Can Leicester City bounce back from an injury- and illness-addled 6-3 loss to Manchester City when it faces a rested Liverpool on Tuesday at the King Power Stadium (Watch live at 3pm ET Tuesday on NBCSN and online via NBCSports.com)?

The oddsmakers see it as quite a long shot, though Liverpool could be without key pieces as well following a weekend off and perhaps that, too, is reflected in the Leicester City vs Liverpool odds.

The Reds were set to take on Leeds but a COVID-19 outbreak amongst the opponents left Jurgen Klopp’s men watching the Boxing Day festivities from home.

So now they’ll meet Leicester for the second time in seven days come Tuesday.

These two went to penalties in their last meeting, which was…. last week. Liverpool advanced to the quarterfinals after the match finished 3-3.

Liverpool’s won 52 of their 117 meetings, losing on 40 occasions since the Reds’ 3-1 win over Leicester Fosse on Nov. 9, 1895. Expect that one to be occupying prime real estate in all parties come Tuesday.

Leicester vs Liverpool prediction

The rest of Liverpool versus the weariness of Leicester would be enough to call for a win on any other occasion, so why would we bet against the Reds. Yes, Leicester rested Wilfred Ndidi, Jamie Vardy, and Boubakary Soumare, but barring some remarkable recoveries it’s going to be very difficult for the hosts. Leicester 1-4 Liverpool.
