After their midweek Champions League exit, securing a place in next season’s competition appeared to be the sole aim left for Liverpool this season - but the Reds’ Super League ambitions have stunned the worlds of both football and politics.
While Liverpool still have a job to do on the pitch this evening, Jurgen Klopp will face some tough questions regarding his club’s decision to form a breakaway competition.
Leeds, meanwhile, are flying high after a superb win at Manchester City last week despite playing half of the game with only ten men, and will be confident of another upset.
Date, kick-off time and venue
Leeds vs Liverpool is scheduled for an 8pm kick-off tonight on Monday, April 19, 2021.
The game will be played behind closed doors at Elland Road in line with current coronavirus restrictions.
How to watch Leeds vs Liverpool
TV channel: The match will be televised on Sky Sports.
Live stream: Sky Sports subscribers will be able to watch the match online via the website or Sky Go app.
Jurgen Klopp could hand starts to both Diogo Jota and Thiago Alcantara after the pair came off the bench in the midweek draw with Real Madrid. Curtis Jones and Divock Origi are still doubts.
Leeds will be without Liam Cooper through suspension after his red card against Man City, while Raphinna is a doubt with a knock picked up in that game.
Prediction: Leeds 1-2 Liverpool
As brilliant as Leeds’ win over Man City was, such performances have appeared a little sporadically for them. Liverpool know they simply must win.
