The Premier League has announced the matches that will be broadcast live in the UK for the new campaign, with Liverpool getting the ball rolling

The Premier League confirmed on Friday, July 5 which of the fixtures in the opening two months of the season will be moved for television coverage.

The season will begin on the weekend of August 9-11, with Champions League winners Liverpool raising the curtain on the new campaign as they welcome promoted Norwich to Anfield on the Friday night.

Manchester City, the defending champions, will be next to play, with a trip to West Ham lined up for Pep Guardiola’s side as a lunchtime kick off on August 10, which is the only opening-weekend fixture on BT Sport. Later that same day, Tottenham will play host to Aston Villa, another newly-promoted team.

On Sunday, August 11, meanwhile, the opening weekend programme continues with the early kick-off being Arsenal’s trip to Newcastle, though the undoubted highlight is Frank Lampard’s Premier League managerial debut as he takes his Chelsea side to Manchester United, where he famously claimed a win in the Carabao Cup with Derby last term.

With European football beginning the following midweek, Arsenal’s match against Aston Villa has been moved to the Sunday but will not be shown live on television in the UK. Indeed, that weekend’s action begins with Southampton against Bournemouth on the Friday, with neither of the south coast clubs competing on the continent.

Chelsea’s meeting with Liverpool at Stamford Bridge is the standout match of that weekend.
