Liverpool will battle it out with Leicester tomorrow for a chance to go back top of the table.

If we remove that result from Liverpool’s sample of matches this season and compare it to Leicester’s current averages in terms of both xGA and goals conceded per game, both teams would be posting almost identical numbers (Leicester xGA 1/Goals against 1.13 vs 1.09 Goals against/xGA 1.13  Liverpool).

Therefore, despite being one point worse off and having a worse defensive record on paper, it does seem as though Klopp’s Liverpool boast the more sustainable numbers in attack and very similar performance levels to Sunday's visitors in defence.

In terms of Expected Goals (xG), Leicester rank third in the table just behind Spurs in second and Liverpool in first.

This is worth noting because there’s an argument to say that the same has inflated the underlying attacking numbers of Leicester, whereas Liverpool’s attacking numbers still look fairly impressive even without penalty contributions.

A crucial difference between the two though is the number of penalties Leicester have been awarded in comparison to Liverpool, with the Foxes' total of eight boosting their goal tally by seven.
