Liverpool vs Leeds
Battle of the champions will be going down at Anfield and there might be a lot to expect at this game. Leeds not only got promoted to the EPL after 16 years away from topflight football but also won the championship. Sharing many things in common, including winning first English trophy in years, rivalry with Manchester United, Liverpool will be looking to show Leeds United how the arch-rival Manchester United were schooled at Anfield last season and how they became EPL champions.
Leeds United has spent about 68 million Euros, strengthening the back line and other positions as Marcelo Bielsa’s men, known for their defensive prowess, will be taking no chances against top flight English clubs this season.
Although they cruised through the league last season, Liverpool will be faced with a huge test as it seems like their tactics were found out towards the end of last season. Liverpool have had a rather quiet transfer window and manager, Jurgen Klopp has hinged this on the effect of the pandemic. Liverpool have spent only 15 million Euros in the market and this has sent many fans into panic mode.
At Anfield, Leeds will show why they have been crowned champions and Liverpool will prove why they are called “mentality monsters”. A tough match it will seem, but the reds should get all 3 points as Liverpool has not lost a match at Anfield since facing Crystal Palace in April 2017.
COMMENT YOUR PREDICTIONS OF WHICH TEAM WILL WIN THE TROPHY THIS SEASON TO WIN PRIZES AT THE END OF THE SEASON. GOODLUCK!
