Crunch clash

Liverpool take on Leeds United knowing that there’s no room for slip ups.

The Reds are back in the mix for a top four finish but need those above of them in the table to drop some points between now and the end of the season.

The reverse fixture at Anfield saw a seven goal thriller with Liverpool coming out on top in the 4-3 tie.

Jürgen Klopp will be keen to avoid a similar goal glut this time around with the Reds vulnerable at the back and misfiring up top.

Marcelo Bielsa on Liverpool

Liverpool play an intense brand of football, one similar to the brand being played at Leeds United.

The Yorkshire side’s head coach inevitably has taken a liking to the Reds’ style of play, as many Kopites have taken to watching Leeds this term.

Speaking to the club’s official site, Marcelo Bielsa discussed what he admired about Liverpool:

“I like to see Liverpool play, they always play in the same manner, for me that’s big praise to give to a team.

“There’s no player in their team who is not prepared to receive the ball and manage the ball in whatever part of the pitch they receive it. 

“They have a big offensive power, their full-backs are wingers, and their wingers are centre-forwards throughout moments of the game.

“I think they’re a team who constantly thinks when producing football. They don’t speculate, they attack always and they spend a lot of time attacking and not so much defending.”

What RTK has to say

We are in for an entertaining game on Monday night.

Liverpool and Leeds United are two of the most exciting sides in the division on their day.

The two team’s clash at the start of the season didn’t disappoint, we’ll be hoping for more of the same this time around.
