Liverpool Team News & Preview
Liverpool host Leeds United in the EFL cup this week and Jurgen Klopp‘s men will be looking to secure safe passage to the next round with a comfortable home win.
The Reds have been in spectacular form this season and have lost just once in all competitions so far. The home side picked up a comfortable 2-0 win over Sunderland during the weekend and will fancy another easy home win this week.
Liverpool cannot afford to be complacent here, especially with all the injuries they have. Klopp will be without several key players for Tuesday night’s game. Coutinho, Firmino, Sturridge, Lallana, Ings are all injured and expected to miss out.
Predicted Liverpool Starting Lineup (4-3-3): Karius; Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Lovren, Moreno; Milner, Lucas, Grujic; Woodburn, Origi, Mane
Leeds United Team News & Preview
Leeds have been in very good form under Garry Monk and will fancy their chances of an upset this week.
The away side are coming into this game on the back of three consecutive away wins. Their only defeat in their last seven matches came against Newcastle. Leeds will be looking to make the most of Liverpool’s fatigue and the current injury crisis.
Leeds have a very poor head-to-head record against the Reds and will be looking to get one over them this week. This is their first meeting since 2009 and it should be a fantastic contest.
Garry Monk has a poor record against Liverpool as well and has lost all five of his matches against them in the past. He will be determined to knock the Premier League giants out of the competition when the two sides meet tomorrow.
Liam Bridcutt and Pablo Hernandez are the only injury worries for the away side.
Predicted Leeds United Starting Lineup (4-2-3-1): Green; Ayling, Bartley, Jansson, Taylor; Phillips, O’Kane; Sacko, Roofe, Dallas; Wood
