Merseyside Magic: Liverpool and Leicester Lock Horns in EFL Cup Duel

Key Stats
– Liverpool unbeaten in their last 18 games across all competitions.
– Leicester City have amassed 21 points from their last eight Championship games.
– Mohamed Salah tops Liverpool’s goal-scoring chart with three goals in the Premier League.

The illustrious Anfield is set to host a scintillating EFL Cup third-round encounter as Championship leaders, Leicester City, make their much-anticipated return to face the Premier League giants, Liverpool. Leicester, after putting aside Burton Albion and Tranmere Rovers with identical 2-0 victories, are ready to face the Merseyside might. On the other side, Jurgen Klopp’s men have yet to break a sweat in this tournament.

Liverpool’s Impressive Form

Having registered three consecutive 3-1 wins against the likes of Wolverhampton Wanderers, LASK Linz, and West Ham United, Liverpool’s formidable form is apparent. With both Arsenal and Tottenham dropping points recently, the Reds have quickly seized the opportunity, moving up to a tantalising second place in the Premier League table, trailing Manchester City by just two points.

Their recent victory against West Ham was particularly noteworthy. While Mohamed Salah opened the score from the penalty spot, West Ham managed to pull one back with Jarrod Bowen’s brave header. However, the second half saw Liverpool’s prowess with Darwin Nunez and Diogo Jota adding their names to the scoresheet.

Liverpool, with a staggering 18 games unbeaten streak since their April hiccup against Manchester City, have displayed dominance throughout. Furthermore, their expertise in the EFL Cup, with nine titles under their belt, is evident.

Leicester’s Redemption Arc

The Foxes, after facing relegation and a bitter 3-0 defeat against Liverpool in the previous Premier League season, have emerged stronger under the leadership of Enzo Maresca. Taking a whopping 21 points from a possible 24 in the current Championship season, they sit comfortably at the top. Their sole loss came against Hull City, but they’ve since bounced back with three back-to-back victories.

The evergreen Jamie Vardy continues to impress. His crucial penalty against Bristol City and his subsequent celebration showed that age is just a number for the Leicester talisman.

Injury Concerns and Squad News

Liverpool’s potential line-up could see some changes. Although Klopp remains hopeful for Trent Alexander-Arnold’s return, the chance remains slim. Thiago Alcantara’s return seems to be delayed until October. Meanwhile, the likes of Ryan Gravenberch, Caoimhin Kelleher, and Ben Doak could feature prominently.

For Leicester, their injury list includes Dennis Praet, Tom Cannon, and a recent addition, Callum Doyle. However, they’re expected to field a strong XI, given the significance of the clash.

Statistical Breakdown and Analysis


  • Average Rating: 7.04 (Ranked 8/20 in Premier League)
  • Goals scored per game: 2.5
  • Corners per game: 6.8
  • Top scorer: Mohamed Salah with 3 goals.


  • Average Rating: 7.17 (Ranked 1/24 in Championship)
  • Goals scored per game: 1.8
  • Corners per game: 5.5
  • Top scorer in EFL Cup: Jamie Vardy.


1. Match Outcome: Liverpool to Win

When it comes to form, Liverpool are undeniably on a roll. Their impressive winning streak across all tournaments stands at six matches, and they have not been defeated in the last 18 competitive fixtures, dating back to April. This consistency and confidence will surely factor in when they welcome the Championship leaders to Anfield. Leicester, although performing commendably in the Championship, recently succumbed to a 1-0 defeat against Hull City, displaying their vulnerabilities. Furthermore, with Liverpool’s proven track record in the EFL Cup and their close chase to Premier League leaders Manchester City, Jurgen Klopp’s men will be motivated to deliver yet another compelling performance. Taking these aspects into consideration, Liverpool emerge as the favourites to secure a win.

2. Correct Score Prediction: 3-1 to Liverpool

If recent performances are anything to go by, Liverpool have been quite consistent with their attacking prowess. They have managed to register three successive 3-1 victories in their previous fixtures. On the other hand, Leicester have shown they can find the net, but their defence might be tested against Liverpool’s high-calibre attack. Given Liverpool’s ability to maintain a healthy scoring rate at home and the expected return of some of their star players, a 3-1 scoreline in favour of the Reds seems a plausible outcome.

3. Goalscorer Prediction: Mohamed Salah

The Egyptian king, Mohamed Salah, stands out as the most probable player to find the back of the net. His statistics from the current season speak for themselves; with the highest average rating for Liverpool and being their top goal scorer, he is a force to be reckoned with. Moreover, his penchant for stepping up in crucial games and his stellar performance in the recent past, where he broke the deadlock against West Ham, further cements his credentials. Considering all this, Salah is the prime candidate to add to his goal tally against Leicester.

4. Corner Prediction: Liverpool to have more corners

A game’s flow, especially in terms of attacking intent, can often be represented by the number of corners a team wins. Historically, the team pressing more tends to win more corners. With Liverpool’s average of 6.8 corners per game compared to Leicester’s 5.5, it becomes evident that Liverpool, especially at Anfield, will exert dominance and press high. Their attacking trident of Salah, Jota, and Núñez is known to put defenders under constant pressure, leading to more corners. As such, it’s quite likely that Liverpool will register more corners than their Championship adversaries.
