After finally achieving the hold grail, can Liverpool go again?

Last season, Liverpool won the Premier League, thereby ending their 30-year wait for a league title.

They finished 18 points clear of Manchester City and one of a whole host of records they broke was winning the title the earliest in English top-fight history, doing so with seven games remaining.

It’s been a trophy laden period for the Reds who also won the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup in 2019.

However, after amassing 195 points in the last two seasons, can Jürgen Klopp motivate his team to go again?

They have actually already played a competitive game this season when, a fortnight ago, they took on Arsenal in the FA Community Shield at Wembley.

The Gunners took the lead but, late on Takumi Minamino equalised to force a penalty shootout.

The Japanese international becoming the first Liverpool player ever to score their first goal for the club at Wembley.

In the shootout, Mo Salah, Fabinho, Minamino and Curtis Jones all scored but Rhian Brewster’s miss was costly as Arsenal won 5-4.

Now though, the serious business begins and Liverpool are going to have to start fast with numerous teams itching to take their crown.

Will Liverpool start the season with a home win?

Will Leeds return with a shock win?

2019/20 was also a historic season for Leeds United.

The Whites gained promotion back to the Premier League for the first time since relegation way back in 2004.

A year earlier, they suffered a heartbreaking defeat to Derby County in the play-offs but won automatic promotion this time around.

They actually ended the season as Championship Champions, finishing ten points clear of runners-up West Bromwich Albion.

Having won three top division titles, most recently in 1992, as well as an FA Cup, a League Cup and two Inter-Cities Fairs Cup, Leeds are undoubtedly one of the biggest clubs in England.

Thus, it is great to have them back in the Premier League.

It’s been too long.

Their rise has, of course, been masterminded by Marcelo Bielsa.

In this game, he will become the second-oldest permanent post-war manager to take charge of an English top-flight game, aged 65 years and 53 days.

Only Dick Advocaat, when at Sunderland, has been older.

He’ll be looking to preserve Leeds’ impressive record on Premier League opening weekends.

The Peacocks have never lost their first Premier League game of the season, unbeaten in all 12 they’ve played.

No team comes close to matching that.

However, they’ll do very well to preserve that stat but can they cause a huge shock at the home of the champions?

Liverpool team news vs Leeds United

The big news at Liverpool is the fact there are unlikely to be any debutants in this XI due to another quiet summer.

Alisson will be in goal looking to avoid a repeat of the opening day of last season when he went off injured very early.

In defence, the usual back four is likely to start despite all being on UEFA Nations League duty last week.

Joe Gomez will be Virgil van Dijk’s partner in the middle, chosen ahead of Joël Matip.

Dejan Lovren has left this summer for Zenit Saint Petersburg.

At full-back, Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson have provided 25 and 31 assists respectively over the last two seasons.

The one new singing they have made is a left-back; Kostas Tsimikas has joined from Olympiacos for £11.75 million.

However, he’s unlikely to feature as he’s very much a back-up.

In midfield, Fabinho is a guaranteed starter but the two places alongside him are up for grabs.

With Jordan Henderson injured, James Milner and Georginio Wijnaldum are likely to start, just as they did in the Community Shield.

Milner made his debut in the Premier League for Leeds way back on 10 November 2002, over half his lifetime ago.

Naby Keïta, Marko Grujić and Curtis Jones are the alternatives; Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is injured.

In attack, the usual front three all lined-up at Wembley and will all do so again here, refreshed having all not been on international duty.

Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mané will start alongside last season’s top scorer Mohamed Salah.

The Egyptian can become the first Liverpool player to score  in four consecutive Premier League opening day.

In fact, the only player to achieve this for any club is Teddy Sheringham, who did so between 1992 and 1995.

Takumi Minamino, Xherdan Shaqiri, Rhian Brewster Harvey Elliott and Divock Origi are all likely to see minutes in this accelerated season.

Will the Champions start as they mean to go on?

Leeds United team news vs Liverpool

Marcelo Bielsa

As for Leeds United, they could hand debuts to a couple of new singings but will largely go with what got them up

They were, somewhat, expected to make an edition in goal but Kiko Casilla will seemingly continue as the number one.

Luke Ayling and Barry Douglas are the usual full-backs.

In the heart of defence though, they’ve been significantly weakened because Ben White has returned to Brighton after an outstanding loan spell.

So, captain Liam Cooper’s partner could be Robin Koch who’s joined from Freiburg and would make his debut.

In midfield, now an England international, Kalvin Phillips is usually a single pivot in a 4-1-4-1.

Stuart Dallas, who’s played nine different positions for Bielsa, and Mateusz Klich could make up the midfield with Ezgjan Alioski and Pablo Hernández out-wide.

Adam Forshaw is an alternative holding midfield; Jack Harrison and Hélder Costa are the other wingers available.

In attack, Patrick Bamford may struggle to find goals but doesn’t struggle for start and is expected to lead the line.

Rodrigo, who’s joined from Valencia for £27 million, is most likely to make his debut from the bench.

Will Leeds secure a memorable opening day result?
