Virgil van Dijk will be at Anfield for Liverpool vs Leicester

Virgil van Dijk will be at Anfield for Liverpool vs Leicester

I'm expecting goals in this one. With title hopes looking dashed, Jurgen Klopp's men occupy fourth spot which is the more realistic target.

Liverpool have lost their last three competitive games against Leicester City under Klopp but judging by their current 11-game unbeaten league run, they are tipped to avoid losing at odds of (1.062).

Leicester's mini-revival under Claude Puel has stalled in recent weeks with the Foxes now without a win in four games in all competitions as they lost at Watford last time out.

Mohamed Salah is the favourite to score in the game at 5/6 odds at Skybet, but we are backing Philippe Coutinho, who is available at better odds of 13/10 at Coral. However, the Merseysiders would have to do without the Dutchman when Leicester City visit Anfield on Saturday.

The Foxes will be without Danny Simpson and Robert Huth.

Liverpool suffered an EFL Cup defeat to Leicester City earlier this season (0-2 in September), before beating them in the Premier League four days later.

I imagine Jurgen Klopp will make a few changes for the game with only having a two day gap between this fixture and the trip to Burnley on New Year's Day, so I think maybe Loris Karius might get the nod in goal and we might also see the return of Dejan Lovren in defence.

I'm unsure of Leicester again. They are offered at (1.66) to score in both halves.

There's nearly certainly going to be changes further up the field as well, but the news that Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson could be out until February with a hamstring injury and Daniel Sturridge's ongoing health problems puts a damper on Klopp's options.

Meanwhile, the club will be handed a boost by the arrival of defender Virgil van Dijk from Southampton. I had him for six months and then for the last six months he was injured. As Jose Mourinho said, full-backs are mega-expensive now too.
