The Premier League fixtures 19/20
The Premier League fixtures for next season have been released and we cannot wait for the season to start. There are already some big games on the opening weekend, with the biggest one coming on Sunday the 11th of August when Manchester United take on Chelsea. Elsewhere, Liverpool start the season off with a home game against newly-promoted Norwich on Friday 9th August. Manchester City start their title defence a day later when they travel to London to face West Ham.
August will be a big month for the Premier League as for the first four-game weeks there will be top six sides facing each other. In week two Manchester City will host Tottenham which will prove to be an import for both teams. Week three Liverpool will host Arsenal in a match that rarely disappoints, with the week after the North London derby taking place. So, by the beginning of September, there could already be some intriguing twists to the title race and race for the top four.
Other notable games to look out for are Liverpool’s first clash against Manchester City which will be on the 9th November which could have a significant impact on the title race. If last season is anything to go by then these two teams will be at the top of the table fighting for the title. The first Manchester Derby of the season will take place on the 7th December and should be a cracking game. Manchester United will spend big improve their squad and should be putting up more of a challenge than last season. Other big games to look out for are Arsenal Chelsea on 22nd January, Liverpool against Manchester United on 18th January and the Manchester City against Chelsea on March 25th, with many other big ones.
This is also the first season that the Premier League clubs will be given a break during February. They have split it up into two weeks so that one week 10 teams will have a break while the next week the other 10 teams will get a break.
