Chelsea will start life without the influential Eden Hazard in Old Trafford with United, who needs a quick start after a nasty end to last season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Upon their return to the top plane Aston Villa host Spurs, while Sheffield United are away in Bournemouth. City just skipped Liverpool by a point in last season's exciting game, but seems to have the easier run-in this time if the title were to go back to the wire.
The highlights. The lows. The victories. The losses. The passion. The pride. The support. 📅 Friday, August 9. The Premier League is coming back. #PLfixtures #PremierLeagueFixtures pic.twitter.com/jGf2dm4DY3 – Premier League (@premierleague) June 13, 2019
The men of Pep Guardiola do not face teams that ended in their last six games in the last half of the season after the Liverpool visit.
The European champions, on the other hand, travel to Arsenal and receive Chelsea to visit Newcastle in their last three games of the campaign.
For the first time in the history of the Premier League, the clubs get a short mid-season stop in February.
During a two-week period, there are only five games in one weekend, while the other five games take place the following weekend, giving each team a week off.
