Fans are eagerly awaiting to see who their team will face when the new campaign kicks off on August 10.

But supporters have been given a glimpse of what could be in store in a screenshot supposedly showing the Premier League’s opening day games.

It reveals that Champions League runners-up Tottenham will begin the season at home to Norwich in a match shown live on Sky Sports at 12.30pm.

Fellow new boys Sheffield United travel to Bournemouth in a 3pm kick-off, while Europa League finalists Arsenal and Chelsea travel to Crystal Palace and Southampton.

Everton host Newcastle and West Ham travel to Watford in the other games in the TV ‘blackout’ period on the opening Saturday of the season.

Burnley host Liverpool at 5.30pm in a match slated to be live on BT Sport.

The third newly-promoted side, Aston Villa, supposedly begin life back in the top flight at home to Midlands rivals Leicester on Sky.

Manchester United vs Brighton is the Sky Sports match at 4pm on the opening ‘Super Sunday’ of the 2019-20 season.

On Monday Night Football, champions Manchester City get the defence of their title underway at Molineux against Wolves.

Fans will be able to find out if the leaked opening day fixtures are correct when the Premier League publish their full fixture list at 9am on Thursday.

There is reason to believe both Chelsea and Liverpool will play on Saturday rather than Sunday or Monday on the opening weekend of the season.

That’s because the Champions League and Europa League winners will contest the Uefa Super Cup at Besiktas’ Vodafone Park stadium in Istanbul on Wednesday August 14.

City drew 1-1 away at Wolves last season in one of only two stalemates for Pep Guardiola’s side, and they’ll be keen to get off to a strong start if they do play away at Nuno Espirito Santo’s team.

New Brighton boss Graham Potter potentially faces a daunting start at Manchester United, who have the best opening day record in Premier League history with 18 victories in 27 matches.
