The full fixture list has been released ahead of the 2019/20 Premier League campaign, and we’ve picked out some of the key dates for your diary ahead of the new season which kicks off in August.

1. First home game – 11th August
Arsenal are set to be our first opponent of the season on Sunday 11th. Spurs aren’t coming to town this time around, but it’s another top North London side who should represent a tough test.

Our second home game of the season will come 3 weeks after the opening weekend of the season, with us due to face Watford on August 31st.
2. First away game – August 17th
Our first away trip of the season will see us play newly-promoted Norwich at Carrow road – a match that will be their first home game of the campaign following their promotion back to the top flight.
