Liverpool v Leeds team news

Liverpool: New signing Konstantinos Tsimikas will miss the game after testing positive for coronavirus during the international break.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Xherdan Shaqiri are both out injured, while Jordan Henderson is a doubt with a knee problem. James Milner is in line to play against his former club.

Leeds: Kalvin Phillips will return from England duty to anchor the Leeds midfield, while Luke Ayling and Liam Cooper should start in the centre of defence.

New signings Rodrigo and Robin Koch are likely to start on the bench as Bielsa sticks to the players he trusted with earning Leeds promotion last term.

Our prediction: Liverpool v Leeds

Leeds will come into this clash hoping to cause an upset on their return to the Premier League, but in reality this is Liverpool’s game to lose.

The Reds may not have strengthened much this summer but that attacking line of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane is a class above what Leeds faced in the Championship.

Bielsa will want his men to muck in behind the ball before hitting Liverpool on the break, which means this could be a long afternoon for the visitors.

Our prediction: Liverpool 2-0 Leeds
