Liverpool v Leeds Utd- Backing shock away win is our tip ahead of EFL Cup Clash

Published

on

Liverpool take on Leeds Utd at Anfield tonight in the quarter final of the EFL Cup, with the side still reeling from the news that star midfielder Phillipe Coutinho will be out until the new year with ligament damage.

The Brazilian playmaker has certainly been the Red star performer over recent months, and his absence is a huge blow to Liverpool’s title charge, as they face Garry Monk’s Leeds Utd tonight in what looks to be a tricky tie for the Premier League club.

The Reds have dispatched all before them this season, especially at home, but the injury to their star midfielder may have dampened spirits at Anfield, and may even have left the door ajar for a shock away win tonight.

Manager Jurgen Klopp is sure to ring the changes to his side, with Divock Origi all set for a starting role, with questions again asked over Daniel Sturridge, who is out with a calf strain.

Adam Lallana is close to full fitness following a groin strain, according to the Official Liverpool website.

Garry Monk is sure to pick a strong starting eleven, considering a Wembley date is within reachable distance.

That said, the price on the Liverpool home is a very short 2/7, and only looks worthy for the big hitters. Instead, I see more value in backing the Leeds away win at a massive price of 12/1.

The Lilywhites are now up to fifth in the Championship, and although there is still a huge gulf in class between the Premier League and England’s second tier, there’s little doubting that Monk is doing good things at the Yorkshire club and they shouldn’t be underestimated, especially at that price of 12/1.

Four wins out of their last five games and the side suddenly finding their form bodes well for the away side, and Leeds should fill the away way with vociferous support.

It should be a pulsating tie, as it always is when Leeds are in town, but with the side playing some good football at the moment, the Lilywhites should not be underestimated.

Back them to cause a shock.
