The new Premier League season kicks off at Anfield on August 9, with Liverpool hosting newly promoted Norwich.
Title-holders Man City begin their defence with a trip to West Ham on Saturday 10 August – a potentially tricky fixture for Pep and the lads – while the big fixture of the opening weekend is Sunday’s clash at Old Trafford, as Man United take on Chelsea.
Sky Sports are primed to show at least four of the big six title hopefuls from the first round, with all dates for the new 2019/20 season published here.
Sundays next season sees Sky take control of any matches shown – which means they have scooped the big one between United and Chelsea, as well as Newcastle against Arsenal.
In fact, August sees four matches between the big six.
Other than United taking on Chelsea in the opening Sunday, you’ve got Man City hosting Spurs on August 17, Liverpool taking on Arsenal on August 24 and the big North London derby at the Emirates on August 31.
Chelsea’s start to the season is certainly interesting, as the club look destined to lose manager Maurizio Sarri this summer to go along with their transfer ban.
And after playing United on August 11, they have the UEFA Super Cup to contest against Liverpool just three days later.
