In Pictures: In pictures: Liverpool and Leeds' classic encounters

Sides will meet on the opening weekend.

Premier League champions Liverpool will open the defence of their title with a tantalising clash against promoted Leeds.

The last time the sides met in the top flight was 16 and a half years ago due to Leeds' relegation in 2004.

Here, the PA news agency looks back some of the best images from what is a fixture steeped in history.
