Footage has emerged on Twitter of Leeds United’s 2-0 victory against Liverpool in 1972, which has drawn an excited response from fans of the Yorkshire club.
Both clubs are currently nervously awaiting the return of the 2019/20 campaign and looked on course to complete significant achievements before the delay the season.
Liverpool are top of the Premier League and almost guaranteed to win their first title since 1990 if the season is concluded, while Leeds are top of the Championship and a frontrunner to secure promotion this term – meaning they’d end their 16-year absence from the top flight.
Footage of a top-flight meeting between the two sides from 1972 surfaced on Twitter last night.

Allan Clarke and Mick Jones were the heroes for the Whites on that day, helping the Yorkshire side claim a 2-0 win over Liverpool at Anfield.

Have Leeds United done these 15 things in the last 10 years? – Yes or no? Have a go now!
