Happy holidays everyone!
While you’re getting in a festive mood, it’s about to get really ‘detty’ in the Premier League with teams set to play at least twice in the next four days. For fans, it adds more color to what’s already colorful festive period.
For the players and managers, however, it’s the most dreaded part of the holidays for so many reasons. With so many games, players face the risk of suffering fatigue and being vulnerable to injuries. Regardless, the show must go on.

On Boxing Day (December 26th), all roads lead to various football stadiums in England where action will be underway. Of all the games to be played, only one stands out, the top-of-the-table clash between Leicester and Liverpool.
With a 10-point lead at the top of the table, the PL title is now Liverpool’s to lose. Fresh from conquering the world at the just-concluded FIFA Club World Cup, the Reds have a chance to increase the gap when they face Leicester City.

The Reds have been perfect at home this season, winning all available 27 points. Away from home, they only dropped points to Manchester United, a game that ended in a draw. They will fancy their chances against a side that Man. City schooled just a couple of days back.
However, the Foxes remain a formidable opponent for any side, regardless. And the Reds will never forget their first meeting this season where they required a 95th-minute penalty to defeat Brendan Rodgers’ men.
For Leicester, it’s the perfect chance to ‘do the Lord’s work’ for the rest of the league and halt Liverpool’s run. They’ll also be looking to bounce back from their defeat at the Etihad Stadium, a first defeat since suffering a 2-1 loss at the hands of Liverpool.

While Liverpool (42 goals) have scored one more goal than Leicester (41), both teams have conceded the same amount of goals (14). However, Leicester have kept seven clean sheets in the last 17 Premier League games. Boasting a solid defense and playing in front of their home fans, Leicester City have what it takes to bring Liverpool’s unbeaten run to a halt.
Then there’s Jamie Vardy, the league’s highest goal-scorer. His goals total (17) is just one short of the total that Mohamed Salah and Saido Mane have scored this season (18). Although he failed to score in the first meeting, the 32-year-old is likely to find the back of the net in this first-versus-second clash.
