Leicester – Liverpool betting tips for today, September 1, 2018.
Football: England – Premier League
Tip: Away Win
Match Result: 1:2 WON!!!
|Premier League (PL) leaders Liverpool travel to the King Power Stadium looking to maintain their winning start to the season. In their way is a home side in good form, having responded well to an opening weekend defeat with two straight wins.|
|With a home record of: W7, D6, L6, last season, Leicester were an indifferent home side in the previous campaign, but exceeded expectations in home matches against the eventual top six (W2, D1, L3). Across all competitions, the champions of 2015/16 have won at least one home game against Liverpool in each of the last three seasons.|
|Though Liverpool have a mixed record at Leicester, three straight wins is the Reds’ joint-best start to a PL campaign (along with 93/94, 94/95 and 13/14). Liverpool can now defend as well as attack, but their away record last season (W9, D5, L5) keeps them as mere second-favourites to lift the title.|
|The last time Liverpool won their three first matches, they went on to become runners up (2013/14). They have never won their opening four matches in the PL era – is this finally their year? Either way, there should be goals, as 74% of Liverpool’s away matches in the 2017/18 PL produced over 2.5 goals – a league high!|
|Players to watch: Young Leicester winger Demarai Gray has looked sharp in the opening month of the season, finding the net in the last round.|
|For Liverpool, Mohamed Salah continues to look invincible, with two goals in three so far.|
|Stat attack: 60% of Leicester’s defeats in 2017/18 came with them trailing at half-time.|
|Liverpool, meanwhile, have been ahead at half time in 13 of their last 15 victories.|
|Five out of the last six H2H encounters have seen over 2.5 goals scored and/or both teams score.|
