Preview Leeds United Premier League, Sep 12, 2021
Preview Leeds United continue in search of their first win of the season. The Peacocks picked up a 1-1 draw on the third day of the Premier League at Turf Moor when they took on Burnley. Burnley's Chris Wood (61') struck a minute after the hour-mark before Patrick Bamford (86') secured the leveler four minutes to the end of normal time. The draw leaves Leeds with two points and a goal difference of -4 picked up after 0W, 2D, & 1L. Leeds United completed the deadline-day transfer signing of Daniel James for the sum of £25 million, and the Welsh winger could make his debut on Sunday. It's always nice to be recognized by one of the top managers round the world, James said after putting pen to paper for his new club. Leeds sit in 15th place and hope James’ contribution alongside Patrick Bamford will bring in the desired results as the club looks to climb higher on the league table. Marcelo Bielsa adopted the 5—4—1 formation in the game against Burnley, but a 4—4—2 could be on the horizon following the arrival of Daniel James from Manchester United.
Preview Liverpool Premier League, Sep 12, 2021
Preview Liverpool return unbeaten, with their most recent performance being the 1-1 draw against Chelsea on the third day of the Premier League. After a few clear-cut chances at both ends, Kai Havertz (22') gave the Blues the lead mid-way through the first half. His remarkable reverse header over Liverpool's Alisson Becker dipped below the crossbar for the first goal of the game. Minutes later, Liverpool picked up the numerical advantage when Reece James (R. 45') was shown the red card after preventing a goal-bound effort with a well-disguised wayward arm. Despite feigning innocence, the mischief was spotted with the help of the VAR. Mohamed Salah (45'+5 P.) converted the following penalty after sending Mendy diving the wrong way. Fired up, and with a man more, Liverpool unleashed a barrage of attacks on Chelsea's defense, but the blue line held firm until the final whistle. The draw leaves Liverpool in 5th place while having 7 points and a G.D of +5 after 2W, 1D, & 0L. The Reds only appear below fourth-placed Chelsea on the table based on alphabetical order. Jürgen Klopp's 4—3—3 formation will see Diogo Jota in the middle of the attacking trio. The Liverpool boss confirmed the availability of Naby Keïta and Harvey Elliott for the game against Leeds United on Sunday. However, he is unsure if the squad's Brazilian players can face Leeds after the Brazil Football Confederation asked FIFA to block Premier League clubs from selecting several Brazilian players. The request comes at the heels of the row between the club and the country over international duties.
