Michael Owen states his prediction for Leicester v Liverpool
Michael Owen looks ahead to Liverpool's trip to Leicester City in the Premier League on Monday night
Michael Owen is expecting there to be plenty of goals when Liverpool travel to Leicester City in the Premier League on Monday night.
The Reds head into the game bidding to continue their push for a top-four finish, having enjoyed a long break since their 2-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur at Anfield.
Liverpool are currently in fifth place in the Premier League table as Jurgen Klopp attempts to steer the Reds into next season’s Champions League.
Leicester, meanwhile, are aiming to take the three points and take a step closer towards securing Premier League safety.
Former Liverpool striker Owen is tipping there to be more than 2.5 goals when the Reds take on Leicester at the King Power Stadium on Monday night.
Writing in his column for BetVictor, Owen said: “Great to see Jamie Vardy break his Champions League duck in Sevilla midweek but there is every chance that by the time the champions take the field on Monday evening the Foxes will be in the Premier League relegation zone.
“The Reds were magnificent in the reverse fixture at Anfield back in September and I think they will pose plenty of problems for Claudio Ranieri’s men who have yet to find the back of the opposition net in the Premier League in 2017.”
A footnote added: “Michael’s recommendation; Over 2.5 goals.”
Klopp has been tasked with steering Liverpool back into the top four in the Premier League after the Reds ended up eighth last season.
