Liverpool will be trying to pick up their third Premier League win in a row when they play host to Leicester City at Anfield on Friday night. The Reds came back to the top flight with a 3-1 victory at home to Aston Villa on Boxing Day. Meanwhile, the visitors were taken down 3-0 by a rampant Newcastle United.
It’s safe to say that the Liverpool fans were having a wonderful Christmas as Liverpool returned from the World Cup break picking up all three points against Aston Villa, while also managing to sign coveted Dutch attacker Cody Gakpo before Manchester United did.
With all the excitement of another high-profile striker arriving in January, Liverpool had to thank their good fortune at times against Aston Villa as goals from Mohamed Salah, Virgil van Dijk and 18-year-old Stefan Bajcetic made Ollie Watkins’ reply a vain effort.
Rounding off a highly successful, but also up-and-down 2022 season with a sixth consecutive win in competitive action is no less than the Anfield faithful will be hoping for this week, and only a single one of their last 31 Premier League home games has ended in defeat, albeit that came at the hands of Leeds United merely two months ago.
Now looking at the other side, a Chris Wood penalty, a Miguel Almiron finish and a Joelinton header gave the Magpies all three points in a first half in which Leicester were just ghosts of their former selves, as they had conceded just one goal in seven games before the World Cup break.
Four points still separate the thirteenth-placed Foxes from the danger zone, meaning the visitors to Anfield will enter 2023 barely above the dotted line no matter what happens in this week’s fixtures, but those in blue will not remember this calendar year too fondly.
On a more positive note, Brendan Rodgers’ side can certainly be motivated enough by a streak of wins while playing on the road, picking up four straight wins away in all competitions, while also keeping four clean sheets to boot, including Premier League successes against the Wanderers, Everton and West Ham United.
