Leeds United vs Liverpool match preview

To paraphrase the famous Forrest Gump quote, Liverpool away from home and Leeds anywhere are both like a box of chocolates: you never know what you’re going to get.

Given that, this Monday night fixture has all the ingredients to serve up a classic.

On the road this season, Liverpool have won just three of 15 league outings, these victories coming at Tottenham, Aston Villa and Newcastle.

That means, away to teams currently seventh or below, the Reds have managed zero wins, four draws and suffered five defeats, scoring just three goals and conceding 13, mind-boggling figures.

At Anfield, Jürgen Klopp’s team remain more or less unbeatable, battling back from 2-0 down to hold league-leaders Arsenal to a draw on Easter Sunday.

Roberto Firmino bagging an 87th minute equaliser, before Mohammed Salah and Ibrahima Konaté came agonisingly close to winning it in stoppage time.

At home, Liverpool have only lost once in the Premier League, with fans present, since April 2017, and the team to beat them were Leeds United last October.

Thus, the Whites’ are now targeting a first league-double since 2000/01.

Last Sunday, the chaos was firmly back in West Yorkshire, with Leeds smashed 5-1 by Crystal Palace, despite dominating the first half and taking the lead through Patrick Bamford’s header.

Before that, Javi Gracia had won three of his first six matches in charge, leaving Leeds 16th, just two points clear of the drop zone.

Will the Elland Road faithful roar their team on to a crucial victory?
