Liverpool – Leeds : Preview & Prediction
Liverpool, undefeated in the league at Anfield Road for nearly three and a half years, are unlikely to miss a victory over Leeds United, who had just been promoted to the Premier League this season. Will the Reds therefore line up a 60th unbeaten league game in their garden ?. Everything suggests that “yes”. The partners of Salah, revenge after a first trophy lost during the Community Shield against Arsenal (1-1, 4 tab 5) on August 29, subsequently crushed Blackpool (7-2) during a friendly meeting, the 3rd of the summer, on September 5th. Mane and Firmino notably stood out and are already ready to challenge the formation of Marcelo Bielsa. Leeds United are making their return to the Premier League after a 16-year absence and already inheriting a big chunk from the start before having a more lenient schedule with Hull City, Fulham and Sheffield United. Rodrigo’s teammates did not play any friendlies this summer but ended the Championship season on July 22 with a large victory in front of Charlton, the 6th in a row at the end of last season. It could be that this first test is not conclusive for a team of Leeds United which will bet everything on the receptions of Hull City and Fulham in days 2 and 3.
