It looks set to be an intriguing affair, with Marcelo Bielsa’s side looking to cause a huge upset on the opening day of the new campaign.

What are the Liverpool v Leeds Tips?

Jurgen Klopp’s side can be backed at 1/4 to come out on top, with their opponents available at 9/1.

And it’s currently 11/2 for the pair to draw their opening fixture.

Patrick Bamford’s 16 goals last season were key in driving the club to first place in the table, but he may find game time hard to come by this time around after the big-money arrival of Rodrigo.

The Spaniard cost Leeds a record-breaking £30m, so big things are expected from him both at Elland Road and away from home.

He is currently available at 14/1 to score the first goal of the game on Saturday, and 4/1 to find a debut goal at some stage throughout the evening.

His fellow striker Bamford has also been given odds of 14/1 to score the opener at Anfield.

But their opponents possess some of the greatest attackers in the world, and all are players who will be keen to get off the mark on matchday one.

Wingers Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane can be backed at 11/4 and 15/4 respectively to net first, with Roberto Firmino available at 9/2.

The visitors are currently 28/1 to win from behind, and 18/1 to win to nil.

The hosts are 6/4 to win both halves, and 4/5 to score in both halves.

And it’s currently 13/8 for the Reds to win and both teams to score, with a Leeds victory and both teams to score available at 18/1.
