Leeds United and Liverpool are set to clash on Sunday afternoon at Elland Road as one of the marquee matchups of Matchweek 4 in the 2021/22 EPL season. BettingPlanet.com’s football expert presents his best bets and match analysis for what shapes as a tasty clash between two of the best-supported clubs in the Premier League.

Leeds United v Liverpool match analysis

If there is one certainty in life, it is that Leeds manager Marcelo Bielsa will make Sunday afternoon’s clash an entertaining affair. ‘Bielsa Ball’ is one of the most spoken-about tactics in the league, and with the likes of Patrick Bamford and now Daniel James ready to pounce at any given opportunity, the Peacocks are sure to give this star-studded Liverpool defence a few issues. The major omission for Leeds is Raphinha, who has been caught up in the ongoing fracas between EPL clubs and the Brazilian FA over player availability during the recent international break.

With two draws and a 5-1 loss to Manchester United to begin their season, Leeds will need to find their feet in the new campaign quickly if they wish to avoid sliding into a potential relegation battle. Can they give their home fans something to cheer about when the Reds come to visit this weekend?

With the loss of Fabinho, Allison and Roberto Firmino, Liverpool’s depth following the first international break is sure to be tested. But unlike Leeds, they have star quality wherever you look on their reserves bench. With Diogo Jota, Naby Kieta and Thiago Alcantara in the mix to start, it is unlikely they will lose too much in terms of quality in midfield and attack. The big question is whether young keeper Caoimhin Kelleher can hold his own replacing the formidable Allison in goal.

With seven points from a possible nine to begin the new season, Liverpool will be confident of claiming all three points at Elland Road. Look for the Reds to assert their dominance early and grab the lead within the first 20 minutes.

Leeds United v Liverpool EPL predictions & best bets

Match handicap: Liverpool (-1.0)

Despite being without Brazilian trio Allison, Fabinho and Roberto Firmino for their trip to Elland Road, this Liverpool line-up should be simply too good for this Leeds side. Jurgen Klopp is one of the best managers in the EPL and will make sure that replacements such as Thiago Alcantara and Caoimhin Kelleher will be raring to go. The attacking trio of Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Diogo Jota should be too hard to contain for a Leeds side struggling to keep clean sheets to begin the 2021/22 EPL season.

Liverpool (-1.0)

Anytime goalscorer: Diogo Jota

Diogo Jota has quickly become one of the most reliable goalscorers in the Premier League, and he has only enhanced that reputation with two goals in his first three matches to begin the 2021/22 EPL season. He scored the opening goal in the wins against both Norwich and Burnley, but we are taking the safer option and backing him to score at anytime in this match. With Roberto Firmino out, Jota looks a near-certainty to start in the no.9 role, and with the likes of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah offering A-grade support from either side of the pitch, we expect him to find the back of the net against a Leeds side known to concede a few goals.
