Leeds will mark their return to the Premier League after a 16-year wait with a mouthwatering trip to champions Liverpool on the opening day of the new season.
Leeds’ long-awaited return to the top-flight was confirmed in July, but they will face fellow new-boys Fulham at Elland Road in their first home game on September 19, followed by a trip to take on Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on September 26..
Marcelo Bielsa will be looking forward to pitting his wits against Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola on October 3 when their sides meet at the Etihad, with the first clash with Manchester United taking place at Old Trafford on December 19.
Burnley are the visitors to Elland Road on Boxing Day, while Leeds’ first game of 2021 is at Tottenham on January 2. The return game with Man Utd will be circled in red by supporters on April 24 – a week after the side host Liverpool on April 17.
It has been a long and often tortuous road back for Leeds but, after ending 16 years of anguish with the Championship title, they will hope for a successful first season back in the Premier League, which finishes with a trip to The Hawthorns to take on West Brom on May 23.
