Leicester vs Liverpool preview and predictions

Club World Cup champions Liverpool and current leaders at the top of the Premier League to 13 points when they face second-placed Leicester City at the King Power on Boxing Day.

Competition: Premier League

Venue: King Power Stadium

Date: Thursday, 26 December 2019

Kick-off: 11:00 PM

Roberto Firmino’s extra-time strike handed Liverpool a narrow 1-0 victory over Flamengo on Saturday night and Leicester were beaten 3-1 by Manchester City at the Etihad. That meant Liverpool currently enjoy a 10-point adrift at the top of the Premier League table. Only once in the competition’s 27-year history has a team failed to win the title while in such a commanding position at Christmas when Newcastle United missed out to Manchester United in 1995/96.
