Leeds boss Bielsa: I like to watch Liverpool play

Leeds United boss Marcelo Bielsa says he enjoys watching Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool.

After getting the better of Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola last week, Bielsa now pits his wits against Klopp on Monday night.

"I like to watch Liverpool play," he said. "They always play in the same manner. For me, that's big praise for a team. There's no player in their team not prepared to receive the ball and manage it anywhere.

"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 attack out wide or on the inside in the same manner.

"There's three players providing defensive balance with the two centre-backs and defensive midfielder. They're a team constantly producing good football. They spend a lot of time attacking and not so much defending. And like every team, they have ups and downs."
