EPL Match Preview: Liverpool vs Leeds United
The Reds are in flying form as they are unbeaten in the last 8 matches. However, the match against Norwich City was a real threat for Liverpool as they were trailing 1-0 to Norwich after Milot Rashica’s strike took a significant deflection off Joel Matip into the back of the net. But it didn’t take long for Liverpool to strike back as Mane’s acrobatic goal gave Liverpool confidence. Goals from Salah and Diaz sealed the victory for Liverpool FC.
Previously, The Reds took down Inter Milan in their UCL clash at San Siro. Robert Firmino and Mohamed Salah were the heroes of the match as their goals helped Liverpool win 0-2.
On the other hand, Leeds grabbed Man Utd by their collar as they equalised twice. A game that was said to be an easy win for the Red Devils, turned out to be a not-so-easy win. However, the opening 2 goals from Harry Maguire and Bruno Fernandes gave United the early lead. It was later countered by Rodrigo and Raphinha in a gap of 2 minutes. However, two inspired changes from Ralf Rangnick turned the tide in Man Utd’s favor, as Fred restored the Red Devils’ lead before Anthony Elanga ensured all the 3 points.
So now Leeds United have some confidence in them even though they lost
