Liverpool left Elland Road last season with a sense of regret and they return with that feeling again on Sunday.

In April, Diego Llorente headed in an 87th-minute equaliser for Leeds to stop Jurgen Klopp and his men moving into the top four.

A late-season surge meant Liverpool finished in a Champions League spot, and they need to show that spirit again this weekend having blown a chance to beat Chelsea in their last fixture, despite playing all of the second half against 10 men. Although the Blues defended brilliantly, the Reds lacked the craft to truly open them up.

Leeds were also lacking a cutting edge despite plenty of the ball in their last fixture. However, they did have the satisfaction of getting an equaliser with Patrick Bamford, who scored 17 goals last season, getting his first of the campaign in the 1-1 draw at Burnley.

Leeds haven’t really got going this season, while Liverpool had before Chelsea put the brakes on their progress.
