A series of steadfast displays from the Liverpool defensive players has seen their ‘goals against’ tally amounting to 2 from their last 6 outings overall. In that time, the number of goals that they have scored themselves is 13. That trend isn’t assured to be carried forward into this next game, though.
Their previous form shows that Liverpool:

Team News: Leeds United
The Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa doesn’t have any fitness concerns to speak of coming into this match with a completely injury-free squad to choose from.
Team News: Liverpool
In an otherwise healthy group of players, there is only the lone fitness issue for the Liverpool gaffer Jürgen Klopp to contend with. Takumi Minamino (Thigh Problems) won’t be playing here.
We envisage that Leeds United certainly have the ability to breach the defence of this Liverpool lineup, although one goal may not quite be enough to give them the result that they want.
We can see a close game with a 1-2 winning score for Liverpool at the end of the 90 minutes. Should be a good one.
