The 14th Matchday Could See a Liverpool vs Leeds United Clash for the Ages
Liverpool Will Fight for First Place, a Position That Has Eluded Them since 2019-20
Liverpool is an elite team with a habit of destroying the competition in the biggest competitions. And it also has a first-class squad that has kept the team performing well for several seasons now.
However, they are having a rather bland season full of draws that don’t do much for them.
Of course, there is the exception of their fourth matchday this season, where they put on a spectacular performance, trampling their opponents in a crushing nine-goal defeat. Here, Luis Fernando Diaz, Harvey Elliott, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Roberto Firmino, Virgil van Djik, Favio Carvalho, and an own goal from Chris Mepham all contributed to the goal fest.
But this was their only notable game to date, and it is worth noting that it was against Bournemouth, which should come as no surprise.
As such, Liverpool are giving us a lot to talk about, for although they still have many games to go, they have only accumulated 9 out of 21 possible points by the time of their match against Everton. This leaves them with about half the score of their top-ranking opponents.
Now, they find themselves backed into a corner where they must take advantage of opportunities like this upcoming Liverpool vs Leeds United game, as it could be an easy stop to take three points and close the gap on their rivals.
The Peacocks Have Fought Hard to Get This Far, but Can They Cope with Liverpool?
On July 17, 2020, Leeds United finally achieved a long-awaited promotion to the top flight. That year they put in a massive performance throughout the entire season and finished in #9 before securing a promotion.
Their next season was last season, and it almost cost them dearly after they finished one step away from relegation.
This season has not been any easier for them, either, and by the sixth game, their record was split between two wins, two draws, and two losses.
And while they have mostly managed to match their opponents’ performances so far, they must give more if they want to achieve more than merely avoiding relegation. Above all, strengthening the lines of defense will be necessary since conceding fewer goals would have had the most significant impact on their outcomes to date.
In reality, there isn’t much of a gap to separate Liverpool vs Leeds United, and the Whites will be looking to close that gap against a team that can’t seem to get going.
