Liverpool will host Leeds United at Anfield on Wednesday in what will be an important clash for the Reds.

Looking to capitalise on title rivals Manchester City’s slip up against Spurs, the Reds will have the chance to close the gap on the ‘Cityzens’ to just three points.

Let’s take a look at the last five meetings in the Premier League between Liverpool and Leeds.

Leeds 0 – 3 Liverpool: September 2021

The last meeting between the two sides ended in a solid three-nil win for the Reds with goals from Salah, Mane and Fabinho.

Mohamed Salah reached a milestone netting his 100th English top flight goal. The Egyptian finished off Trent Alexander Arnold’s low cross. Fabinho extended the lead following a corner after the break.

Sadio Mane had a long day in front of goal struggling to convert an array of chances. His goal finally came in injury time and rounded off a convincing win.

A great team performance from the Reds was marred by youngster, Harvey Elliott suffering a dislocated ankle after a challenge from Pascal Strujik.

Leeds 1 – 1 Liverpool: April 2021

Just 24 hours prior to this game, the plans for the formation of the European Super League were announced.

It created a weird atmosphere surrounding the game with protests taking place both prior and during the match.

Liverpool took the lead in the 31st minute through Sadio Mane, and although fans were happy, celebrations were limited.

Spanish Centre back, Diego Llorente, equalised late in the 87th minute as the points were shared.

Liverpool 4 – 3 Leeds: September 2020

The 2020/21 Premier League season kicked off in style with a seven-goal thriller at Anfield.

It was the Premier League Champions against the Championship Champions in what was an exciting opener to the season.

Mohamed Salah was the star man this game starting his league campaign with an impressive hat-trick, with Virgil Van Dijk also getting himself onto the scoresheet.

Despite coming away with a loss, Leeds’ first appearance in the Premier League since 2004 was something to be proud of.

Goals came courtesy of Jack Harrison, Patrick Bamford and Mateusz Klich to ensure Leeds put up a fight at the home of the then Premier League champions.

Leeds 2 – 2 Liverpool: February 2004

In their final season in the top flight before a 16-year absence, Leeds held Liverpool to a 2-2 draw.

Former Leeds man, Harry Kewell, opened the scoring against his former club with a curling shot.

It was a level game with both sides creating an abundance of chances but in the end there was nothing to separate the two.

Other goals from the game came from Baros, Viduka and Bakke.

Liverpool 3 – 1 Leeds: October 2003

Earlier on in the 2003/04 season, Liverpool hosted Leeds at Anfield and secured a solid three points.

The Reds opened the scoring through Michael Owen in the 35th minute before Leeds responded well equalising just on the stroke of half time via Alan Smith.

The quick response wasn’t enough for Leeds as the second half was all about the Reds. Goals from Danny Murphy and Florent Sigma-Pongolle led to a convincing 3-1 victory for the home side.
