Premier League Action: Leicester vs LiverpoolPublished February 2, 2016 by Sol FH
Leicester continues to shock, but can they beat Liverpool for the first time this season? Find out tonight at 19:45 GMT.
When you think of the top names in the Premier League, Leicester was not always a team that would be anywhere near the top of the table. What they have been able to do this season is astonishing and they still reside in first place now on Matchday 24. Leicester are out in front by three points over Manchester City and Arsenal, but face a challenge tonight against the Reds, which could see them drop to third if they do not win.
Claudio Ranieri cannot yet believe that he has led his squad this far in first place. To think that the end of the season is only 15 games away, Leicester are pulling off a David vs Goliath situation and are in striking distance of raising the league trophy over their heads at Stamford Bridge on the final day. “I am a positive man and a positive man takes everything step by step,” Ranieri related. “But you are moving too fast, like a Formula One car.”
Liverpool have beaten Leicester twice this season and drawn with them once, and they are confident that tonight will be another victory. In fact Arsenal is the only other team to beat Leicester this season and it seems like the Reds do have Ranieri's number.
