Liverpool vs Leeds – League Cup – Preview

Posted on by Sreya

Liverpool - Jordan Henderson

Liverpool vs Leeds – Liverpool host Leeds at the Anfield on 29th November, Tuesday in the quarter-finals of the League Cup. Liverpool are struggling with injuries to a number of key players, but Jurgen Klopp’s side are expected to win comfortably courtesy their superb form.

Liverpool defeated Tottenham Hotspur 2-1 in the previous round while Leeds relied on a penalty win after a 1-1 draw at home against Norwich City to reach the last eight of the League Cup.

Team News

Philippe Coutinho suffered a massive ankle injury in the weekend which rules him out alongside Daniel Sturridge (calf) and Danny Ings. Roberto Firmino, carrying a minor knock, is unlikely to be risked as well. Sheyi Ojyo and Joseph Gomez are yet to regain match fitness while Adam Lallana will be facing a late fitness test.

Leeds will be without the injured Liam Bridcutt and Pablo Hernandez but Pontus Jansson returns from suspension.

Liverpool Possible Starting Lineup: Simon Mignolet, Trent-Alexander Arnold, Joel Matip, Lucas Leiva, Alberto Moreno, Marko Grujic, Jordan Henderson, Kevin Stewart, Sadio Mane, Divock Origi, Ben Woodburn.

Leeds Possible Starting Lineup: Robert Green, Luke Ayling, Kyle Bartley, Pontus Jansson, Charlie Taylor, Kalvin Philipps, Eunan O’Kane, Hadi Sacko, Kemar Roofe, Stuart Dallas, Chris Wood.

“It’s a historic fixture in English football and we have to respect that. We’re under no illusions. It’s a very difficult game for us. It’s a great challenge, that’s how we have to look at it. Our young players have a bit of freedom to go there. We’re under no pressure. The odds are against us, but we have good belief in ourselves.”

– Garry Monk, Leeds.
