Leeds United face the tricky task of a visit from last season’s champions Liverpool on Monday evening.

The Whites moved into the top half of the table with a late win over Manchester City last weekend, and have the opportunity to cement their place in the upper reaches following Arsenal’s 1-1 draw against Fulham on Sunday afternoon.

But Marcelo Bielsa has made it clear that the Whites could be in for a tough time against the Reds.

Speaking in a press conference, he said: “I like to see Liverpool play. They always play in the same manner.

“For me, that’s big praise to give to a team. There’s no player in their team who’s not prepared to receive the ball and manage the ball in whatever part of the pitch they receive it.

“They have a big offensive power. Their full-backs are wingers.

“Their wingers are centre-forwards, throughout moments in the game. Their midfielders on the inside, they attack out wide in the same manner.

“And after there’s three players who provide defensive equilibrium which are the two centre-backs and the defensive midfielder.

“I think they are a team that constantly thinks in producing football. They don’t speculate, attacks always. They spend a lot of time attacking and not so much defending.

“And when they have to defend I think they do it well, putting into consideration the amount of energy they expend attacking. Then like every team, they have ups and downs.”

Here are today's biggest transfer stories and the latest team news involving Leeds and the rest of the Premier League, as the reaction to last weekend's action continues:
