The Game-week 24 of the Premier League will feature Liverpool taking on Leicester City on Friday, 11th February at 01:15 AM IST. The fixture will take place at Anfield and hence, will be an away game for the Foxes.

Liverpool are currently sitting 2nd in the PL with 48 points, nine points behind table-toppers Manchester City. The Reds are coming off of a 3-1 victory against Cardiff City in their FA Cup clash. While his absence did not cause any trouble, the return of Mohamed Salah will surely give Jurgen Klopp a huge boost.

On the other hand, Leicester are sitting 10th in the league and are coming from a heavy 1-4 defeat against Nottingham Forest in their FA Cup tie. The Foxes have struggled throughout this season and a poor current form can prove to be horrendous.

Our score predictions: Liverpool 3-1 Leicester

With one of the greatest attacking arsenals in the league, the Reds will have no trouble in putting up a big score against a disappointing Leicester defence. However, the Foxes’ attack will also keep the hosts’ backline on their toes as they might just steal a goal.
