Garry Monk sends message to Leeds fans ahead of Liverpool quarter-final

Leeds manager Garry Monk

Leeds boss says team want to compete against Liverpool.

Leeds United boss Garry Monk has sent a message to supporters ahead of Tuesday night's EFL Cup quarter-final.

The Whites face Liverpool at Anfield, a daunting proposition for any team based on the Reds' outstanding form this season.

Liverpool sit in second place in the Premier League, just one point off the top, and look like a team capable of challenging for the title.

Leeds themselves look like a different side under Garry Monk, and are higher in the Championship that at any point since owner Massimo Cellino took over in 2014.

The Whites sit in fifth place after their win over Rotherham at the weekend, it would not be a total surprise if they pulled off a result.

Garry Monk sent a message to fans last night, confirming the team have arrived in Liverpool ahead of the fixture, and are hopeful they can be competitive.

Leeds head to Liverpool without any pressure, simply hoping to avoid getting hammered.

If they play with freedom and avoid conceding an early goal then Liverpool's nerves may begin to jangle, and with the side proving their quality on penalties in the last round against Norwich, anything is possible.
