Liverpool vs Leicester
Liverpool and Leicester both rank in the top 5 sides in the league when it comes to average match goals. Leicester average 3.31 goals and Liverpool average 3.27.
I think there’s a very good chance that Liverpool cover this line on their own tonight. They win 3-1 at Villa Park in the last game with an xG of over 3.00, which is incredible.
Liverpool average 0.93 cards per game, with their opponents averaging 1.47.
Leicester average 1.19 cards per game.
I expect Liverpool to dominate the ball and Leicester to break things up and try and upset them. I think it’s very likely that Liverpool don’t get a single card here.
Darwin Nunez has been registering 2.39 shots on target p/90 from 5.82 shots.
He managed 4 on target from 6 against Aston Villa.
Trent Alexander-Arnold averaged 90.8 passes p/90.
He stays on the pitch for an average of 71 minutes, which would have him at 72 passes already.
Liverpool average 61% possession. I can’t imagine Leicester offer a lot here and Liverpool should rack up the passes. I think TAA should go above his average minutes too given that he barely featured at the World Cup.
