By on September 12, 2020 - 6 views

Leeds United travel to defending champions Liverpool in their first Premier League game in more than 16 years this evening.

Marcelo Bielsa has claimed he will continue to play his free-flowing football even away to the best team in England today.

The Reds have been quiet during the transfer window and were beaten in the FA Community Shield on penalties a fortnight ago.

The two teams are confirmed as:

Liverpool

Alisson; Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez, Virgil van Dijk, Andrew Robertson; Naby Keita, Jordan Henderson, Georginio Wijnaldum; Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane

Substitutes: Adrian, Joel Matip, Fabino, James Milner, Curtis Jones,
Takumi Minamino, Divock Origi

Jordan Henderson returns after missing the Community Shield whilst there are no surprises named by Jurgen Klopp.

Youngster Curtis Jones is among the substitutes.

Leeds United

Illan Meslier; Luke Ayling, Robin Koch, Pascal Struijk, Stuart Dallas; Kalvin Phillips, Helder Costa, Mateuz Klich, Pablo Hernandez, Jack Harrison; Patrick Bamford

Substitutes: Kiko Casilla, Oliver Casey, Ezgjan Alioski, Jamie Shackleton, Ian Poveda-Ocampo, Tyler Roberts, Rodrigo

Leeds United fans will be relieved to see Kiko Casilla benched with Illan Meslier arriving between the posts this summer.

England international Kalvin Phillips makes his Premier League debut, whilst Jack Harrison is on a second season-long loan from Manchester City.

Club record signing Rodrigo is only named on the bench as Patrick Bamford plays the sole striker role. The former Chelsea youngster wasted numerous great chances in the Championship last season.
