    Leeds Utd v Liverpool
    Monday 19th [email protected]:00 | Elland Road


    Leeds will be without the services of Brazilian wizard Raphinha when Liverpool travel to Elland Road on Monday evening. The former Rennes winger is expected to be sidelined for up til a month following being chopped down in mid flight by Fernandinho at the weekend. He joins record signing Rodrigo on the treatment table with a similar thigh injury.

    Leeds skipper Liam Cooper serves the first of a three game ban after getting sent off at the weekend. Bielsa has the luxury of picking two from Struijk, Llorente and Koch. Ayling will take the Captains armband.

    Jack Harrison will return to the starting line up. The 24yo was unable to play against his parent club at the weekend. Costa is expected to fill in on the right wing as Raphinha's replacement.

    Long term absentee Adam Forshaw recently returned to action playing in a friendly against York City. He will be put through his paces with the U23's before being unleashed into the first team.

    Following their exit from Europe at the hands of Real Madrid; Jurgen Klopp's men will want to make a mission statement. The current Champions are in sixth place, eleven points behind second place Manchester United, with seven games left. They will have to fight tooth and nail if they want Champions League football next season! Currently West Ham occupy 4th place, and the final Champions league spot.

    The Lads have just got to go out there and enjoy it.
    Pressure is all on Liverpool. out of the champions League. need a top 4 finish to save there season.
    Rapha still in with a shout of playing Monday but Rodrigo is out.
    I'm just going to sit and enjoy this one with a few cans. win/lose/draw we have had a fantastic first season back.
    Then its onto the big one after this.

    Would also love to beat Spurs mate. Turns out an old golfing chum who I never discussed footie with is full of repartee and wit on Watsup every time we concede a corner let alone lose and is evidently a die hard yid. Kept a lid on it all season but, boy, if we beat them it will become apparent that loving the only team to come third in a two horse race is not so clever after all :emoticon-0148-yes:<somersault>

    This is what I thought about the City game and then the ref/VAR happened and I was shouting at the tv like it was a game to keep us up!

    and a ref that isn't biased and wants to squeeze 20 mins out of 3 mins overtime if we are winning
