Liverpool will face Leeds at Elland Road in the Premier League in front of fans for the first time since 2004 when they meet in the Premier League this afternoon.

The two sides played out a 1-1 draw in this fixture at Elland Road last season, in a match that was overshadowed by the announcement of the ill-fated European Super League and was played behind closed doors.

Jurgen Klopp’s side have picked up seven points from their opening three games of the season but were left rueing a missed opportunity in their last match as they were held by 10-man Chelsea at Anfield.

Confirmed line-ups

Leeds: Meslier; Ayling, Cooper, Llorente, Firpo; Phillips, Dallas; Raphinha, Rodrigo, Harrison; Bamford

Liverpool: Alisson; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson; Fabinho, Thiago, Elliott; Mane, Salah, Jota

Odds

Leeds: 10/3

Draw: 3/1

Liverpool: 3/4

Prediction

After the frustration of failing to break down 10-man Chelsea’s low block in the second half at Anfield, the likes of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane are set to enjoy the space that will likely open up at Elland Road. The absence of Alisson is a concern for Liverpool but Kelleher filled in admirably last season and will be boosted by the presence of Virgil van Dijk in Liverpool’s defence. Leeds have yet to click so far this season and the loss of Raphinha could be the most significant one of the day. Leeds 1-3 Liverpool
