The Premier League is set to begin with a bang as Manchester United invite old rivals Leeds United to Old Trafford while champions Manchester City begin their title defence against Tottenham Hotspur in the first matchday of the 2021/22 season as Premier League fixtures are announced.




On Wednesday, the Premier League had released the fixtures and the date of all the 380 matches and are set to begin on 14 August 2021, at 15:00 BST on Saturday. The newly released Premier League fixtures list for 2021/22 has added to the excitement of the summer.

Elsewhere in the first round of fixtures, Championship winners Norwich take on Liverpool at home, with the Premier League first-timers Brentford host Arsenal at the Community Stadium.



The 2021-22 campaign is set to revert back to the older format of starting in August and finishing up in May after the previous Premier League season saw a cramping up of fixtures due to the deadly Coronavirus pandemic.



Champions Manchester City’s start to the season could not have been more difficult as they are set to face four of the big six in their first seven games, which also includes a tricky tie away at Leicester. The December fixtures, however, are quite favourable, with the game against the Foxes on Boxing Day being the only difficult one.

Contrary to their neighbours, Manchester United and Ole Gunnar Solksjaer have been given a kind start to the Premier League season, with most of their starting fixtures being comparatively easy. But their tricky run arrives in the middle of October and is set to continue till the end of November, as they are set to face the five clubs from the big six and Leicester in seven matches in the space of six weeks.

This period might also have their Champions League fixtures cramped into the midweeks, making the six weeks an exhausting yet thrilling situation for them.

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool start off against promoted side Norwich and when compared to the above two, their fixtures at the start are somewhat on the moderate side of things. Chelsea travel to Anfield in the third matchday while Leeds are to host the Merseyside club seven days later.

Champions League winners Chelsea also are facing a tough start to their Premier League campaign as they start off with a tricky London derby against Crystal Palace and face four of the big six in the next five fixtures, till the end of September. Their December fixtures are relatively easy, however, with Aston Villa awaiting to host them on Boxing Day.
