Premier League Fixtures 2019-20 announced

The fixtures were announced on Thursday 13th June

Footy fans get in. The fixtures for the 2019-20 Premier League season were announced on 9am Thursday (13th June). The new season will commence on Friday the 9th of August and will go on until the 17th May 2020.

Liverpool will be kicking off the new season on Friday 9th of August with a match against the newly promoted Norwich City. This will be the only match played on the first night, with more to follow on the Saturday. The other promoted teams competing in the Premier League this year are Sheffield United and Aston Villa.

You can find the full fixtures for the rest of the season here.

With the full fixtures for the season just being released on Thursday, there is already a lot of fuss and speculation by online betting sites and major news outlets over how this year will play out. There have even been a few tabloid news pieces talking about supercomputer predictions for the outcome of the season after being fed the fixtures. The computer's prediction indicated that Man City would once again come out on top, however this should ultimately be taken with a grain of salt as there are some strong teams this season. There's always the chance of witnessing a historic upset.

How the teams will fare

Current champions Man City's home field- Etihad Stadium

The current Premier League champions Manchester City have a good start to the season, facing only one of the top 6 sides in their first 11 matches. In their first 6 games only their home game against Tottenham on the 17th August will present a real challenge to getting all 3 points. They also signed a huge £65 million a year kit sponsorship deal with Puma for 10 years which will net the team over £650 million in total.

Arsenal have a fairly difficult start this year, with their first match being an away-game against Newcastle, who have a pretty strong team as is - but also have new investors this year who will possibly be looking to bring a few new players in to strengthen the side. In their 3rd match they will face off against Liverpool which are going to be a tough side to beat. There are a few rumours swirling about possible transfers and trades for Arsenal, which may help toughen the team up. They also have a new sponsor in Adidas, with new kits expected to be revealed on the 1st of July.

Manchester United have possibly the most difficult start to the season with their match against Chelsea on the opening weekend, then later a match against the Wolves who beat them twice last season. Solskjaer is under pressure this season, with United's schedule also seeing them play against Southampton, Leicester and West Ham.

The Old Trafford boys face quite a difficult start this season.

Top 3 Matches to Watch Out For

1) Manchester United vs. Chelsea – Aug 11:

There's a lot of pressure on Manchester manager Solskjaer this year after a poor showing last season. At the same time Chelsea may be under new management by the start of the season, so whoever steps up will undoubtedly be looking to start off strong.

2) Manchester United vs. Liverpool – Oct 19:

This will be yet another clash of the titans. Both teams will be desperate to smash their rivals, and the match itself will provide a good benchmark to determine how likely either team are of winning the title.

3) Liverpool vs. Manchester City – Nov 9:

European Champions vs Premier League Champions. This will be one of the most crucial matches of the season as the two top teams from last season compete to show which of them is more likely to take the win.

New to the Premier League this year is a short mid-season break in February for the players to rest and recharge. This was agreed in June of last year between the Premier League, the EFL and The Football Association. One round of matches will be split over two weekends to allow for the break, with five matches on the weekend starting 8th February and five on the following weekend starting 15th February, meaning that each team will get at least one week off.

So that's a quick look at the opening schedule and the newly released fixtures for the 2019/20 season. Some teams will have a more difficult start to the season than others, while reigning champions Man City will have an easy first few matches at least. As always however, it promises to be a good season. Footy fans rejoice, the Premier League is back!
