Liverpool did a solid job in the Champions League mid-week and have now built a strong winning streak. They will now return to domestic duties when they will host Leicester on Saturday. Leicester are coming off a couple of massive wins in their last two. They will come here looking to score goals and challenge Liverpool for at least a point.

Spread: Leicester +1.25
Total: 3 Goals
Liverpool (7-0-0) took a three-goal lead against Salzburg in the Champions League but had to score a late goal in order to secure the win (3-4 at home). Last week they won a hard match by 1-0, on the road against Sheffield United. They have now won four in a row in all competitions, keeping two clean sheets in the process. Liverpool are still leading the Premier League with 21 points, being the only team to have won all seven matches so far. They have scored 18 goals and have conceded just five in the process. Liverpool have won all four home matches this season but didn’t keep a single clean sheet.
On the other hand, Leicester (4-1-2) were sensational last week in the Premier League. They destroyed Newcastle by a massive 0-5 at home, but were lucky. A red card and an opponent own-goal paved the way for Leicester to record a massive win. They have now won three in a row in all competitions, scoring 11 goals and conceding just once. Leicester are actually sitting at the 3rd spot of the Premier League with 14 points. They are two points behind Manchester City and seven points behind Liverpool. Moreover, they have lost just once in their five away matches in all competitions (2-1-2). Three of those matches featured goals from both sides.
Liverpool struggled against Leicester last season, winning by 2-1 on the road before a 1-1 draw in this venue. They have been solid in the last five matches against Leicester (3-1-1). And they have been great as hosts against Leicester (6-2-2), remaining undefeated since 2000. If Liverpool are missing goalkeeper Alisson once again, I will gladly take the Over 3 Goals here.
