Preview: Leeds United vs Liverpool – prediction, team news, line-ups

Liverpool will be desperately looking for a victory when they make the trip to Elland Road to play Leeds United on Monday night. 

The Whites suffered a demoralising 5-1 defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace last Sunday in a big blow to their hopes of Premier League survival. 

Such a thrashing looked very unlikely after the hosts’ first-half dominance saw Patrick Bamford registering his 50th goal for the club. 

However, Palace roared back in the game after conceding an early goal, with Marc Guehi scoring the equaliser on the stroke of half-time. 

In a completely one-sided second half, the visitors pounded their opponents with four more goals with Jordan Ayew bagging a brace while Eberechi Eze and Odsonne Edouard also earned their names on the scoresheet. 

The latest defeat leaves Javi Gracia’s side just two points off the drop zone in 16th spot in the table. 

Meanwhile, Liverpool are also enduring a tough period with the Merseyside outfit winless in their previous five matches in all competitions. 

Their most recent league encounter saw them playing out a 2-2 draw with Arsenal at Anfield. 

The Reds made a poor start to the match as they conceded two goals within the first 30 minutes. 

But Mohamed Salah’s strike just before the break got his side back in the game. 

The Egyptian star had the brilliant opportunity to restore parity early in the second-half when the Reds were awarded a spot-kick after Rob Holding tripped Diogo Jota in the box. 

But Salah failed to convert his spot-kick as he sent his penalty wide of the post. 

Liverpool still kept up a huge pressure on the Gunners and were only kept at bay due to Aaron Ramsdale’s brilliance between the sticks. 

However, Roberto Firmino finally found the back of the net with a superb header late in the game as the Reds secured a 2-2 draw at Anfield.
