Sky Sports pundit states his prediction for Liverpool FC v Leicester
Charlie Nicholas is tipping Liverpool FC to drop their first points of the season when they take on Leicester City at Anfield
Charlie Nicholas is tipping Liverpool FC to drop their first points of the season when they take on Leicester City at Anfield in the Premier League on Saturday.
The Reds head into the game looking to preserve their 100 per cent start to the new campaign, with Jurgen Klopp’s men currently five points clear at the top of the top flight table.
Liverpool FC have won all seven of their Premier League games so far this term and they certainly look like the team to beat in the division as things stand.
Leicester, meanwhile, have enjoyed a strong start to the new campaign under Brendan Rodgers and they currently find themselves in third place in the table and seven points behind leaders Liverpool FC.
Former Arsenal star Nicholas feels that the Foxes will provide a big threat to Liverpool FC’s unbeaten record and he is tipping them to claim a point from their trip to Anfield.
Writing in his column for Sky Sports, Nicholas said: “This is the ultimate test for Leicester. They are the real deal and could be close to breaking into the top six.
“They beat Tottenham and should have got something against Man United, but they will go to Anfield and take them on. Liverpool’s defence isn’t as good as last season and we knew that, but they are five points clear.
“Brendan Rodgers knows how dangerous their front three will be, he will try to block the full-backs too and that isn’t being defensive, it is being tactical.
“If Salzburg can score three times at Anfield then I’m sure Leicester could grab a goal.
“Liverpool have played well in some and stumbled in other, so this might be the one where they finally falter.”
Liverpool FC are aiming to try and win the Premier League title for the first time in their history this season after they finished second and just a point behind Manchester City last term.
