EPL: Manchester City Open Campaign Against West Ham as Liverpool Host Newly Promoted Norwich on Opening Day

The 2018/2019 Champions of the Premier League will begin their 2019/2020 season on matchday one with a trip to West Ham.

Meanwhile, runner-ups and Champions League winners Liverpool will host promoted Norwich City on Friday, 9 August.

Aston Villa and Sheffield United, the other promoted teams, play Tottenham and Bournemouth respectively.

For the first time in Premier League history, the clubs will get a short mid-season break in February.

The break will be staggered over a two-week period. There will be only five matches on one weekend, with the other five games from that round taking place the following weekend, ensuring that each team gets one week off.

The opening weekend will also see Manchester United hosting Chelsea on Sunday, 11 August.
