Premier League fixtures 2020/21: See all Confirmed Opening day matches

Champions Liverpool will kick off the defence of their first Premier League title against promoted Leeds United.

The two sides will clash at Anfield for the first time since February 2004 on the opening day of the 2020/21 season, after the Whites won the Championship to seal their return to the top-flight.

The Premier League season will start on Saturday September 12, while the final day of the new season is scheduled to take place on May 23, 2021.

The campaign was initially planned to start on August 8 but was forced to be delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Elsewhere on the opening day, there is a London derby between newly-promoted Fulham and Arsenal, while the first Monday fixtures of the season see Brighton host Chelsea and Wolves visit Sheffield United.

Finally on the opening weekend, Crystal Palace meet Southampton, Tottenham take on Everton and Newcastle go to West Ham.

Manchester United and Man City have been given the opening day of the new season off due to their exertions in the 2019/20 European competitions, so their first matches will take place on September 19.

That also means their scheduled opponents, Burnley and Aston Villa, will not kick off their campaigns until September 19.
