Tottenham will play 3 away matches in its first 4 and a single home match at Wembley against newly promoted Fulham. Then, they will open the new stadium on 9/15 against Liverpool.

No doubt. The only better match would have been making Arsenal play the first game at the Spurs new stadium!!!

List of fixtures: https://www.premierleague.com/fixtures

I'll post more about the fixtures in the coming days but the marquee match-up the first weekend will be Manchester City traveling to the Emirates to take on Arsenal. Everton opens traveling to the Wolverhampton Wolves and I gotta say I like the early start that the Toffees have much more than they did last season.

Midfielder Riyad Mahrez going from Leicester City to Manchester City for 60 million pounds, a record for Manchester City.

Huge signing for us. Fantastic player who should thrive under Pep, and helps build depth which will be crucial if we want to repeat as Prem champs and make a serious UCL run.

Chelsea have sacked Antonio Conte, paving the way for Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri to take the helm. Conte had previously refused to leave Stamford Bridge unless the final year of his contract was paid in full.

I知 not sure he値l be in the starting XI (at least at the start of the year). He値l rotate on the wing with Sane and Sterling. I壇 also imagine Bernardo will spend less time on the wing and more time centrally as Silva will likely get rested more often this year.

Helluva sum of money for a backup.
