It’s a challenging start, but that is a great way to kick things off.

Leeds United will open the 2021/22 Premier League season with a tough trip to Manchester United, which should have a very spicy atmosphere (surely it will be full by then?).

Fixtures - from @LUFC on Twitter.

Leeds will have a fairly tough opening six games, with Everton and West Ham both able to provide difficulty, and a resurgent Liverpool to visit Elland Road.

The traditional Boxing Day fixture (until it gets moved for TV) is the trip to Anfield, which will be an incredibly sought after ticket. This is part of a very tough run over Christmas where Leeds play Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal, then Liverpool. That will be a struggle.

Leeds finish with an away trip to Brentford, which could have a lot on the line for either side given expectations.
