Leeds United Vs Liverpool Prediction, Odds And Team News

One of the biggest rivalries in English football takes centre stage on Sunday afternoon as Leeds United host Liverpool at Elland Road.

Last season, the Reds gave up their Premier League crown without much resistance - finishing 19 points behind current champions Manchester City - but injuries to their defensive stalwarts undermined their chances.

Turning a new leaf, Jurgen Klopp's side have made an unbeaten start, easing past Norwich City and Burnley before drawing 1-1 with Chelsea before the international break.

Leeds, meanwhile, have made a slow start, collecting just two points from three games, but remain one of the most exciting teams in the league on their day.


Ahead of the game, our tipster Robert Mann takes a look at some of the best bets from Leeds United vs Liverpool to get your teeth stuck into.

Leeds United vs Liverpool betting tips & predictions

Leeds United are 10/3 to win, with Liverpool priced at 8/11 to come away with the victory. A draw is priced at 3/1.

Prediction: 0-2 (9/1)

First Corner: Leeds United (5/4)

Advert

Last season's end-to-end Elland Road fixture resulted in 18 corners in total and we're backing for more of the same on Sunday afternoon.

On the face of it, especially with a passionate home crowd behind them, Leeds should start on the front foot and we reckon the Whites to win the first corner looks like a solid option.

Match Result and Both Team To Score: Liverpool and Yes (2/1)

Advert

Liverpool are unbeaten in their last ten games against Leeds, but Marcelo Bielsa's side certainly made the Reds sweat last season. 

The two sides battled out a 4-3 thriller at Anfield on the opening day of the 2020/21 season and we're backing for this one to rain goals as well.

First Goalscorer: Mohamed Salah (10/3)

Goals pay the rent and Mohamed Salah has undoubtably paid his fair share, finishing second in the Golden Boot standings last season with 22 goals etched to his name.

Interestingly, Salah already has two for the season and even hit a hat-trick against Leeds last term and, as a result of that, we're backing the Egyptian to draw first blood in this one.
