Leeds United v Liverpool Match Predictions & Trends

Leaky Leeds face rampant reds

Marcelo Bielsa famously sticks with his style no matter what. This often means goals at either end of the pitch. This season has proved no different so far with his Leeds side failing to keep a clean sheet in the opening three fixtures but managing to score in every game. The sometimes suspect defense will be tested on Sunday as Liverpool travel to Elland Road in great goalscoring form.

Despite the absence of Roberto Firmino, Jurgen Klopp can still call on the likes of Sadio Mane, Diogo Jota, and Mo Salah to get the goals. The reds will be boosted by the expected return of stalwart James Milner who may be fit enough to take his place on the bench against his former side.

Star Leeds striker Patrick Bamford won his first England cap in the international break and will be buzzing with confidence upon his return to league action. Having played for England, Kalvin Phillips will hope to regain his place in Bielsa’s side after being left out recently due to a lack of match sharpness.

Liverpool have scored first in all of their away fixtures this season and Leeds have gone behind in 100% of their home games.
