We have an opportunity to back Liverpool at odds-against on Boxing Day and that looks an attractive price despite the fact that the Reds have been in Qatar competing in the World Club Championship.

Indeed, Jurgen Klopp’s side jetted out to Asia after beating Watford 2-0 and will now return for a tricky clash at the King Power Stadium to face a Leicester City team who sit second in the Premier League table after winning games for fun.

However, let’s not forget that Liverpool have won seven of their eight matches on the road this season, with Manchester United the only team to deny the Merseyside team a Premier League victory this season.

The runaway leaders haven’t always been convincing when winning matches, although it’s become a habit and the way in which they recently overcame Salzburg in the Champions League illustrated strong game management.

Brendan Rodgers comes up against his former club for this Boxing Day showdown and he can count on the stadium bouncing for this big clash which is reminiscent of when Jamie Vardy scored that wonder goal en route to helping the Foxes lift the Premier League trophy in 2016.

The Midlands side are unbeaten on home soil this season although they were recently held to a 1-1 draw by Norwich City and Wolverhampton Wanderers have also left with a point this term.

It’s fair that Leicester’s defence has been excellent although they’ll clash with a Liverpool team who are likely to be at full-strength and that means Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah probing away at the home team’s rearguard.

While Fabinho will be a miss for the visitors, they have enough strength in reserve to pass yet another title test with flying colours and put Leicester back in their box.
