PREVIEW Leicester v Liverpool

first_img[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he two L’s do battle in the Premier League live game tonight but whether it will be one ‘L’ of a battle is debatable. It was 0-0 when these two sides last met in March.Leicester are now propping up the table and Liverpool in the bottom half of the table, only just admittedly but who on earth could have predicted that after the season they had last year?The Suarez and Sturridge factor has been done to death but it really does appear to have turned them into a different side, and for all their own weaknesses (one win from their last seven home games), Leicester may well be up for getting at least a point out of this one.Leicester do seem to turn it on against the bigger teams. They held Arsenal 1-1 in August before sensationally beating Man U 5-3 in what might yet turn out to be one of the games of the season.Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has been in the news this week on whether or not he will continue for Liverpool having only been offered a one year contract. Manager Brendan Rodgers was quick to scotch rumours of a rift between himself and Gerrard but spent quite a bit of the interview talking about Gerrard in the past tense, so make of that what you will !!!Gerrard is however expected to start in the 7.45pm kick off.Leicester v LiverpoolPremier League7.45pm LIVE ON BT SPORTHEAD TO HEAD RECORD(Maximum 10 matches)Mar 2004 Premiership Leicester 0-0 LiverpoolSep 2003 Premiership Liverpool 2-1 LeicesterJan 2002 Premiership Liverpool 1-0 LeicesterOct 2001 Premiership Leicester 1-4 LiverpoolMar 2001 Premiership Leicester 2-0 LiverpoolOct 2000 Premiership Liverpool 1-0 LeicesterMay 2000 Premiership Liverpool 0-2 LeicesterSep 1999 Premiership Leicester 2-2 LiverpoolApr 1999 Premiership Liverpool 0-1 LeicesterOct 1998 Premiership Leicester 1-0 LiverpoolTEAMSLeicester (from): Schmeichel, Hamer, Morgan, Moore, De Laet, Konchesky, Wasilewski, Drinkwater, James, King, Cambiasso, Albrighton, Mahrez, Knockaert, Vardy, Ulloa, Nugent, Schlupp, Wood, Powell.Liverpool (from): Mignolet, Johnson, Skrtel, Sakho, Enrique, Lucas, Henderson, Allen, Gerrard, Sterling, Lambert, Jones, Manquillo, Lovren, Moreno, Can, Coutinho, Lallana, Markovic, Borini.Liverpool only scraped a win against Stoke on Saturday and they are again without Balotelli because of a hamstring strain.Leicester have been steady at 11/4 all day with Star Sports but that probably looks the bet given it’s impossible to back Liverpool at short odds in their current predicament.RECOMMENDED BETS (scale of 1-50 points)BACK LEICESTER at around 11/4 for 6 points with Star SportsRETURN SINCE START OF WORLD CUP: PROFIT 27.63 POINTSWhat’s your view?
