Leeds vs Liverpool: Predictions
Jurgen Klopp’s men crashed out of the Champions League quarter-finals at the hands of Real Madrid in midweek, meaning the only thing remaining to play for this season is a place in the Premier League top four. The Reds have suffered a miserable defence of their English crown, sitting sixth ahead of this weekend’s games, three points adrift of West Ham in fourth and 22 behind leaders Manchester City.
And they’ll get no favours from this weekend’s hosts, Leeds, who are enjoying a three-match winning run, seeing off Fulham, Sheffield United and Man City by a 2-1 scoreline, doing so against the latter with 10 men. Marcelo Bielsa’s men can move to within four points of Liverpool with a win here but regardless of the outcome, their exciting attack and porous defence mean Leeds could make this a very exciting game.

Leeds vs Liverpool: Match Stats
Leeds have both scored and conceded exactly 49 Premier League goals this season – if they score and concede in this game, it will be the joint-second fewest games in which a team has both scored and conceded 50 goals in a single Premier League campaign (Tottenham 30 in 2007-08, QPR 32 in 1994-95).
Liverpool have won five of their last six away league games (L1), more than they had in their previous 15 on the road (W4 D6 L5). The Reds have also won each of their last four Premier League games in Yorkshire, last having a longer winning run in the county in the top-flight between March 1908-October 1909 (5).
Leeds have won each of their last three Premier League matches, with the Whites last winning four top-flight games in a row within the same season back in April 2001 (a run of six).
Mohamed Salah has scored 19 Premier League goals this season – he could become the first Liverpool player to reach 20 in three separate campaigns in the competition (also 2017-18 and 2018-19). Patrick Bamford, meanwhile, has scored 29% (14) of Leeds’ Premier League goals so far in 2020/21.
No side have scored more Premier League goals from outside the box than Leeds this season (12). Indeed, both of Leeds’ goals against Man City last time out were from outside the box, with both scored by Stuart Dallas from the Whites’ only two shots in the game.

Leeds haven’t beaten Liverpool in any competition since April 2001, while they haven’t won against the Reds at Elland Road since a 4-3 victory in November 2000. That said, they’ve only hosted Liverpool for three Premier League games since then.
Since the Premier League began, these two sides have shared just four draws in the competition.
