After a scintillating draw at Anfield, Liverpool travel to a treasured hunting ground as they face Leeds United at Elland Road
Liverpool travels to a cherished hunting ground to take on Leeds United at Elland Road following a thrilling draw at Anfield.
If Leeds United wants to avoid being relegated from the Premier League this year, they will need to win their remaining slate of games. With only seven victories throughout the entire season, Javi Gracia’s team has had a below-average season, and their performance last week against Crystal Palace was proof of that.
As Roy Hodgson’s team wreaked havoc on the Whites, defeating them by a score of 5-1, Patrick Bamford’s goal midway through the first half was the sole moment of joy for the Elland Road crowd.
United has only dropped two games in their previous five games, and with Southampton, Nottingham Forest, and Leicester City all dropping points over the weekend, the squad has a great chance to pass West Ham United.
Liverpool is seeking a stunning conclusion to the season as they travel to Elland Road to face Leeds United, one week after securing a critical draw against league leaders Arsenal at home. In a thrilling game at Anfield, Jurgen Klopp’s team rallied from two goals down to tie the score.
In the second half of the game, the Reds appeared to be the more dominant team and had Mo Salah’s penalty attempt has been successful, they might have won.
Liverpool could be proud of their performance against the Gunners despite having a disastrous domestic season, as they attempt to earn a Europa League position with a top-4 finish seemingly out of reach.
The Reds have lost their last five games, dropping them to eighth place in the league rankings despite the heroic performance they put on last week in their own backyard.
Jurgen Klopp would be vying to add another victory to his record at a stadium where they haven’t lost a game in more than two years with just three victories on the road this season.

Meslier; Nissen; Koch; Struijk; Firpo; McKennie; Roca; Harrison; Aaronson; Sinisterra; Rodrigo make up the Leeds United XI (4-2-3-1).
