Liverpool FC Vs Leeds United Team news
Diogo Jota’s injury is not as serious as was initially feared but the Portuguese star will still miss this game along with Rhys Williams.
Jota has become a crucial player for the Reds since he joined from Wolves and will be missed tomorrow. However, Jurgen Klopp still has an embarrassment of riches to pick from as the Liverpool squad is stocked with world-class talent from back to front.
Leeds are missing several senior players including senior squad members, Patrick Bamford, Kalvin Phillips and Liam Cooper. Junior Firpo and Stuart Dallas might also miss out after picking up knocks in their last game. An already difficult job just got even harder for Marcelo Bielsa.
