In addition to Manchester United's mouthwatering 2021/22 Premier League opener against Leeds United, there are nine other interesting fixtures on the first weekend – including another high-profile encounter.

We get under way again on 14/15 August, hopefully with supporters able to attend, with the visit of Marcelo Bielsa's side to Old Trafford clearly one of the highlights.

The Reds, of course, won the game 6-2 last term in one of the most entertaining contests of the entire campaign, with four of our goals coming in the first half.

The Reds will kick off next season with an absolute cracker in August.

There is also a huge clash between Tottenham and champions Manchester City in the capital, with the home side still looking for a new manager.
