Premier League fans will be waiting on Thursday morning when the fixtures for the next campaign are announced.

On June 13 the Premier League will release full dates at 09:00 BST – including the opening day of the season, all the big derbies, the Boxing Day fixtures and the matches for the final day.

However, it seems the opening-day matches have already been decided after a picture circulated on social media.

According to the picture,  Tottenham will open the new season with a Saturday lunchtime kick-off against newly-promoted Norwich City. Crystal Palace will play home encounter with London rivals Arsenal and Sheffield United’s visit to Bournemouth.

Elsewhere, London teams Chelsea and West Ham travel to Southampton and Watford respectively while Everton and Newcastle go head-to-head at Goodison Park.

The final game on Saturday will see Liverpool begin their Premier League title charge with a trip to Turf Moor to play a tricky Burnley.

The first Super Sunday of the season, with both games being shown live on Sky Sports, will begin with Aston Villa, who earned promotion via the play-offs, host Leicester City. Then at 4pm, Manchester United , who will look to bounce back after a miserable previous campaign, host Brighton at Old Trafford. The opening-weekend is brought to a close with reigning champions Manchester City going head-to-head with Wolves in front of Sky Sports cameras.
