Liverpool vs Leicester City

, KO: 20:00 Jan 30, 2019, Anfield
Leicester City

BOTH these sides were involved in 4-3 thrillers when they last played but left the pitch experiencing vastly different emotions.

Liverpool took the applause of a delirious Anfield after a thrilling victory over Crystal Palace took them a step closer to the club's first title since 1990.

And they inched closer to the Holy Grail without kicking a ball last night as Man City slumped to defeat at Newcastle – so the Reds can move seven clear at the top if they in here.

But Leicester trooped off at Molineux in the depths of despair after shipping a last-gasp winner to Wolves to push boss Claude Puel closer to the exit door.

With the Foxes not in action for another 10 days due to their shock FA Cup defeat by Newport County, it wouldn't have surprised me to see Puel binned before the trip to Anfield.

But he lives to fight another day, although taking on this heavyweight Liverpool side is probably the last scrap Puel would have wanted as he bids to bounce back off the ropes.

Taking those last two results in isolation, you might be tempted to back goals galore in this one. That Palace clash, though, was a blip on what has been an impeccable defensive record for Liverpool at Anfield.

Before shipping three goals to Roy Hodgson's side, the Reds had conceded just three goals all season in the league at their Merseyside fortress.

I'm expecting normal service to be resumed with a comfortable Liverpool victory, although Leicester's counter-attacking style could give them some joy against a team who push both full-backs so far forward. A home win with both teams to score might be a good shout and it's 19/10 with Ladbrokes especially if Virgil van Dijk joins Trent Alexander-Arnold on the sidelines.

Jurgen Klopp's side also had a free weekend due their Cup exit at Wolves and they would have enjoyed that breather after such a hectic run of games and injuries to key defenders. Van Dijk and Fabinho were both ill over the weekend  and are rated doubtful by Klopp while James Milner is suspended.

Leicester were sweating on key defender Harry Maguire but it looks like the England star will be fit to play and that's a boost for Puel.

Expect the Anfield side to fly out of the traps for this one and I like the look of an early goal. Bet 365 are offering odds of 10/3 on the first goal being scored between 10 and 20 minutes and that could be worth a few quid.

In the scorer markets, I like the look of Liverpool's Sadio Mane for anytime scorer at 13/10 with Ladbrokes. Jamie Vardy's pace on the counter also makes him a good option in the same market at 7/2 with Bet365.
