Predicted Leeds United XI, latest team and injury news vs Liverpool

Leeds United’s fixture list shows no sign of easing up in the Premier League as they head to Merseyside to face an in-form Liverpool side at Anfield later this evening.

The Whites have registered only one win in their last five outings, including their most recent result – a 4-2 defeat to Manchester United – whilst the Reds have won all their games in that timeframe.

Leeds fans, what is your prediction for tonight's clash?

This encounter is always exciting, very intense and usually contains plenty of goals, though the two teams played out a 1-1 draw at Elland Road earlier this season.

It will be interesting to see what sort of lineup Marcelo Bielsa will opt for after being dealt yet another injury blow ahead of kickoff. Here’s the XI we’re predicting…

There could be two changes from the side that tasted defeat in Sunday’s six-goal thriller.

Illan Meslier is set to continue between the sticks with the bulk of the back four in front of him remaining unchanged, barring the inclusion of Junior Firpo, who replaced Robin Koch just half an hour into the clash at Elland Road.

The 25-year-old slots in alongside Pascal Struijk and Diego Llorente in the middle, with Luke Ayling on the right.

The German has been ruled out with a concussion and joins the likes of skipper Liam Cooper, Kalvin Phillips and Patrick Bamford on the treatment table.

Leeds were beaten by Spurs in their first game of 2021 but what was the scoreline?

In midfield, we could therefore see Stuart Dallas and Adam Forshaw, with Mateusz Klich playing slightly further forward.

The second and final change may be in the attack as Raphinha is in line for a recall. He was a surprise omission from the starting XI at the weekend but he came off the bench to score.

He’ll join fellow goalscorer Rodrigo, who will lead the line, and left-winger Jack Harrison in the attack, meaning it could be club-record signing Daniel James who makes way.

The £16.2m-rated wide man has struggled to maintain consistency this season.
