Sunday’s match, which takes place at Elland Road, kicks off at 4.30pm and is live on Sky Sports.
Leeds v Liverpool match odds
After winning their last four games of the 2020-21 campaign, Leeds are without a win so far this season (D2 L1). They have not failed to win any of their first four games to a top-flight campaign since 1958-59.
Having been thumped 5-1 at Manchester United on opening day, Leeds were held at home by Everton (2-2) and on the road at Burnley (1-1).
However, Bielsa’s side are unbeaten in their last seven Premier League games at home (W3 D4), their longest run without a loss at Elland Road in the top flight since a run of 15 unbeaten in 2001. They are 21/20 to win or draw the game on the Double Chance market in the Leeds v Liverpool betting tips.
Liverpool are on a good run. Only Brentford (15 games) are on a longer unbeaten streak in England’s top four divisions than Jurgen Klopp’s side, who are unbeaten in 13 with only three draws in that time.
They defeated Norwich 3-0 at Carrow Road on the opening weekend and followed it up with a 2-0 win over Burnley at Anfield before being held to a 1-1 draw at home by Chelsea.
They sit fifth, two points behind leaders Tottenham, and are 7/10 to beat Bielsa’s side in the Leeds v Liverpool betting tips.
Two of the last three meetings at Elland Road ended in stalemate and the draw is on offer at 29/10.
Ready to hit the road again.

Leeds v Liverpool head-to-head
After winning both league meetings against Liverpool in 2000-01, Leeds are winless in their last eight against the Reds in the Premier League (D3 L5).
Klopp’s side have lost just one of their last nine meetings at Elland Road, going down 4-3 in November 2000.
Last season, Liverpool defeated Leeds 4-3 at Anfield, but Leeds held them to a 1-1 draw at home in the reverse fixture. It is 7/2 that the game ends in a score draw this time.
Liverpool have only failed to score in one of their last 22 meetings with Leeds in all competitions, finding the net in each of their last 15 against the Whites since a goalless draw at Elland Road in April 1999. It is 2/1 that Liverpool win but concede at least once.
Five of the last seven meetings saw both sides net and it is 8/15 for both teams to score in the Leeds v Liverpool betting tips.
Leeds v Liverpool team news
Leeds could be without Raphinha if FIFA’s five-day rule is imposed after the Brazilian winger failed to report for international duty.
Deadline-day signing Daniel James is in line for his debut, while Stuart Dallas is in contention after he withdrew from the Northern Ireland squad in midweek for personal reasons. Junior Firpo and Mateusz Klich have both recovered from coronavirus and are in the squad.
Liverpool’s Brazilians Alisson Becker and midfielder Fabinho could likewise miss out, while Roberto Firmino (hamstring) and Takumi Minamino are sidelined.
Leeds v Liverpool key battles
Leeds will hope to nullify the threat posed by Mohamed Salah. The Liverpool marksman has scored 99 goals in 161 Premier League appearances, and a goal here would see him become the fifth fastest player to reach 100 in the competition. He is 19/20 to score at any time and 16/5 to score the first goal.
Likewise, Liverpool will hope to keep England striker Patrick Bamford in check. He has been involved in five goals in his last seven Premier League appearances (four goals, one assist) and is 9/4 to score at any time or 13/2 to score the first goal.
