Premier League announces fixtures for 2021-22 season



The English Premier League has on Wednesday officially announced the fixtures for the 2021-22 season, which kicks on the weekend of August 14.

Champions Manchester City would get their title defence underway at Tottenham Hotspur when the new season kicks off.

It’s a tricky opener to City’s quest for a fourth league title in five years, with Spurs looking to bounce back from an underwhelming 2020/21 campaign.

Chelsea will welcome Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge, Arsenal will be guests to newly promoted Brentford and Leicester City will do battle with Wolves at the King Power stadium.
