Leeds United v Liverpool live stream: How to watch the Premier League from anywhere in the world
Watch a Leeds United v Liverpool live stream as the Premier League returns
Leeds United v Liverpool live stream, Sky Sports, Sunday 12 September, 4.30pm BST
Liverpool will be looking to make it 10 points from 12 when they face Leeds in the only Premier League match on Sunday.
The Reds were held to a 1-1 draw by Chelsea before the international break, despite playing the entire second half with a numerical advantage following Reece James' sending-off. Jurgen Klopp's side certainly could have done more to force the issue after the break, but it would be folly to write them off as potential title contenders. Granted, Liverpool were not particularly busy in the summer transfer market, but that in itself is not reason enough to dismiss their championship chances at this early stage of proceedings.
Leeds were thrashed by Manchester United on the opening weekend of the campaign, but they have picked up two points since then with draws against Everton and Burnley. Marcelo Bielsa's side will play their usual brand of high-octane football on Sunday, and the backing of the Elland Road crowd will help the home team on their way. However, there must be some concern about Liverpool picking off Leeds like Manchester United did last month.
Klopp has confirmed that Virgil van Dijk and Harvey Elliott are fit to feature after injury concerns over the international break. James Milner requires a late fitness test but is unlikely to start against his former club, while Takumi Minamino and Neco Williams are also doubts.
Roberto Firmino is suffering with a hamstring strain, but Alisson Becker and Fabinho are available for selection after the Brazilian FA resolved its quarrel with the Premier League at the eleventh hour.
Leeds will have Junior Firpo and Mateusz Klich available again after the duo were cleared to play following COVID-19 infections. The Brazilian winger Raphinha is free to play, but Robin Koch remains on the treatment table. Daniel James looks set to make his debut following his move from Manchester United last month.
Kick-off is at 4.30pm BST and the game is being shown live on Sky Sports Premier League and Sky Sports Main Event the UK.

Use a VPN to watch Premier league football from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch Steve Bruce’s extra-red face without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, including:
ExpressVPN including a 30-day, money-back guarantee
FourFourTwo’s brainy office mates TechRadar love its super speedy connections, trustworthy security and the fact it works with Android, Apple, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, PS4 and loads more. You also get a money-back guarantee, 24/7 support and it's currently available for a knockdown price. Go get it!
NordVPN with quality mobile and desktop apps
A cheaper option and almost ExpressVPN's equal when it comes to quality, too. A single subscription covers six connections, so you can use it on mobile, laptop, streaming devices and more, all at the same time.
Surfshark offers a great VPN at a fraction of the price
It's clear to see why Surfshark is top of TechRadar's best cheap VPN table – it combines an excellent product with bargain pricing, starting at £2/$2.50 a month!
