Premier League: Leicester City F.C. vs. Liverpool F.C. [How to watch, Prediction]
The Premier League continues with the sixth week of the 38-week season. Here is everything you need to know about Leicester City versus Liverpool.
Liverpool F.C. is meeting Leicester City on their turf at King Power Stadium on Saturday as the Premier League continues Matchday 6 of the 38-week season.
Kickoff is slated for 12:30 p.m. ET on Sept. 23. The matchday is being broadcast by multiple providers for those who call the game football, and soccer fans in the U.S. will be able to watch the match on NBC and Universo.
About 250 Premier League games this season will be televised on NBC, NBC SN and CNBC or available for streaming on NBC Sports Live. Another 130 games will be available exclusively on NBC Sports Gold. The Premier League Pass costs $50.
This is the second time in four days that Liverpool will meet Leicester.
The two met in the English League Cup where Leicester, currently in 15th in the Premier League, came away with a surprising 2-0 win.
It’s been an underwhelming start for Liverpool, which has not won a Premier League match since beating Arsenal 4-0 in late August.
Since then, the Reds were beaten by Manchester City 6-0 before drawing to Burnley last weekend and dropping five points back of the league leaders.
Mohamed Salah has been Liverpool’s go-to guy with three goals this season. That’s tied for fifth-best among all Premier League scorers.
Leicester has yet to win a league match this month also after a loss to Chelsea and a draw to Huddersfield. The 2015/16 champions have just four points this year and only sit outside the relegation zone because of their “superior” goal differential of minus-2.
