Having won seven and lost none of the previous nine meetings between the sides, they are 13/20 (1.65) favourites with bet365 to go above Chelsea and West Ham into the Champions League places by coming out on top once again.
However, Marcelo Bielsa’s men are also enjoying a three-match winning streak and can be backed at 7/2 (4.50) to follow last week’s shock win over Manchester City by pulling off another upset.

Leeds United vs Liverpool Preview
Although it would most likely be only until Chelsea played their game in hand on Tuesday, moving back into the top-four would be a massive boost for Jurgen Klopp’s men considering they looked cut adrift a few weeks ago.
Nevertheless, victory will not come easily against a home side that has taken 10 points from the last available 12 – taking four of those against Manchester City and Chelsea.
Indeed, Liverpool do not seem particularly worthy of their status as such heavy favourites given their understrength line-up and the rather unconvincing nature of recent wins against Wolves and Aston Villa.
