Liverpool vs Leicester City Prediction: EFL Match | December 22, 2021
Liverpool haven’t won the EFL Cup in nearly ten years, but Jurgen Klopp’s side have a big chance to end that wait this season. They will face the defending FA Cup champions in this season’s quarter-finals.
EFL Cup Preview
Liverpool are the team that holds the record for the most wins in EFL Cup history up to the time of dominance that Manchester City has in recent times. The Red Devils have won the competition 8 times, the same number of times as Man City. However, it has been nine years since their last success in the league, with the most recent EFL Cup win being in 2012.
Klopp has won again with changes throughout the EFL Cup so far, but the Reds have had some problems getting through this stage of the tournament. Wednesday’s game against Leicester will be their first home game of the season after previously beating Norwich City and Preston away.
As of now, Liverpool have scored five goals in those two matches and have yet to concede a goal. Changes are likely to be made by Klopp again this week, but they have enough power to still raise questions for the Foxes.
The Foxes have won the EFL Cup three times in their history, with the most recent success coming in 2000. Leicester won the FA Cup for the first time last season and will seek a third success in less than a year. a year.
Leicester beat Millwall 2-0 in the third round, before beating Brighton in the fourth round at the end of October. The Foxes needed a penalty shootout at King Power in that game, after the scoreline drew 2-2 between the two sides.

Liverpool will make changes after the draw against Tottenham Hotspur. However, the Foxes are likely to name a similar team as they seek domestic success. That should give them the edge here, and we could see them get a win at Anfield.
