Premier League fixtures released: Open-day wins for Liverpool & Man City?

The 2019/20 Premier League fixtures have been released and the bookmakers are predicting winning starts for last season’s top two, Manchester City and Liverpool.

Treble-winning City rode a red-hot run of form during the final few months of last season to finish just one point clear of the Reds, and these two clubs are expected to slug it out for the title once again when the new season gets underway in early August.

Liverpool will be the first of these two clubs to kick-off their campaign when they host newly-promoted Norwich City at Anfield on Friday, August 9 and it is no surprise to see bookmaker William Hill making them odds-on favourites in the match betting at 1/8, with the visiting Canaries 16/1 to spring a major surprise in their first game back in the top flight.

City begin the defence of their title less than 24 hours later when they visit West Ham United for the first Saturday lunchtime match of the season. Pep Guardiola’s side won their final 14 matches of the 2018/19 campaign as they pipped Liverpool to the title, and William Hill clearly expects them to pick up from where they left off having made the champions 2/7 favourites for this season-opener at the London Stadium. 

But undoubtedly the biggest match of the weekend has to be the ‘Super Sunday’ showdown between Manchester United and Chelsea at Old Trafford. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side endured a miserable run-in after he was handed the reins on a permanent basis, and the bookies do not have a huge amount of confidence in him steering the Red Devils in the right direction. United are 11/8 to claim all three points while Chelsea, who could have club legend Frank Lampard in charge, are 7/4 to enjoy a winning start and heap even more pressure on the ‘Baby-Faced Assassin’.

Elsewhere, Tottenham Hotspur are 1/4 to make sure Aston Villa’s first match back in the Premier League is a losing experience, while it is 5/6 that Arsenal make a winning start when they visit Newcastle United – a team they have beaten in 12 of their last 13 encounters!

It is 12/5 that Graham Potter’s Brighton reign starts with a victory at Watford, while Sheffield United are 3/1 underdogs for the trip to Bournemouth as the bookmakers predict defeat for all three clubs that were promoted from the Championship at the end of last season.
