The start of the 2019 / 2020 Premier League season may still be some way off but the fixtures, for the forthcoming season, were officially released.
Although the dates given are, as always, subject to cannibalisation by the TV companies as they pluck their favoured games for live broadcast, at least we know the approximate order in which the games we played.
And, as it happens, Manchester United have been given a huge game to start the fresh season with when they welcome Chelsea to Old Trafford.
Below are the fixtures for the opening month and, to be honest, they are four fixtures we should be capable of winning.
• Chelsea (h) – Sunday 11 August
• Wolverhampton Wanderers (a) – Saturday 17 August
• Crystal Palace (h) – Saturday 24 August
• Southampton (a) – Saturday 31 August
Naturally, as always, there is huge interest on when the two derby games will be played, these are currently, although we’d be hugely surprised if they weren’t moved to accommodate live TV coverage, scheduled for:
• Manchester City (a) – Saturday 7 December
• Manchester City (h) – Saturday 7 March
As for the remainder of the fixtures, they can be viewed via the following link: BBC.
Exciting times ahead, I, for one, can’t wait for August.
