Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool will host Norwich City in the first game of the 2019/20 Premier League campaign.

The Reds were runners up behind Manchester City last season but the newly crowned Champions League winners will fancy their chances of claiming a first English title since 1990.

At the time of writing, Liverpool are priced at 1/10 to get the better of Norwich on Friday 9th August.

An interesting statistic to consider when football betting in 2019/20 – Liverpool won the top-flight title the one and only time they hosted Norwich on the opening weekend of a campaign. Bear that in mind…

Meanwhile, Manchester City will travel down to the London Stadium on August 10th for an afternoon kick-off against West Ham United.

The defending champions are as short as 4/6 to retain the title in 2019/20 and you won’t find many punters backing against City ahead of the opening weekend.

The Blues have won their last seven meetings with West Ham in all competitions and City fans will be hoping to get off their campaign off to the perfect start.

6/25 in Premier League Odds with 888sport is a little short but Guardiola’s men should prove too strong.

Championship winners Norwich have been rewarded with an opening day trip to Anfield but what about the other promoted clubs?

Well, Sheffield United (7/2) will travel down to AFC Bournemouth while Aston Villa visit Tottenham Hotspur. At the time of writing, punters can back the newly promoted treble at an incredible 1100/1!

Looking at Saturday 10th August, we’ve got four more fixtures to look at. Burnley will take on Southampton at Turf Moor while Crystal Palace welcome Everton to Selhurst Park.

Meanwhile, Brendan Rodgers' Leicester City face Wolverhampton Wanderers while 2018/19 FA Cup finalists Watford host Brighton & Hove Albion.

Moving on, Newcastle United have a tough opener with Arsenal at St James’ Park. With the Magpies’ off-field situation up in the air at the moment, Newcastle are available at a decent price for what could be a famous opening weekend Premier League fixture.

13/5 for the Magpies to open with a victory is worth considering given Arsenal’s woes on the road.

Unai Emery’s men were thrashed by Chelsea in the 2018/19 Europa League final and the Gunners will want to finish in the top four this campaign.

888sport punters can back Arsenal at 6/5 in the latest Premier League top four odds and three points in the north east on the opening weekend could set the tone for 2019/20.

Without a doubt, the standout fixture takes place at Old Trafford. Manchester United face Chelsea in one of two televised matches on Sunday 11th August and the Red Devils will be looking to get off to a bright start.

United recorded just seven points from 10 fixtures against ‘Big 6’ clubs in 2018/19 - a repeat of that sort of form could see United miss out on the Champions League for the second year in succession.

The Red Devils are 7/5 to emerge victorious while punters can back Chelsea to claim three points at 2/1. In a game of this size, the draw is worth considering and 47/20 is a good price for an opening weekend stalemate.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's at the wheel but Chelsea are notoriously quick out of the blocks – you won’t want to miss this clash.

Fingers crossed for another exciting Premier League season. With less than two months to wait, English football fans will be eagerly anticipating another close title race, fierce battle to avoid relegation and much more.
