Former Premier League midfielder Robbie Savage was on the field when Leicester last won at Anfield. The Foxes return to Merseyside for a big Carabao Cup tie this Wednesday night (1945).
Five of the last seven games in all competitions, Liverpool scored exactly three goals so it would not surprise me if a much-changed Liverpool side get three against Leicester.
I’m going with a 3-1 Liverpool win. What about you?
Robbie’s Pick: Liverpool 3-1 Leicester City
Trent Alexander-Arnold could also miss out due to a muscle injury.
The Foxes, on the other hand, will be without Thomas Cannon and Dennis Praet – both of whom are struggling with back injuries.
- Liverpool are unbeaten in 18 games across all competitions
- Leicester City have won nine of their 10 games this season
- Liverpool have scored three goals in five of their last seven matches
- Leicester City are winless in 13 visits to Anfield

Want to feel old? The last time Leicester won at Anfield was back in May 2000.
The Liverpool squad at the time included the likes of Jamie Carragher, Emile Heskey and Michael Owen. Leicester, on the other hand, boasted the likes of Neil Lennon, Tony Cottee and our very own Planet Sport Bet ambassador Robbie Savage.
Leicester won that match 2-0 though the Foxes haven’t tasted success at Anfield since. Question is, will that change on Wednesday night?
The answer is no. Liverpool are on a real high having gone 18 games unbeaten and even if Jurgen Klopp opts to field a weaker side, the Reds still have enough quality on the bench to get the job done.
That’s not to say that Leicester won’t give this a good go. The Championship league leaders have only lost one match this season and they possess a serious threat.
With that in mind, while we are backing Liverpool to win, Leicester will fancy their chances of getting on the scoresheet.
The hosts to win and both teams to score is the way to go in this one.
