Liverpool and Leicester City have had mixed starts to the new season, with both sides sitting on four points ahead of their Premier League clash in Saturday's late kickoff. For the latter, this comes as little surprise -- despite being relatively busy in the summer transfer market, the general consensus is that lightning is unlikely to strike Leicester twice, and the defending champions would do well to secure a solid top-half finish this season.
For Liverpool supporters, however, their side's start may be a little more disappointing. Jürgen Klopp's first full season in charge promises much, and their dramatic victory away at Arsenal on the opening matchday suggested that they could be a force to be reckoned with. Unfortunately, the same old inconsistencies that have dogged the Merseysiders over the last few seasons struck again the following weekend, when they were beaten 2-0 by newly promoted Burnley.
For the neutral, all of this serves to set up one of the most intriguing encounters of the Premier League weekend. We'll move a teeny tiny bit closer to knowing if Liverpool are actually any good at all, and whether Leicester have any chance at all of upsetting the odds and mounting a title challenge for the second season running. It seems unlikely -- but then again, so did last season.
