Leeds United and Liverpool remain keen on seeking their fourth consecutive win in the Premier League this week. The match schedules for Monday at Elland Road with kickoff at 10 pm.
The White registered a historic 2-1 win over Manchester City in their last outing, whereas Liverpool heads into the clash after clashing out of the Champions League.
The week begins on a highly controversial note with the announcement of the Europa Super League. The controversial league’s names, the ‘Big Six’ English sides, including Liverpool, Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City, and Tottenham, join other nine top teams in midweek tournaments.
Even though there is resistance from the UEFA, the fate of English football hangs in the balance. The fate of the ‘Big Six’ remains uncertain in the Premier League. It is a matter that spurs different reactions and leaves a large impact on the grassroots level.
However, Jurgen Klopp remains fixated on a top-six finish when they take on Marco Bielsa. The reverse fixture was the first match of the season that saw a dramatic 3-2 win for Liverpool after a spirited fight.
It is more of a fall from grace for Liverpool in Europe’s premier competition after bowing out to Real Madrid. The Reds head to Elland Road after winning five of their last six league games on the road.
