Leeds Vs Liverpool - Prediction, Team News, Stream And Odds

Leeds United and Liverpool will both be out to secure their fourth consecutive wins in the Premier League when the two historic English sides clash at Elland Road on Monday night.

Marcelo Bielsa's men secured one of the shocks of the season as they beat Manchester City with ten men last Saturday, while Liverpool have revived their top-four hopes in recent weeks and defeated Aston Villa last weekend.

Jurgen Klopp's Reds were knocked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid on Wednesday, but can go fourth in the race to return to that competition with three points at Elland Road.

Liverpool will be hoping to capitalise on favourable results from the weekend after West Ham were beaten by Newcastle, and Everton and Tottenham both dropped points in playing out a 2-2 draw at Goodison Park.

The reverse fixture, played at Anfield on the opening weekend of the season, was a captivating affair that saw Liverpool complete a narrow 4-3 win over Leeds.

Ahead of the latest meeting between the two sides, SPORTbible takes a closer look at the encounter...

Predictions

Liverpool were wasteful against Real Madrid on Wednesday, but played well and looked closer to their best in the 0-0 draw at Anfield.

Meanwhile, Leeds can be forgiven for viewing the visit to Liverpool as another winnable tie given their exploits at the Etihad, but the champions - soon to be dethroned- are always capable of producing the goods away from home.

The possible absence of Raphinha would be a killer blow to the hosts' attacking prowess, and while the Whites should still have enough about them to find the back of the net, Klopp's men are in prime position to secure a vital three points.

Team news and injuries

Leeds captain Liam Cooper begins a three-match suspension following his straight red card against Manchester City, so Robin Koch will hope to be given the nod in the heart of defence over Pascal Struijk.

Meanwhile, Jack Harrison returns to the side after being unable to face Manchester City - his parent club - as Leeds continue to sweat over the fitness of Raphina, who was forced off with seconds remaining at the Etihad.

Deadly attacker Rodrigo remains out of contention as he battles his way back from a muscular issue, and Helder Costa could keep his spot in the team if Raphinha does not make the cut.

For Liverpool, as well as long-term absentees Jordan Henderson, Joe Gomez, Joel Matip and Virgil van Dijk, Curtis Jones' muscular issue appears to be more serious than first thought, as he was not involved in any capacity against Real Madrid.

Klopp's decision to start Roberto Firmino over Diogo Jota did not play dividends in midweek, so the Portuguese attacker will certainly hope to be featured in tonight's game.

James Milner was given the nod in midfield over Thiago for the visit of Real, but the Spaniard - along with Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - are both pushing for inclusion in the middle.
