Liverpool Preview – Can Liverpool re-focus?

Although Liverpool won last season’s Premier League at a canter and by an impressive 18-point margin, the run-in towards the end of their campaign left a little to be desired as Liverpool won just six of their final 11 matches overall.

This proved to be immaterial as The Reds had already built up an impressive 22-point cushion over their main rivals, Manchester City, by the end of February, but nevertheless, defeats to Watford 3-0, Manchester City 4-0 and Arsenal 2-1 may well serve as a possible warning for Jurgen Klopp’s side prior to the start of this new season.

That said, let’s not forget that Liverpool remained unbeaten at Anfield throughout the whole of last season, winning 18 of their 19 matches, while 13 of Liverpool’s 19 home matches also produced three goals or more with the forward trio of Salah, Mane and Firmino scoring a total of 46 goals between them (that’s 54% of the team’s total goals for last season).

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

Leeds United Preview – Can Leeds give a good account of themselves?

Onto Leeds United and after a 16-year hiatus from the Premier League (which includes a stint down in League One), the famous Yorkshire club are back in the big time under their influential coach, Marcelo Bielsa, who steered Leeds back to the top flight after many before him had failed.

It’ll be interesting to see how Leeds’s high-pressing style under Bielsa performs in the Premier League after they swept teams away in the Championship in last season’s triumphant promotion season, and it’s likely to be as much about defence as attack for the visitors as they seek to consolidate their position back in the Premier League.

Similar to Liverpool, Leeds also experienced a few minor blips along the way to securing the Championship title as they suffered unexpected defeats at QPR, Nottingham Forest and Cardiff City on the road in the run-in to their campaign and while they possess a world-class goalkeeper in Casilla between the sticks, Leeds’s defence is likely to come under close scrutiny this term.
