The New Boys
Aston Villa will open their first season in the Premier League since 2015/16 with their first trip to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The festive period sees them play Southampton and Norwich at home before trips to Watford and Burnley and they close the campaign away at West Ham.
Norwich, whose last top-flight campaign was also 2015/16, will open away at Liverpool on Friday night – the last game between those two sides was the Reds’ stunning 5-4 win at Carrow Road in a true Premier League classic. A favourable Christmas list of three home games sees the Canaries host Wolverhampton Wanderers, Spurs and Crystal Palace, with a tough visit to Manchester United in the middle, and they finish the season away at Manchester City.
Finally, Sheffield United are playing their first Premier League season since a single campaign in 2006/07. Their first game back in the division is a trip to Bournemouth before they start the festivities back on the south coast at Brighton & Hove Albion. They then host Watford before two daunting visits to Manchester City and Liverpool respectively.
