Leeds are one of eight different teams the Reds will meet in October, with the visit of Jesse Marsch’s side now scheduled for Saturday, October 29, with kick-off at 7.45pm (UK).
The late Saturday start follows midweek Champions League action at Ajax on Wednesday (Oct 26) and precedes the visit of Napoli (Nov 1) just three days later.
