If in previous seasons Leicester fought for the Champions League until the last round, then in the 2021/22 season the team is marking time in the middle of the table. There are still chances to compete for the Europa League or the Conference League, but for this you need to stop losing points. The Foxes are still capable of outplaying any team in the Premier League, but stability has disappeared, and it is no longer possible to beat the middle peasants and outsiders of the championship in the class.
It’s hard to blame head coach Rogers for the recession. This season there have been only a few matches where Leicester played with the optimal lineup. Almost in every round there are serious problems with the line-up. At the same time, the “foxes” do not have a wide store of substitutes and any rotation negatively affects the team’s level of play.
This season, Liverpool have managed to improve the game. Van Dijk returned, who, although to this day is not in optimal shape, has put things in order in defense. Salah and Mane shine again on the field. There are interruptions in the game of the Merseysides. But so far, Liverpool are the only team in the Premier League that can cause problems for Manchester City in the fight for the championship.
Liverpool players try to grab the ball from the very first minutes of the match and create chances over and over again near the opponents’ goal. The Merseysides don’t change anything in their game, even when they win crushingly. There are many attacking players in the team who are able to make a difference on the field.
Analysis of the fight
Leicester are drained of injuries and Rogers will have to resort to serious rotation again. It is worth noting that Liverpool players will enter the field 100% ready for the match. What not to say about Leicester, because the team played against Man City only two days ago.
Therefore, I propose to take advantage of the situation and make a number of attractive bets: victory of Liverpool with a handicap (-1.5), riding single combats, victory of Leicester, more selections in the match will be made by Leicester, Total substitutions in the match are greater (5.5), victory of Leicester on fouls with a handicap (+4), more outs in the match (37.5), individual total of shots on goal of Liverpool more (20.5).
