Salah & Alisson could clinch record-breaking stats for LFC against Leicester
Mohamed Salah has always been the star in Liverpool’s success over the last couple of seasons. He has always delivered when his team needed him the most. Last season’s Premier League golden boot winner is looking in good touch this season as well.
The Egyptian King registered 7 goals and 4 assists in 15 matches in the Premier League so far this season. Moreover, the Liverpool forward also has 7 goals and 1 assist in UCL as well.
The forward right now has 172 goals (level with Kenny Dalglish) for Liverpool. One more goal will make him Liverpool’s 7th highest scorer of all time. Last season he had a penalty saved against Leicester. This resulted in the Foxes winning the match 1-0. Let’s see if the Egyptian King can make an impact today and surpass Kenny Dalglish.
After losing in a penalty shootout against Croatia in World Cup, Alisson might be low on confidence. However, the Brazilian goalkeeper has always been consistent for the Reds. Moreover, Liverpool’s no. 1 is performing brilliantly in the League this season.
Alisson right now has 68 clean sheets. This is the second most for Liverpool in Premier League history. He’s just behind David James who has 72.
The Liverpool goalkeeper has two clean sheets against Leicester City in the last two matches at home in the League. Furthermore, if he manages to keep a clean sheet today it will be the third in succession at home against the Foxes for the first time in their league history.
Firmino making a return
Roberto Firmino will be making a return against the Foxes on Friday. He was suffering from a hamstring injury. The Brazilian forward has the most goals for the Merseyside giants against Leicester in the League scoring 6 times against the Foxes.
At one end, Klopp’s troop will be looking to close the gap at the Top 4 spot while on another end, Brandon Rogers’s side will look to grab onto a spot in the upper half of the table.
