Premier League champions “Liverpool” will face newly-promoted “Leeds United” on the opening weekend of the 2020/21 season but both “Manchester City” and “Manchester United” will sit out the first round of fixtures due to involvement in the Champions League.
It’s a mouth-watering start to life back in the top flight for Marcelo Bielsa’s Championship winners “Leeds”, with their trip to Anfield on Saturday, September 12, while fellow Premier League new boys “Fulham” host “Arsenal” in an opening weekend London derby and “West Brom” take on “Leicester City” at the Hawthorns.
However, Manchester City (vs) Aston Villa and Burnley (vs) Manchester United have been postponed to allow City and United extra time to recover from their recent European campaigns, which finished last weekend, just four weeks before the 2020/21 Premier League season begins.
Instead, Manchester City’s first game will be at Wolves on September 19, while Manchester United play Crystal Palace at Old Trafford on that same weekend.
