Premier League is returning today with some exciting games. The 2020/2021 season will begin Fulham vs Arsenal match. While later on during the day the league champions Liverpool will take on newly-promoted Leeds United.
Ahead of the game, BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson has stated his prediction.
“Leeds are another team I’ve seen a lot of in the Championship and I’m looking forward to seeing how they get on in the top flight. I love the way they play.
“They are very Liverpool-like in terms of their pressing and their pace and I don’t see them struggling at all, even if this is an especially difficult opening game for them.
“I like the look of Leeds’ new striker Rodrigo and keep an eye out for Pablo Hernandez in midfield, who you might remember from his time with Swansea in the Premier League a few years back.
“He is 35 now and doesn’t start many games, but what a player he is when he comes off the bench – he has got fantastic vision and sees things no-one else in that team sees.”
Lawrenson’s score prediction: 2-0
