Leicester City is in for a shock this season even though the best online freebet offers are not at the crazy 5000/1 odds of last year when they won the title. Like Chelsea the year before, everyone is out to beat the champions and it add to the pressure. They are currently in 9th place after managing to secure 4 points from a possible nine. Now that the transfer window is closed, it will help the team be focused on the job in hand. Many of the players got their heads turned by huge offers during the transfer window and it has definitely had an impact on their play. With the added pressure of playing in the Champions League, they will be very lucky to finish in the top 4 to qualify again.
Leicester started the season dreadfully after been beaten by newly promoted Hull City. Since then they have managed to draw against Arsenal and in their last match out beat Swansea City. They have bought a number of new additions to the squad, this time, around, and it is going to take them time to get used to playing together. The thing that won them the title last season was their dressing room bond with each player will to give all for their team. They will need that same spirit this year if they are again to become surprise contenders for the title. Betting offers for them to achieve it are still extremely high even after been crowned champions, but I think the will go down as one season wonders.
A lot is expected this season from Liverpool fans as manager Jurgen Klopp will have no excuses if his team does not perform. Last year he came in halfway through the year and did not have the personnel to suit his tactics. This time around there can be no excuses and a minimum requirement will be a top four finish from the German manager.
So far things do not look any different at Anfield. One game they can be brilliant like the 4 – 3 win against Arsenal in the first game of the season. They then followed that up with a 2 – 0 loss to newly promoted Burnley. Consistency has been Liverpool’s Achilles heel for the last decade and until they can perform as well against the lower teams as they can against the top team, they will not win the title. The best betting offers would be to put money on them sneaking a top four finish rather than being crowned champions.
Leicester home record is far superior to their away record so I am predicting a Liverpool win. I expect there to be lots of goals in the game and if Leicester manages to get ahead, they showed last season they are very tough to beat. If the Reds are going to get the result they will need to get off to a flyer. If not when they are chasing the game later in the match they could be hit by Leicester counter attack. I think that the best freebet offers are for a scoring draw but I am predicting the Liverpool will win this one.
