Liverpool’s undefeated home Premier League record was put to the test against the unlikeliest of opponents last time out as they came from behind to beat Norwich 3-1. Hours after the rampant ‘Reds’ eighth successive victory in all competitions, league-leaders Manchester City lost to Tottenham, meaning a win here for Liverpool can close the gap at the top to just three points! The league’s highest scorers (64) also own the best home defence in the league with just seven goals conceded. It’s therefore no surprise that Jürgen Klopp’s side has the most home wins by 2 goals this Premier League campaign with eight, and having scored in each of the 15 competitive H2H matches with visitors Leeds United this century, they’ll be confident of adding further to that tally.

Leeds United

That makes the quest all the more daunting for Leeds, with the 3-0 loss in the reverse fixture being the 11th successive game without victory over their hosts. Their current 11-game streak this season has produced only two victories, and considering seven of these games saw the same half-time/full-time result, setting the tone early could be decisive. With 12 points less than at this stage last season, teams seem to have worked out Leeds, bringing the style of influential coach Marco Biesla into question. Whether Biesla can change things at all remains in question, but they’ll be seeing the relegation zone approaching in the rear-view mirror if their form doesn’t improve soon. Anfield seems an unlikely place to start though, especially as the ‘Whites’ have conceded a league-high 29 goals – including at least two in each of their last five away Premier League matches.

 

Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah netted the opener in the reverse fixture, and has seen nine of his 14 Premier League goals scored since arrive after half-time, while Leeds’ Raphinha has proven himself a big-game player, with his last three Premier League goals coming against opponents regarded to be in the Premier League’s ‘Big-6’. No team in Europe’s big-five leagues has a better goal difference from the 76th minute onwards than Liverpool’s 12.
