The organisers of the English Premier League on Thursday unveiled the opening weekend fixture for the 2020/21 season.
In the schedule, Champions Liverpool will face Championship winners Leeds United in the weekend’s standout game.
Championship play-off winners Fulham will host Arsenal, while West Bromwich Albion, the third promoted side, plays at home to Leicester City.
The opening round of fixtures will take place on the weekend of September 12.
However, the match between Manchester City and Aston Villa and Burnley versus Manchester United will be rearranged.
Those two games will not be played on the opening weekend to give City and United 30 days since their defeats in the quarter-finals of the Champions League and the semi-finals of the Europa League respectively.
Chelsea and Wolverhampton Wanderers’ opening matches are both scheduled for Monday, September 14 after their slightly earlier European exits.
