Leeds United face Liverpool on Monday night in the Premier League, so we simulated the game to try to predict the outcome
Leeds manager Javi Gracia will not dwell on his team’s Premier League victory over Liverpool earlier this season. The Whites ended their eight-game winless streak in October with a 2-1 victory over Jurgen Klopp’s side at Anfield, with Crysencio Summerville scoring in the 89th minute.
Leeds are still the only team on Merseyside to have taken three league points away from the Reds this season. That shocking result ended Liverpool’s remarkable run of 81 consecutive home games without defeat in front of their fans. However, it is fair to say that the circumstances are entirely different.
Jurgen Klopp’s team has only been able to hit top gear in spurts this season, but they had some irresistible moments in last week’s 2-2 draw with Premier League leaders Arsenal.
They will relish the opportunity to face a Leeds side that conceded five goals against Crystal Palace in their last game.
The simulation predicted the score of Leeds United vs. Liverpool.
We used FIFA 23 to complete this simulation and updated the respective squads with the most recent injuries and suspensions.
The following Leeds players are expected to start: Meslier; Kristensen, Koch, Struijk, Firpo, McKennie, Forshaw, Harrison, Rodrigo, Gnonto, Bamford.
Liverpool are expected to use a 4-3-3 formation, with the following lineup: Allison, Alexander-Arnold, Konate, van Dijk, Robertson, Henderson, Fabinho, Thiago, Salah, Gakpo, and Nunez.
FIFA 23 was asked to predict the outcome.
Patrick Bamford opened the scoring after slipping between Van Dijk and Konate and firing from close range.
After falling behind, Liverpool took control of the game and equalized when substitute Luis Diaz teed up Darwin Nunez in the box after a mazy run down the left.
Illan Meslier made several saves to keep Leeds in the game, but Liverpool won in the 91st minute.
Diogo Jota latched onto Trent Alexander-long Arnold’s ball on the counterattack, and the striker fired down the middle to equalize.
Leeds United 1-2 Liverpool is the predicted score in FIFA 23.
In the end, Klopp’s Liverpool team proved too strong for a relegation-threatened Leeds side.
