The English Premier League is the most followed in the world and considered by many as the most exciting too. And now the wait is over as the action returns to our screens this weekend with some mouth-watering action on which will be live on SS Premier League 223.
The new Premier League campaign league returns seven weeks since the 2019-20 season finished and gets underway tomorrow Saturday 12th September 2020 – with 380 matches over the next eight months.
FA Cup winners Arsenal take on newly-promoted side Fulham who are at home with kickoff at 14:30 EAT marks the start of the 2020-21 campaign.
While on the other side, Champions Liverpool will on the same day, begin their title defense at home to Leeds United – back in England’s top flight for the first time since 2004 – at 19:30 EAT.
Just like how last season ended in July, this season also starts behind closed doors – while all 28 Premier League fixtures in September will be televised live.
The campaign will finish on 23 May 2021, fewer than three weeks before the start of Euro 2020, which has been put back a year until 2021 because of the coronavirus pandemic.
There are four games spread out across the opening day of the season, each kicking off at a different time.
After the London derby at Craven Cottage, Crystal Palace host Southampton at 17:00 EAT before the focus switches to Anfield. Then attention switches to the capital at 80:00 for West Ham’s home match with Newcastle.
On Sunday, newly promoted West Brom are at home to Leicester while Everton and their new signings visit Tottenham.
There are two fixtures on Monday. Sheffield United host Wolves less than five weeks after Nuno Espirito Santo’s side were knocked out of the Europa League quarter-finals – and big-spending Chelsea, who were in Champions League action as recently as 8 August, are at Brighton.
The Burnley-Manchester United and Manchester City-Aston Villa games have been postponed.
Both Manchester clubs have been allowed delayed starts. City was in competitive action as recently as 15 August, when they lost 3-1 to Lyon in the Champions League quarter-finals.
Since bars are not yet open, fans will have to catch the action in the comfort of their homes which will be broadcast live on SS Premier League 223, while Laliga will be on 224. Remember to always maintain SOPs and follow MoH measure as Covid-19 cases keep increasing.
