Leicester City: Ward; Castagne; Amartey; Faes; Thomas; Ndidi; Tielemans; Perez; Dewsbury-Hall; Barnes; Vardy

Prediction Analysis

The stalwart rearguard action that Leicester put up right before the World Cup didn’t matter when they faced a Newcastle team that had a penchant for goals, and Rodgers should experience a similar fate when he returns to the stadium where he played previously.

Because recent happenings both on and off the field have likely left the Anfield crowd in a buoyant mood, Klopp’s in-form side should make full use of the advantages of playing at home and finish the year 2022 with another three points to add to their tally.

Our predictions is Liverpool 2-0 Leicester City.
