Premier League schedule release day is always a fun time for fans across the world and now you need to find out exactly how to watch Premier League in the USA and what you can look forward to.

Below we take a look at the opening six fixtures for the ‘big six’ in the Premier League, as both Manchester United and Manchester United won’t start their seasons until Sept. 19 due to being allowed 30 days off over the summer as they only just finished their European campaigns in the Champions League and Europa League respectively.

To sum up their first few fixtures for the big boys: Reigning champions Liverpool have been handed a pretty tough start with Leeds on the opening day, then Chelsea, Arsenal and a Merseyside derby with Everton. So too have Man City with Arsenal, Wolves, Leeds and Leicester, while Man United have a slightly easier to schedule to start with which they will have to take advantage off. If Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side don’t win the majority of their first six, they will be under pressure.

Chelsea have two big games against Liverpool and Manchester United but will be favored in their other four, while Tottenham look to have the easiest first six games from the big six as Jose Mourinho will be hoping his players stay fit and they can build from a positive finish to the 2019-20 season. As for Arsenal, well, Mikel Arteta’s side will soon play Liverpool in the FA Community Shield at Wembley and they will play the Reds, Manchester City and Leicester City among their first six games. Ouch.
