Manchester City and Manchester United won’t feature in the opening matchweek due to their extended participation in the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League, respectively, last season.

Defending champions Liverpool will open their campaign by hosting the newly promoted Leeds United. Watch live streaming of Liverpool vs Leeds.
