Three Leeds danger men who could hurt Liverpool
Tonight, Leeds United visit Anfield for the first time since 2003, with the EFL Cup providing the platform to revive a rivalry that once sat at the very top of English football.
As we all know, the Whites are by no means the Champions League semi-final-reaching force of yesteryear, having exited the Premier League at the end of the 2003/04 campaign – they are still marching through the Football League wilderness amid their exile from the top flight.
But Leeds still boast a fantastic support and continue to carry that ‘big game’ feel, which has set up a scintillating night under the Anfield floodlights this evening.
Inevitably, most are backing Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool to progress to the semi-finals. They carry home advantage and have been excellent in the Premier League this season, netting the most goals (a whopping 32) of any team in the division.
But Leeds shouldn’t be underestimated. After a slow start to his Elland Road career, Garry Monk has masterminded the Yorkshire outfit’s route into the play-off spots and the players will enter tonight’s match feeling they have nothing to lose.
Likewise, this is one of the best Leeds squads we’ve seen for some time. So here’s a look at THREE dangermen who could inspire an upset at Anfield this evening.
