One Monday night Premier League game to end this latest set of fixtures as in-form Liverpool travel to struggling Leicester City.

After picking up their form, Liverpool have surged back into the running for a top 4 place and start this weekend with 62 points – just one back from Man Utd, who have a game in-hand.

Leicester, on the other hand are in dire straits third from bottom with just 30 and look one of five sides now fighting relegation.

The match betting sees Liverpool as the hot favourites at 11/20 to go all the way in this game, with the draw 16/5 and Leicester at 4/1.

The sides played over Xmas and that ended in a 2-1 win for Liverpool at home, but the Foxes till know this fixture ended 1-0 to them last season.

In fact, Leicester have also won the last two repeat fixtures, so this hasn’t been a happy hunting ground for the Reds in recent years.

That said, if we go back a bit further, Liverpool have still only lost 2 of their last 12 games to Leicester in all competitions.

With just the one league draw in the last 15 we tend to get a result one way, or another here.

Recent clashes have also sees a fair few goals, with 6 of the last 8 going OVER 2.5 GOAL – this can be backed at ½, with both teams to score on offer at a slightly better 4/7.

Looking at the scoring markets, Liverpool’s Diogo Jota as netted in 2 of the last 4 vs Leicester, so might appeal at 9/2 (1st) or 13/10 (anytime), while the Reds’ main man Mo Salah is their shortest-priced man in this market at 4/1 (1st) or 6/5 (anytime).
