Premier League winners Manchester City will start their campaign with an away fixture against West Ham while Liverpool host Norwich.

The newly promoted sides Aston Villa and Sheffield United will be playing Tottenham and Bournemouth respectively.

For the first time ever in the leagueโ€™s history, a mid-season break in February is set to be introduced for all the clubs.

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.

Immediately on the first matchday, there will be one of the biggest matches of the season between Solskjaerโ€™s Manchester United and Chelsea.

Challenging start for some

The first match of the season will be the Community Shield clash between Liverpool and Manchester City at Wembley on Sunday, 4 August.

Another big match of the season will go down just ten days later as Champions League winners Liverpool face Europa League winners Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup match in Istanbul, Turkey.

Wolves could have played three Europa League qualifying matches before the beginning of the Premier League season.

 

The mid-season break

In total, the Premier League will have 380 matches during the 2019-20 season.

For the first time in history, there will be a one week break for each team in the English top-flight. Five matches will be taking place over the weekend of 8 February while another five will take place over the following weekend.

At present, all the games are scheduled for 8 February but these will be broken up when the broadcast picks for that period are announced in mid-December.
