A London derby awaits on the opening day while Spurs vs Man City & Man Utd vs Leeds include other mouth-watering fixtures.

The 2020/21 Premier League season will get underway on August 14 with Manchester City starting their title defense away to Tottenham.

Man City, who won the title by a huge 12-point gap, will also face Arsenal, Leicester, Chelsea, and Liverpool in their first seven league games.

Elsewhere on the opening weekend, Arsenal take on Brentford, who will be playing in the English top-flight for the first time in 75 years. Liverpool pay a visit to Norwich City, another newcomers, while Chelsea entertain Crystal Palace.

Manchester United, runners-up of last season, host old foes Leeds United while FA Cup winners Leicester City go against Wolves.

Man United have a relatively easy start, with matches against Southampton, Wolves, Newcastle United, West Ham, Aston Villa, and Everton before the first international break.

Arsenal, who finished eighth in the league standings last time out, face Chelsea and Man City in the first month of the new campaign.

 25 September will see a repeat of the Champions League final between Chelsea and Man City and a north London derby between Arsenal and Spurs will be played on the same day. November 6 will offer the first Manchester derby while a Merseyside derby will follow at the end of the month.

The 2021/22 Premier League campaign concludes on May 22, with Chelsea, Leicester, Liverpool, and Man City playing host to Watford, Southampton, Wolves, and Aston Villa respectively.
