This has been an entertaining fixture over the years with Liverpool doing better historically. Liverpool are unbeaten in their last eight league meetings with Leeds and have lost just one of their last nine league visits to Elland Road, going down 4-3 in November 2000 with Mark Viduka scoring all four of Leeds’ goals. The Reds have scored in each of their last 15 games against the Whites. Goals here are practically guaranteed.
In typical fashion, Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa keeps changes to his side to a minimum. There’s just one change to Leeds from their 1-1 draw against Burnley before the international break. Junior comes in for Struijk as Leeds revert to four at the back. Liverpool make two changes from their last game against Chelsea. Thiago and Jota come in for Henderson and the injured Roberto Firmino.
SUBS: Konstantinos Tsimikas, Ibrahima Konate, Joseph Gomez, Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jordan Henderson, Curtis Jones, Caoimhin Kelleher, James Milner.
LIVERPOOL (4-3-3): Alisson; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk (c), Andrew Robertson; Harvey Elliott, Fabinho, Thiago; Mohamed Salah, Diogo Jota, Sadio Mane.
SUBS: Crysencio Summerville, Charlie Cresswell, Jamie Shackleton, Tyler Roberts, Mateusz Klich, Pascal Struijk, Daniel James, Kristoffer Klaesson, Liam McCarron.
LEEDS UNITED (4-1-4-1): Illan Meslier; Luke Ayling, Diego Llorente, Liam Cooper (c), Junior Firpo; Kalvin Phillips; Raphinha, Stuart Dallas, Rodrigo Moreno, Jack Harrison; Patrick Bamford.
Liverpool may make Leeds wait a little longer for that first win though. Only Brentford are on a longer unbeaten run in England’s top four tiers than the Reds, who have also won their last four Premier League away games in a row. With all their title rivals winning earlier this weekend, Jurgen Klopp’s men will want to continue their strong start to the season.
After winning their last four league games last campaign, Leeds remain winless in the Premier League so far this season. The Whites have drawn their last two games though and are unbeaten in their last seven Premier League games at Elland Road, their longest run without defeat at home in the top-flight since 2001. That first win of the season is bound to come soon.
