James on the bench, Milner returns

New Leeds United signing Daniel James is named on the bench this afternoon by Marcelo Bielsa.

Junior Firpo returns for the Whites at left-back as Stuart Dallas shifts into midfield.

For the visitors, James Milner - a familiar name to Leeds - is named on the bench after being a doubt.

It is the former Thorp Arch academy graduates first visit to Elland Road as an opposition player with supporters in attendance.

Firpo speaks ahead of kick-off

Warm-ups well underway

Both sides are well into their warm-ups at Elland Road.

Jurgen Klopp has been strolling around the Elland Rod pitch taking in Elland Road and watching Marcelo Bielsa’s men be put through their paces.

Feels like it might be a loud one in LS11 this afternoon.

Leeds head back into the changing rooms first. A huge reception for the Whites squad at Elland Road. Liverpool follow them in.

A rendition of ‘Marching On Together’ and ‘We are Leeds’ are being belted out. It’s going to be a cracker.

Kick-off fast approaching

Elland Road is bouncing

Some atmosphere building in LS11. So great to have fans back inside Elland Road... Marching On Together is fine form ahead of kick-off.

Leeds out to raucous applause... Liverpool greeted by boos. Oh yes, we’re back... kick-off next.

1. After loud applause for the knee ahead of kick-off... we’re underway at Elland Road. It is LOUD.

2. The visitors seeing all of the ball so far. They’re knocking it around well. United’s home support is greeting it with boos. No chances to speak of, as yet.

4. Ayling floats a ball over the top of the Liverpool defence. Bamford is onto it as he chests it down and volley wide from a tight angle. The flag, though, is belatedly raised on the nearside.
