Premier League confirm when Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham will kick-off the 2020/21 season

The Premier League have confirmed the start date of the 2020/21 season for later this year.

England’s top-flight will be entering its 29th season since the Premier League was formed.

The battle for this season’s title look done and dusted, but there are still several important positions to be decided.

The relegation battle looks as tight as ever, with only three points separating second-bottom Watford and 15-place Brighton.

Similarly, in the race for Champions League football, Wolves, Manchester United, Sheffield United and Tottenham Hotspur all have a realistic chance of catching Chelsea, who occupy fourth spot.

Liverpool, of course, are 22 points clear at the top of the table and look destined to secure their first Premier League crown, ending Manchester City’s two-year reign as champions.

Pep Guardiola’s side will be hoping to reinvest in their squad this summer and hit back at the Reds next term.

Fixture for the 2020/21 season will begin on August 8, the Premier League has confirmed.

The 2019/20 season began on Friday, August 9 in 2019 so the 2020/21 start date is in keeping with the competition’s general trend.

With the European Championships underway this summer, some players could have less than a month between the competition’s final, on July 12, and the start of the new Premier League season.
