Diogo Jota may lead Liverpool to an unbeaten 14 with 7th heaven on the road – Liverpool FC

Centuries of goals are still at stake for Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, but it’s Diogo Jota’s record on the road that could well extend the Reds’ undefeated run.

Liverpool have scored in each of their last eight visits to Leeds – a run that has been expanded to include 15 home and away games.

The last two Elland Road meetings in the league had come to an end, and there had not been a third straight league draw in Leeds since 1930 (one in four).

Liverpool have been unbeaten in their last 13 league games (10 wins, three draws) since their home defeat to Fulham last March.

Since losing 3-1 at Leicester in February, they have played eight away league games without a loss.

Mo Salah is a goal less than 100 in the top division in England, 97 of them for Liverpool.

29 players had previously reached a century of goals in the Premier League era.

Liverpool’s number 11 has scored 16 goals in their last 20 away games in all competitions.

And Sadio Mane is two goals away, registering 100 for Liverpool in all competitions, and when he reaches the century he will be the 18th Reds player in history to achieve the feat.

Jota enjoys his travels

Diogo Jota has scored six goals for the Reds in his last six away league games.

None of the Big 6 won the league at Elland Road last season – five of them were drawn, with the exception of Tottenham, who lost 3-1.

Leeds have been unbeaten at home in their last six league games (three wins, four draws) since losing 1-0 to Aston Villa in March.

In their last 47 league games at home and away, Leeds have beaten Liverpool seven times.

Marcelo Bielsa – at 66 years old, the oldest current coach in the Premier League. He has looked after 71 wins in 133 league games.

Patrick Bamford was the club’s top scorer with 17 goals last season – all in the league.

Only Harry Kane, Salah and Bruno Fernandes scored in the top division. He has scored 18 goals in 41 Premier League games for the club.

But they are aiming for their first league win of the season after losing at Manchester United (5-1) and then drawing at home to Everton (2-2) and Burnley (1-1).

They conceded half of their eight league goals this season between the 46th and 60th minute.
