Few fixtures set pulses racing before a ball has even been kicked more than Leeds against Liverpool under two of the most high-octane, entertaining coaches the Premier League currently has to offer. Jurgen Klopp and Marcelo Bielsa love a fast-paced, rhythmic game so this should be another belter.

The Elland Road club have not particularly started the season as they would have hoped. Bielsa once again endured a drubbing at Old Trafford to start the new campaign, but they are now sailing in more settled waters after that tempestuous encounter against Man Utd, drawing back-to-back games.

Still, Leeds remain without a win after three matches, so there is a slight pressure on getting a result here, and in front of a packed Elland Road crowd, Bielsa’s charges should have an added impetus and fire to get on the pitch and potentially cause an upset against an in-form Liverpool.

The Merseysiders are in fine fiddle having won two games as well as collecting a point off Chelsea, though given they were playing the European champions with a numerical superiority for 45 minutes, that result will feel a tad underwhelming. Klopp will want to respond emphatically this Sunday.

Leeds vs Liverpool: Match Stats

Given how wide both these teams play as they look to stretch the turf as much as possible, it is no surprise to see their respective corner counts mightily high. Both managers utilise overlapping full-backs and get crosses into the box like no tomorrow. Liverpool, for their part, travel to West Yorkshire having registered the most corners of any team in the Premier League this season (31).

However, it may be from open play where Liverpool enjoy their success as Mohamed Salah will be itching to get on the scoresheet, not just in his quest for another Golden Boot, but because he is currently just one goal shy of bringing up his Premier League century. Should he bag against Leeds, then the Egyptian will be the fifth fastest player to reach 100 in the competition after Alan Shearer (124), Harry Kane (141), Sergio Aguero (147) and Thierry Henry (160).

Given the electricity of that seven-goal thriller at Anfield exactly a year ago when this weekend’s fixture rolls around, the 1-1 draw at Elland Road felt slightly underwhelming. But the scoreline certainly belied the contest, as it was a ferocious encounter, set to the backdrop of the Super League announcement, with both clubs sharing the spoils in an empty stadium. Expect the decibel levels to be slightly more audible this weekend.
