Liverpool vs Leeds TV channel, live stream & how to watch

Manchester United's 2-0 win against Brighton on February 15 wasn't broadcasted on television, and neither will Leeds' trip to Liverpool due to the fact BT Sport is staging Champions League fixtures once again instead.

However, the Anfield clash, which was rearranged from its original Boxing Day date due to a breakout of Covid-19 in the Leeds camp, will be available to watch for supporters in the U.S via Peacock TV on either television or live stream.

Liverpool will be at full strength for the visit of Leeds aside from the continued absence of attacking duo Roberto Firmino and Diogo Jota, both of whom missed the clash with Norwich due to injury and need more time to recover.

Klopp rested Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ibrahima Konate, Harvey Elliot, Fabinho and Thiago Alcantara against the Canaries, but all could be recalled as the Reds continue to negotiate their way through a hectic schedule while still in four different competitions.

Leeds are set to be largely unchanged from their loss to United, but Robin Koch will sit out the trip to Liverpool due to concussion protocols, having been forced off early at Elland Road following a collision with Scott McTominay.

Marcelo Bielsa won't be able to call upon Liam Cooper, Patrick Bamford or Kalvin Phillips either as they all remain sidelined with serious knocks.

Liverpool 3-1 Cardiff (Feb 6)

West Ham 2-3 Leeds (Jan 16)

Leeds are in miserable form heading into their meeting with Liverpool, having lost three of their last four games.

Bielsa's men have conceded 11 goals during that period and now sit just five points above the drop zone, but they do have games in hand on Brentford and Crystal Palace just above them and will be motivated to spring an upset.

In stark contrast, the Reds have won their last eight on the bounce in all competitions and haven't tasted defeat since their 1-0 loss away at Leicester on December 28.

Liverpool can close the gap to City at the top to just three points if they beat Leeds before they switch their attention to a Carabao Cup final date with Chelsea at Wembley on February 27.
