Liverpool is favourites to bag three points while the hosts will be happy with a single point against the visitors. With Jaime Vardy suspended and Liverpool yet to concede a goal this season, Leicester City are very unlikely to score one in this fixture while the attacking trio of Liverpool are expected to pill in at least a couple of goals against the leaky defence of Leicester City

Predicted Score: 3-0
