LEICESTER CITY VS LIVERPOOL
| Thursday, December 26th |
Premier League | King Power Stadium
8PM GMT/3PM EST
Liverpool have a game in hand and an opportunity to stretch their lead atop the table to 13 points tonight. Of course, Leicester City and Brendan Rodgers will have other outcomes in mind, and rightfully so. Along with Manchester City away, this represents one of the most difficult potential stumbling blocks on the way in. Liverpool will want all three points, but a draw is far from a bad result given Leicester City’s stellar form in the first half of the campaign. The Foxes pushed the Reds to the last minute at Anfield, requiring some last-minute heroics from the spot from James Milner. No matter the result, it likely won’t be easy going tonight.
