At home against Newcastle Sunday 29th September.

Just two games in the run-up for Leicester City and 4 games for Liverpool.

Having lost no games since the start of the EPL season perhaps Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are set for un upset. Group stages of the Champions League has proved a harder nut to crack after suffering a 2 – 0 defeat at the hands of Napoli in the opening game of the Champions League Group stages.

Underdogs Leicester may be a rising star in the league and be underated.  Brendon Rogers having left Celtic to manage Leicester has had money to spend after the sale of Harry Maguire to Manchester United for £80 million.  No body expects Leicester to pull off a Premier League victory like 2016 under Claudio Ranieri at odds of 5000 – 1, but under Roger’s Leicester City may be set to ruffle the feathers of the top teams in the EPL.
