Reaction to Everton's 2019/20 Premier League fixtures

It looks like the 2019/20 Premier League opening day fixtures may have been leaked this morning, as per a report from the Mirror.

We've had a mammoth.

With the futures of David De Gea, Paul Pogba and Romelu Lukaku are all uncertain, United may be in a period of transition when the season gets underway and they have a challenging second game to negotiate as they travel to Wolves for a tough away game.

So, there you have it.

Winning a first league title since 1990 will be the primary aim going into next season, with Liverpool's fixture list now revealed. Their first five games are against West Ham, Tottenham, Bournemouth, Brighton and Norwich.

The season kicks off with the Community Shield match between Liverpool and Manchester City which will take place on August 4, 2019 at Wembley.

The Red Devils have a few tricky fixtures at the start of the season apart from the Chelsea game.

City's run of 14 consecutive wins last season gave Liverpool no room for slip-ups and although the Reds responded with nine successive victories of their own, dropped points earlier on proved costly.

Thanks to City's dominance, Liverpool's Champions League title and Tottenham's fine season, the expectation is that we could be in for an even more competitive campaign, especially with Manchester United and Arsenal looking to rebound, and Chelsea trying to survive Eden Hazard's departure.

Due to policing and logistical reasons, the two East Anglian rivals are paired in the fixture process and are never scheduled to play home games on the same day.

As for Boxing Day, Liverpool head to Leicester City for a meeting with former boss Brendan Rodgers, while newcomers Sheffield United are at Anfield on New Year's Day.

Tottenham open their season at their new stadium against Premier League new-boys Aston Villa.

And the final game of the campaign is set to be against Newcastle on May 17 at St James' Park.
