Liverpool has won 15 of the last 16 meetings between Liverpool and Leeds. Six victories, four draws, and most importantly, no defeats have been recorded.

Leeds United hasn’t won a game this season after winning their last four games in the 2020-21 campaign (D2 L1). Since 1958-59, when Bill Lambton was manager, they haven’t lost their first four games of a top-flight season.
This is a dream come true for the Leeds fans at Elland Road, as their team continues its winning streak. Since 2001, the team has gone seven home games without a loss.
If Mohamed Salah scores a goal against Leads, he will become the fifth player in Premier League history to reach 100 goals within five years. He trails Alan Shearer by three matches and Thierry Henry with four fewer games played than them both at 59 appearances for Liverpool since December 26th, 2016. If you add his current streak of two consecutive seasons scoring 24+ Goals Per Season (with 44), then Mo firmly sits among elite companies alongside some other greats we all know here: Harry Kaung Nike Agüero!

Trent Alexander-Arnold is a breath of fresh air for Liverpool. The English fullback has been incredible this season, creating more chances than any other player in the Premier League (15) and even scoring one goal! In addition to being an excellent attacker with his crosses from open play which are resulting in many goals scored by teammates thanks to him (6).
