The Premier League fixtures are announced for the 2021/22 season so we have a look at when the key clashes will take place.
It is always an exciting day when the Premier League fixtures are announced as fans up and down the country now know what the upcoming season will look like. Hopefully, fans can also plan those away days as more fans are expected back in the stadiums.
The opening day will see a London derby as newly-promoted Brentford host Arsenal and Manchester City will begin the defence of their title with a mouth-watering trip to Spurs. It is a ground on which City have lost 2-0 on their last two trips.
Meanwhile, Manchester United will play Leeds United as United look to go one better than their second-place finish last season. Liverpool will kick off away at Norwich City and Chelsea will host Crystal Palace in another London derby.
Arguably the biggest game in club football (if global viewing figures are anything to go by) is Liverpool against Manchester United. They will meet at Old Trafford on the weekend of the 23rd October and then play at Anfield on the 19th March.
Last year’s top two, Manchester City and Manchester United, will meet at Old Trafford on the 6th November and then at the Etihad Stadium on the 5th March in what is also the Manchester derby.
The first North London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur is going to be at The Emirates on the 25th September and they will then play at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on the 15th January.
Liverpool are scheduled to first take on Everton in the Merseyside derby at Goodison Park on a weeknight at the end of November and will then play them at Anfield on the 23rd April.
Aston Villa will play Wolves on the 16th October at Villa Park and they will then face each other at Molineux on the 2nd April.
