Liverpool faces Leeds United on Saturday, September 12th at Anfield for an English Premier League match.
The Premier League is already back and ready to start on September 12th. The short lay-off period between seasons will prove to be one of the positives that have been dealt to us fans during these unique times. Liverpool, the defending champions, are ready to get back on the pitch and defend their crown. Liverpool finished the 2019-20 season with a 32-3-3 record and 99 points. Liverpool was 18 points better than second-place Chelsea, as it was an absolutely dominant season for Liverpool. Liverpool may not have been the strongest club after the COVID-19 break ended in June, but the team was still able to flex its muscles a bit and win some impressive matches. Liverpool will not take a match like this for granted at Anfield, and I expect Liverpool's best efforts on Matchday One.
Leeds United is back in the Premier League for the first time since the 2003-04 season, and the club is ready to take on the challenge of the league's best in Liverpool on Saturday. Leeds United were the champions of the Championship league with a record of 28-9-9 and 93 points. Leeds United would like to think they are a club built to stay in the Premier League for quite some time, and that all starts on matchday one.
Leeds United and Liverpool have not met since November 29th of 2016. In that match, Liverpool was victorious by the final score of 2-0 at home in the English Carabao Cup. Liverpool was won four of the last five matches against Leeds United in the two team's history, with the other match being a 2-2 draw on February 29th, 2004.
I expect both teams to be ready to go in this one, but there is no way I can bet against the reigning champions on Saturday. Leeds United will have the chance to turn some heads and earn some respect from the Premier League world, but I expect this to be all Liverpool at Anfield. I will lay the 1.5 goals with Liverpool in this one.
