Liverpool looking forward to keeping its 2019/2020 record clear this weekend when they host Leicester City. This comes a week after their hard-fought 0-1 win at Bramall Lane against the newly-promoted Sheffield United. This match is scheduled for Saturday 5th October 2019 at Anfield Stadium starting from 15:00GMT.
The Reds are not ready to keep their eyes off the trophy after they missed it by a whisker last season. With 7 matches played in the Premier League, the Reds have managed to scoop all the 21 possible points. Sadio Mane was more than unfortunate to add a goal to his name in the 0-1 win over Sheffield but we are positive he is likely to pose an impeccable threat to the opposition visitors.
Leicester City, on the other hand, managed to rain goals on the 10-man New Castle United in their 5-0 win in their last Premier League action. The Foxes have also proven to be a tough team to beat especially when it plays against the big clubs. We believe they are not going to go down without a breathtaking fight.
This is likely among the most entertaining match of Saturday’s fixtures owing to the fact that most Liverpool haters are praying for them to lose and end their unbeaten record. However, Jurgen Klopp is likely to field his best team possible. The German tactician knows it well not to underrate any team this we believe his experience has shown him what to do best. No doubt the League leaders are going to keep their 2019/2020 record 100% intact.
