Premier League 2020/21 Fixtures see full list. The Premier League (EPL) fixtures for the new 2020/21 season opening Matchday 1 has been leaked online as West Ham host Liverpool the defending Champions, Chelsea welcomes Southampton at the Stamford Bridge, Manchester City host Crystal Palace, Arsenal face Manchester United, Tottenham at home to Aston Villa and Leicester City travel away to Wolves.
With the 2019-20 season still in its last knockings with the Champions League and Europa League yet to finish – the start of the new Premier League campaign is just four weeks away.
It will all start again on September 12 as Liverpool bid to defend their maiden Premier League crown and the rest bid to hunt the Reds down.
Clubs don’t have long to prepare – and are set to learn their fixture schedules at the end of next week.
But some fans believe they have already spotted the opening day fixtures – thanks to the Premier League’s official Fantasy Football game.
Next season’s edition is now live and fantasy managers across the globe can select their teams as they bid to get one over on their mates next term.
And what would appear to be a glitch in the game showed which side each player would be playing against for their clubs when selected by users.
The apparent leak shows a blockbuster opening-day clash between Manchester United and Arsenal, while Liverpool would start their title defence away at West Ham.
Chelsea are paired with Southampton at Stamford Bridge while Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side host Crystal Palace.
Leeds mark their return to the top flight with a home game against Newcastle, according to the leak, with Aston Villa travelling to Tottenham and Everton hosting Fulham.
An all-Midlands clash between Wolves and Leicester, Burnley travelling to West Brom and Brighton taking on Sheffield United completes the schedule.
However, the fact both Manchester teams are slated to play at home would suggest the leak may not be all that accurate.
