The international break is finally over and Jurgen Klopp's men will be looking to carry on where they left off in the Premier League and continue their unbeaten run. 

They face Leeds United at Elland Road on Sunday afternoon who have proved in the past to be a tough opponent for Liverpool

The Reds are coming into the match off a 1-1 draw with Chelsea having picked up seven points from their opening three games. A win for Liverpool could see them rise to first in the league. 

Leeds on the other hand will be eyeing up a potential first win of the season having drawn two and lost one.

To the fortunes of Liverpool both Alisson and Fabinho are eligible to start. Worries arose after the Brazilian FA initially asked FIFA to suspend the players who were held back from representing their national team by their respected clubs due to COVID-19 and isolation concerns. However, all parties involved came to an agreement meaning Alisson and Fabinho are able to feature in Sunday's match.

However, Liverpool will be without another Brazilian in Roberto Firmino who is still recovering from a hamstring injury he sustained against Chelsea. 

Takumi Minamino is also set to miss the match after he picked up a knock on international duty.

James Milner is in contention as he returned to training, whilst the boss also confirmed both Virgil van Dijk and Harvey Elliot are fully fit after both players picked up knocks during the break. 

For Marcelo Bielsa's men Robin Koch is ruled out but new signing Daniel James is available to make his debut. 

There is also a return for Stuart Dallas, Junior Firpo and Mateusz Klich who all missed Leeds' previous visit to Burnley. 

Predicted lineups

Liverpool (4-3-3): Alisson, Alexander-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Robertson, Fabinho, Henderson, Thiago, Mane, Jota, Salah

Leeds (4-1-4-1): Meslier, Ayling, Struijk, Cooper, Firpo, Phillips, Raphina, Dallas, Klich, Harrison, Bamford

Ones to watch

Mohamed Salah bagged himself a hattrick when these two sides met at Anfield last season. Leeds will be hoping to keep the Egyptian quiet this time around who has already got himself two goals and two assists this season. 

For Liverpool, they need to look out for James. Leeds' £26.6m summer signing from Manchester United has immense pace and can be very dangerous in attack. Alexander-Arnold will most likely have his work cut out for the 90 minutes. 

Where to watch

The match will be shown live on Sky Sports Premier League with coverage starting at 4PM and kick-off at 4:30Pm
