The fixtures for the 2019-20 Premier League season will be announced at 09:00 BST on Thursday.

The opening matches will be played on the weekend of Saturday, 10 August and the season will end on Sunday, 17 May.

Manchester City, who finished one point clear of European champions Liverpool, will be aiming to win the Premier League for a third season in a row.

Norwich City, Sheffield United and Aston Villa are all returning to the top flight after securing promotion.

Liverpool and Europa League winners Chelsea, minus Eden Hazard who has joined Real Madrid, have a busy start to the campaign as they will also meet in the Uefa Super Cup in Istanbul, Turkey on Wednesday, 14 August.

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

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

Over a two-week period, there will be only five matches on one weekend, with the other five games taking place the following weekend, ensuring that each team gets one week off.

Wild and bold predictions, ahoy.

Without Hazard, an aging squad, and likely no incoming new players, it'll either be a dogfight for 6th place or somehow we end up challenging for the title.

Perhaps we'll get Chelsea season variant #7: Club legend [Lampard] takes reigns...achieves remarkable cup success against all odds...is sacked within months. :shifty:

Do Amazon Prime still do 30 day free trials...

I've had an absolute mare, going for a weeks holiday end of November so I'd resigned myself to probably missing a game. Turns out I'm missing Man City and Southampton at home, plus that easily doable away game at Sheffield United.

It's our year. We will win the Charity Shield, FA Cup, League Cup, Super Cup, Club World Cup, Champions League and Prem. 

Mane will score 4 past Norwich both times 

City finally get their comeuppance for blatantly breaking FFP

United do shite under Ole and end up giving it to Quinton Fortune till end of season

It feels weird posting in this thread.   Here's to attempting to not finish bottom!

Away games at Spurs and Arsenal either side of Boxing Day is pretty weighty.

Feels a little surreal to not be caring about which weekends the home games fall on for once!

The Detroit Lions changed their gimmick to 'avoid relegation'. It was met with confusion.

Somebody at the FA has a sense of humour as they’ve given us Crystal Palace, Wolves and Leicester three games in a row again. <_<

City, Chelsea, United and Everton all around the festive season looks fantastic too.

Spurs away is scheduled for exactly 16 years to the day since we won the league at their place. 16 years:(

I’m back in the country between Christmas and New Year.

May take the Mrs to one of the United or Chelsea home games.

      I thought it would be appropriate to start this thread because the season starts one month from now (on 12 September) and because we have also found out that the fixtures will be announced on 21 August.
      We don’t know much at this stage, but I think it is safe to say that each team will play 38 games, coming up against each of the other 19 teams once at home and once away. There will of course be the standard 26 December game and exhaustive festive run, because tradition > common sense.
      Apart from when it comes to introducing VAR, of course.
      I hope all your teams exceed expectations this season, even though such an occurrence is impossible given that if one team is to perform better than expected, another must, sadly, fall up short. I can only pray that those of you who find their team in this position will not take this disappointment too hard.
      Finally, I want to say a little bit about why I have started this thread, despite not really supporting any one Premier League team (although I am of course happy to see West Brom and Fulham returning to the top flight after a lengthy absence; these giants of the game have been away for too long). I have started this thread because we all need to chip in and help Lineker. We sit idly by while he starts all these threads and it’s just not on. The poor boy isn’t getting any younger and I’m starting to worry that he might burn out. I wouldn’t want to see that, so get your shoulders to the wheel everyone.

      Regarding that line about us - I imagine that we will be refused that by the Premier League and we'll end up on the road for the first four games - which is fine.
      Predictions! Some seemingly obvious, some bold and unlikely to actually happen...
      Top 4 - Man City, Spurs, Man Utd, Liverpool. In a lot of ways I see it being a re-run of last season at the top. Emery improves Arsenal but they still fall short of cracking back into the CL spots. Chelsea struggle due to being so delayed with everything this summer (Conte's prolonged goodbye, unknown futures of Hazard and Courtois). Wolves finish in the top half of the table. Cardiff, Huddersfield, and Southampton to go down. Warnock wins the sack race; dismissed by Christmas

      Fixtures for the new Premier League season will be released at 9am tomorrow morning, so let's make some predictions for the new season which will probably look stupid in six months or so: 
      Spurs will only scrape top-4 due to the Wembley effect. Pep's Man City will struggle again due to Ederson failing to settle. Arsenal to finish 6th. Huddersfield and Brighton will survive. Newcastle will be relegated with a different manager in place by Christmas. Watford will be relegated. Bournemouth will finish above Southampton. Bilic or Puel will be the first manager to be sacked. Talking of Newcastle...

      Fixtures for the new Premier League season will be released tomorrow morning, so let's make some bold predictions for the new season ahead: 
      Leicester will only manage a top-ten finish. Chelsea will only make the Europe League spots at best. Top 4 of Man City, Man Utd, Spurs and Arsenal. In what order I have no idea. Liverpool will just miss out towards the very end of the season. Watford to continue to struggle under a new manager, particularly if one of Deeney or Ighalo leave, and get relegated. Bournemouth build on last season and do well again. Hull to straight back down to the Championship with Middlesborough. Burnley to just scrape survival, at the expense of... let's say Crystal Palace. Koeman's Everton to finish below his old club Southampton despite spending a metric fuckton of money. Pulis (WBA) or Guidolin (Swansea) to be sacked first.

      So yeah, it was kind of getting lost in the talks of actual football, but if you'd like to join the EWB Fantasy Premier League, the code is below. Use this thread for fantasy team discussions and such.
