The Premier League has returned and is already as exciting as ever. One of the biggest games of matchweek four sees Liverpool travel to King Power Stadium to face Leicester City in Saturday's early kick-off.
Since coming up the top-flight in 2014, Leicester’s home record against Liverpool is actually really impressive. They have beaten the English giants in three of the last four home fixtures in all competitions. It’s a game that tends to produce goals with six of the eight since 2014 seeing both teams score and over 2.5 goals. The last match between the two sides was at Anfield in late December last year and a Salah brace inspired Liverpool to a 2-1 win after Vardy’s opener.
Three points for the hosts would be a huge result and would provide a solid base for a strong season. However, they are without their star striker, Jamie Vardy who is serving the final game of a suspension. Other than that, Claude Puel has a fully available squad.

A win would maintain Jurgen Klopp’s 100% record and their injury situation is similar to their opponents. Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is still out while Dejan Lovren also misses out. Latest matches: Liverpool FC

Most football fans will expect a strong Liverpool win here and they are the favourites for the points but Leicester shouldn’t be written off. The Foxes have shown that they know how to beat them and even without Vardy, they are a strong side. As always in the fixture, there should be goals and I expect both teams to get on the scoresheet.
