The Premier League schedule for the 2019/2020 season has just been officially announced. Notably, the opening day of the new season in the mist will see the confrontation between the two greatest teams in England: Manchester United and Chelsea.
Specifically, coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team will encounter Chelsea at 22:30 on Sunday 11 August. This is the most remarkable match in the first round. At the first full season with MU, Solskjaer had to face a very difficult challenge even though his opponent Chelsea no longer had Eden Hazard and could not sign any new player in this summer.
Currently, the transfer of MU still makes fans worried. There are no truly outstanding faces who landed Old Trafford to join the Red Devils to carry out the revolution of human resources.
Meanwhile, the opening match will take place between Liverpool and rookie Norwich City on 2:00 am on Saturday 10 August. Both Arsenal, Tottenham, and Manchester City promise a smooth start when they encounter opponents who are easy to breathe.
However, the joy of Champions League side Tottenham is only stopped in the first round. The first 4 matches, Tottenham will have to face both Man City and Arsenal – very heavy opponents.
Meanwhile, Man City has a relatively favorable schedule. The first 6 rounds, Pep Guardiola’s team only have to meet West Ham, Tottenham, AFC Bournemouth, Brighton & Hove Albion, Norwich City and Watford. The difficulty came only in November when Man City had to meet Chelsea and MU in a row.
Chelsea, the third team last season, will fight without Hazard in the squad. After a trip to Manchester United in the first round, Chelsea will host Leicester City on home soil before meeting two rookies Norwich and Sheffield United.
