Liverpool boss Klopp discusses Leeds’ struggles ahead of tomorrow’s clash at Anfield

Jurgen Klopp has discussed Leeds’ struggles this season as Liverpool prepare to welcome Marcelo Bielsa’s side to Anfield on Wednesday evening.

Liverpool host Leeds in the Premier League tomorrow, as the Reds look to close the gap on Manchester City to just three points at the top of the division.


Leeds arrive on Merseyside having failed to win in their past four league fixtures, with the Whites currently just five points above the Premier League’s relegation places.

Marcelo Bielsa has been without a number of leading players so far this season with Patrick Bamford, Liam Cooper and Kalvin Phillips among those who remain sidelined, with Klopp sympathising with his opposite number as the two teams prepare to meet at Anfield.

“They are missing a few decisive players for them. Patrick Bamford, [Liam] Cooper and [Kalvin] Phillips is pretty much their spine, and I know how much it can hurt you if you lose these players. I expect exactly the same attitude and they play all in,” Klopp told his pre-match press conference.

“They had a tough run in late December when they had a few knocks but that is over and since then the results have been much tougher.

“The Aston Villa result [3-3] was spectacular. Villa thought they were through and they weren’t because Leeds came back. Manchester United went up two and then you come out, and if you went for a drink at half time, you probably missed both of Leeds’ goal.

“Then Utd turned it around again but it’s a really tricky one. I hope we, as a unit, with our supporters will be really difficult to beat and that is what we have to do.”
