klopp starts his third full season on the bench of Anfield, and does so with the total confidence of both owners and fans.
The net team has been strengthened conscientiously with the signings of Naby Keita (RB Leipzig), Fabinho (AS Monaco), Xherdan Shaqiri (Stoke City), and the Brazilian international goal Alisson (AS Roma), which makes those of Klopp start as one of the favorites to dispute the league title to Manchester City, keeping the trident formed by Salah, Firmino and Mané, and incorporating players who fit in the way of seeing Klopp football as Keita and Fabinho.
In the preseason, the Merseyside team won their first two friendlies in England, before losing to Borussia Dortmund (1-3), defeating City of Guardiola (1-2) and beating Manchester United (1-4). the ICC. Then, he thrashed Ancelotti's Napoli (5-0) and defeated Torino 3-1. In the Premier League debut, they thrashed West Ham 4-0, defeated Crystal Palace (0-2) at home and beat Brighton & Hove Albion last week (1-0).
Dejan Lovren and Oxlade-Chamberlain are injured for this game.
The absence of Vardy is decisive for my Foxes, who will not have too many weapons against the potential of the Reds. Still, I expect a vibrant game at Walkers, with both teams scoring, as has happened in five of the last six games between them.
