Spurs will face newly-promoted Norwich while Liverpool will face the trip to Burnley – if this year’s “leaked fixtures” are to be believed.
The Premier League fixtures are officially revealed on Thursday at 9am, but as happens every year an image circulating online has supposedly ‘leaked’ the first round of games.
The list of fixtures – beginning on Saturday August 10 – has Spurs hosting Norwich at the new White Hart Lane in what is a difficult test for the Canaries, who secured a return to the top flight last season by finishing top of the Championship.
The other automatically promoted team, Sheffield United, face the long trip to Bournemouth – while Crystal Palace host Arsenal in a London derby.
Everton face Newcastle at Goodison Park and Chelsea travel to the south coast to face Southampton, while West Ham face the somewhat shorter trip to Watford and Liverpool would head to Burnley for the evening kick-off.
The first ‘Super Sunday’ would see Play-Off winners Aston Villa host Midlands rivals Leicester City, with Manchester United beginning at Old Trafford against Brighton.
Finally, champions Manchester City would face the trip to Molineux to play Wolves on Monday Night Football – but as we know, these ‘leaks’ can always be taken with a generous pinch of salt…
The Premier League fixtures for the opening day have apparently been leaked ahead of tomorrow’s reveal.
If the leak is accurate, Liverpool will head to Turf Moor to play Burnley on the opening day, with a 5:30pm kickoff on Saturday. pic.twitter.com/fur2EgDjnX
