Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson has returned to full training but he may not be 100% fit to start. Trent Alexander-Arnold is also a doubt as he missed pre-season training. New left-back; Konstantinos Tsimikas is struggling with illness but wasn't expected to feature here anyway. Marcelo Bielsa will be heading into this clash a happy mans as Leeds have a fully fit squad ahead of this tie.
Liverpool can extend their unbeaten home run to 60 matches if they avoid a defeat and Leeds United will hope to announce their return to the Premier League after a 16-years absence. This will be a close call and Liverpool should edge it.
