Tip Reasoning

  • Liverpool have seven points from three games so far.
  • Leeds are unbeaten in their last three games in all competitions, but are yet to win in the Premier League.

Liverpool looking for response to Chelsea setback

Both sides have been handed selection boosts ahead of this contest as England-based South American players have avoided bans for failures to report for international duty, meaning Leeds can call on Raphina and Liverpool have Alisson Becker and Fabinho available.

The hosts could hand a debut to new signing Daniel James and Liverpool have Virgil van Dijk available, but Roberto Firmino is missing due to injury.

Liverpool can triumph in West Yorkshire

Liverpool’s perfect start to the season was ended by Chelsea before the international break as they were held to a draw despite playing against 10-men for the entire second half, but they can get back to winning ways against a Leeds outfit who are yet to really get going this season.

The Whites were thrashed 5-1 at Manchester United in the opening round of fixtures but are unbeaten in three games across all competitions since. However, they remain winless in the Premier League after back-to-back draws with Everton (h) and Burnley (a) and that is unlikely to change on Sunday.

Liverpool overcame Norwich 3-0 in their only away game so far this season and have won their last four in a row on their travels.  Leeds were the last side to deny Jurgen Klopp’s men all three points on the road as they held them to a 1-1 draw last season, with a late Diego Llorente effort cancelling out Sadio Mane’s opener.  

The hosts will make a game of this but their form so far doesn’t suggest they can get a result here, and a win for Liverpool is my main tip in this match-up.

Expect goals at Elland Road

Liverpool have managed two clean sheets in three games but those shut-outs came against Norwich and Burnley, and Leeds will provide a bigger test to the Reds’ backline.  The West Yorkshire outfit have scored in all four of their games across all competitions so far this season and as both sides scored in both meetings between the two teams last season the hosts should at least be able to get on the scoresheet on Sunday.  With that in mind, a 3-1 win for the visitors is my correct score prediction.

A Mane strike has a chance

As mentioned earlier, Mane scored in the corresponding fixture last season and looks a candidate for an anytime effort this weekend.  The Senegal star has just one goal in three Premier League games so far but he did score in both of his appearances for his country over the international break.

Leeds predicted lineup: Meslier, Ayling, Cooper, Llorente, Raphina, Phillips, Rodrigo, Dallas, James, Bamford, Harrison (5-4-1)

Liverpool predicted lineup: Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Thiago, Fabinho, Henderson, Salah, Jota, Mane (4-3-3)

  • Both teams to score has been a winning bet in Leeds’ last three Premier League home games
  • Five of Leeds’ last seven Premier League games have ended with over 3.5 goals
