Liverpool: The Reds have never won a Premier League, but this feels like it could be the season. A dominant start without star goalkeeper Alisson has been impressive enough, and the team should be getting him back in the coming weeks ahead of Champions League play continuing. The 4-3 win over Red Bull Salzburg midweek gives them plenty to work on defensively.
Leicester City: What a start to the season. The team is playing confident, and Jamie Vardy looks sharp. He’s got five goals in eight games this season and is well on his way to breaking last season’s mark of 18. He’ll be tasked with finding the net in this one to give the Foxes a chance at a result.
Liverpool vs. Leicester City prediction
The Reds score three more goals at Anfield and get a fine victory ahead of the international break.
Pick: Liverpool 3, Leicester City 1
