Venue: Elland Road, Leeds, West Yorkshire

Time: 18th April, 12.30 am

Leeds v Liverpool Preview:

Jurgen Klopp’s men travel to Elland road as they face a relegation fighting Leeds in matchday 31 of the Premier League. Sitting currently on 27 points, Javi Gracia’s men are just two points better off than 18th placed Nottingham Forest. They were demolished last time around by Crystal Palace, conceding 5 goals in the second half itself, eventually losing the game 5-1. Defeats for their relegation rivals Leicester City, Everton, Nottingham Forest and Southampton helped the Whites’ cause as they have a two point buffer going into this game. Despite having the second worst defensive record this season, the defeat to the Eagles was Leeds’ only second loss in the last five matches. Although Javi Gracia’s men haven’t been defensively sound, they’ll be optimistic with their attack, having scored in each of their last five matches – and with Liverpool leaking goals for fun, it’ll be a matter of who scores more than they concede.

Jurgen Klopp’s men on the other hand are winless in their last five games in all competitions after the 7-0 onslaught against Manchester United at Anfield. Ramsdale was the difference between one and three points last weekend, as Liverpool came back from a two goal deficit against the Gunners. With Salah missing yet another penalty, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him taken off pens and Fabinho taking them. The Reds currently sit eighth, and with both Villa and Brighton winning their games on Saturday, Liverpool cannot afford any more slip ups if they intend playing in Europe next season. Another winless game could see Liverpool going without a win for six games for the first time under Klopp. Thiago looks set to return to the Liverpool lineup. With two bad defenses on display, the predictions could be in for a goal fest on Monday night.

Leeds 1-2 Liverpool
