How to watch Liverpool vs Leeds?
Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League
The biggest match of the Premier League return sees last season's champions Liverpool face Championship winners Leeds.
Liverpool won their first title in 30 years last season and in the past two campaigns have managed at least 97 points. Another season with over 90 points will be what everyone is expecting despite it being a fairly rare occurrence in the history of the league. Liverpool started last season with 26 wins in 27 matches; it's unlikely that will be replicated, but they'll back themselves to achieve something similar.
Liverpool are at 27/100 to beat Leeds in the first game of their Premier League defence.
Back in the Premier League
Leeds are finally back in the Premier League after a 16-year absence. They won last season's Championship comfortably in the end and their main objective this season will be to survive the drop. A result at Anfield will be a perfect start to a daunting task. Leeds are at 9/1 to get a surprise win over Liverpool.
This is the first league match between the pair in 16 years although there have been two league cup matches since then which resulted in Liverpool wins. The odds are stacked against Leeds in this match; however, fans and pundits alike will be curious to see how Leeds deal with the step up to the top flight. Leeds will need to deal with not seeing as much of the ball compared to past seasons, and they will be up against teams that are much more clinical in attack. The Yorkshiremen made a big signing during the transfer window — paying £30 million for Spanish striker Rodrigo. Will he get on the scoresheet during his debut? He's at 4/1 to score at any stage. To make things even more ominous for Leeds, Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 59 matches at Anfield and are on a 17-match winning streak against newly promoted sides.
Injuries and suspensions
Liverpool: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Xherdan Shaqiri and Jordan Henderson (doubt).

Liverpool to win and both teams to score at 8/5.
