Well here we are (again) and what odds would a man have got especially after Cooper was given a straight red for winning a tackle and leeds still had to play an entire second half against City last Saturday.
NOT ME I can honestly say that.
Next up Super Leeds play current PL Champions Liverpool at Elland Road on 19th April with KO being 8pm (on sky sports)
Leeds are unbeaten since early March (2 nil loss to West Ham) and despite having played Chelsea, Fulham, Sheff Utd & Man City we have secured 10 points out of a possible 12. Hoodoo of London was laid to rest, winning a local derby was secured and beating the champions elect with 10 men its like its all a dream and one that i dont want to wake up from but the bin-dippers whom themselves since that 1st weekend in March are also unbeaten in the PL winning there last 3 games. So yet another big ask of our players to try and get a point out of this one never mind all 3.
This will be the 119th game between these two Clubs and unfortunately we all know how these stats will look
Leeds won 28
Liverpool won 60
In the Premier League era
Played 25 times
Leeds won 6
Scoring 26 goals
Conceding 52 goals
Clean Sheets 4
Liverpool won 15
Scoring 52 goals
Conceding 26 goals
Clean Sheets 10
There have been 4 draws
Historically we have always seen goals in this fixture and looking back on the record books only one of these 25 premier league games has produced a 0-0 scoreline and that was back on the 12th April 1999 when 39,372 people were inside ER, and if im honest im not expecting a nil nil next Monday either.
In the Premier League
The last time Liverpool beat Leeds was the 4-3 game last September
Last time Liverpool beat Leeds in ER was October 2002
The last time Leeds beat Liverpool was a 2-1 victory in April 2001 (Ferdinand and Lee Bowyer)
Last time Leeds beat Liverpool in ER was that famous day in November 2000 the 4-3 win the day when Viduka scored all four
So what can we expect from next Monday nights game??? The season so far Leeds are 10th in the Table Liverpool are 6th, Leeds have won 14 Liverpool won 15, Leeds have drawn 3 Liverpool 7, Leeds have lost 14 Liverpool just 9. Leeds average goals scored per match stands at 1.58 compared to Liverpools 1.71. Leeds average goals conceded per match is also 1.58 to liverpool's 1.19. Both teams have kept 9 clean sheets and on average leeds create 1.55 chances per match where as Liverpool create 2. Leeds biggest win so far this season is 5-0 (WBA) Liverpool's biggest win was the 7 nil drubbing of Palace. and leeds worst defeat was that 6-2 drubbing versus the the filth but liverpool suffered a bigger defeat against vilescum when they lost 7-2

Team News too early at this stage liverpool must play Real Madrid on Wednesday night so that could determine a few things. Personally i cant see liverpool winning the CL this season think both City & Chelsea would beat them never mind any of the other teams from Europe so the reds need to focus on PL as the source of qualification for next year. Liverpool have 7 games in the PL left apart from Leeds & ManU the other 5 are definitely winnable (barcodes, saints, WBA, Burnley & Palace) but then again everyone would have thought liverpool would have beaten Fulham too and we all saw what happened that day. 15 points out of 21 should see Liverpool in the top 4 i cant see Chelsea winning 5 from there last 7 (4xlondon derbies, city, vila & leicester), West Ham have a great chance but will nerves get to them they have very winnable games for a team looking to be top 4 (newcastle, Burnley, BHA, Saints, WBA) so only thing to stop them i think will be themselves and While Leicester City next 4 games are also winnable there final 3 are real cup finals (manu, chelsea & spurs).
For us we should be taking things one step at a time, one game at a time. The players that played ever so well against City on Saturday (if available) should be handed the Jersey (except for Costa) not that he let us down just cause Harrison would have been playing only for the "loan player" rule but everyone else as a reward for all their heroic efforts against effectively 12 men (mariner you are the definition of a bellend) should hold their place .
I like to think we will try to take them on knowing that our CB's will contain their undoubted attacking strengths and TAA will fit into Harrison's pocket.
