Sunday at Elland Road, as Leeds host Liverpool in the Premier League.

Currently sitting in fifth place, Liverpool will travel to Leeds, who are 10 places lower in the League and sit in fifteenth place.

With the Premier League season well into its stride, Leeds United have managed to gain two points

Having dropped a total of four points in their past two games, Marcelo Bielsa won’t be devastated by those results, but will be eager to secure a consistent run of form.

Leeds seem unable to get over the line on a consistent basis, with two draws in two meetings. With fifteenth, they currently sit two points in the League drawn two games and lost one game.

When Leeds host Liverpool, they will do so on the back of one draws on their own ground.

A victory for Leeds United would put them on 5 points.

Marcelo Bielsa could be missing up to four of their players through injury or illness for the game on Sunday.

This season’s Premier League campaign, has so far seen Liverpool achieve seven points

Liverpool will be hoping for a win, following a disappointing 1-1 home draw against Chelsea in their last game.

Liverpool have developed a habit of drawing football matches this season, which is reflected by their position in the table. With seven points, they currently sit fifth in the League having won two matches and drawn one game.

Liverpool will travel to Leeds with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with one win.

Victory for Liverpool would take their points tally to 10 so far this season.

Good Attacking Performance

They have a good scoring record of six goals (5 from open play and one penalty). This is largely down to the efforts of their stand-out attackers – Mohamed Salah (2), Diogo Jota (2), and Roberto Firmino (1). Liverpool’s defence has been rock solid so far, only conceding one goal so far.

It is likely that eight key players will miss Sunday’s fixture, which is something of a concern for Jurgen Klopp and his Liverpool team.

Leeds United v Liverpool – Head-to-Head.

When these two sides meet, a draw is never usually the expected outcome. In the past 26 matches, Liverpool have won 16 wins and Leeds six victories. In their most recent meeting of this fixture was April 2021 and the score line ended up with a 1-1 draw. With both sides conceding goals in their most recent game together, the probability of both sides scoring on Sunday is 66.67%.

The match odds suggest a 58.48 percent probability of a Liverpool win.
