Leeds vs Liverpool LIVE! Premier League

Liverpool will be looking to keep pace with the early Premier League leaders as they travel to Elland Road to take on Leeds this afternoon.

The Reds know that victory will see them go level on points with Chelsea and Manchester United, after both made it three wins from their opening four games on Saturday.

Jurgen Klopp’s side are also unbeaten but failed to break down a Chelsea side that played the entire second half with ten men in their clash just before the international break.

They have been boosted by the availability of Brazilian pair Alisson Becker and Fabinho after the country’s federation dropped their request to Fifa to issue a five-day ban for players not joining up with the squad because of potential quarantine restrictions upon their return.

Leeds, meanwhile, are yet to pick up their first victory of the season and start the day just one place and one point outside the relegation zone.
