Expectations are high after two great wins at home against Wolves and away against Southampton. Liverpool at home has earlier been a fixture we can look forward to with a number of great results and great goals, Jamie Vardy’s volley will always be in mind.
Claude Puel could see his 2nd strings out there against Fleetwood Town, doing a great game. A few first teamers got a taste as well, including Amartey and Morgan. There are no big injuriy worries, with only Matty James ruled out.
Jamie Vardy will of course not be including, serving a ban since his bad tackle in the Wolves games, but he will be available after this game.
Liverpool are looking like a very strong unit and Jurgen Klopp is slowly building a team to count, despite losing big star names during the build. Coutinho left in January, but no one could really see him missing. Mane, Firminho and Salah are a trio to look out for.
James Milner shows that you can be a good player, also after saying no to international football, with that in mind, Jamie Vardy should be ok without England involvement following Milner in his decission making.
The fact that Liverpool also now have Alisson, makes them even stronger and their defense looks stronger, with a Van Dijk now more settled. Leicester City signed third choice Danny Ward, who most certainly will be on the bench in this match.
The game is an early kick-off fixture, also being live on telly at 12.30, so hopefully every fox is awake and ready to go.
Paul Tierney, will be in charge at King Power
Our prediction is a 2-0 win, but not shure at all
Predicted Leicester City line-up,
System: 4-4-1-1, Schmeichel – Pereira, Maguire, Morgan, Chilwell – Ndidi, Mendy, Albrighton, Gray – Maddison – Iheanacho
Leicester struggled heavilly in the 1980-81 season, but they managed to win both home and away against Liverpool, who had a bad season ending 5th. Those who can remember the goal of Andy Peake will always have that in mind. A 2-0 win at home, really made Jock Wallace, the manager at the time, think that Leicester were among the better teams in the league, but despite a 2-1 shocking away win at Anfield, Leicester and Wallace had to see themselves relegated.
In Both Camps,
Paul Konchesky and this summer signing Danny Ward are two recent moves between the clubs. Emile Heskey was a massive transfer for Leicester City, when he left for £ 11 million to Liverpool in 2000. Other players who had a life in both camps are Tom Bromilow and Gordon Milne, who both played for Liverpool and had a manager period at Leicester City.
Other players to remember are Alan Waddle, Michael Hooper and Kevin MacDonald who all had careers in both camps.
The big duel,
Alisson and Schmeichel is an interesting one, we believe in Kasper winning this one and hopefully Alison will be under great pressure for the first time this season.
