2010/2011 Premier League fixtures announced

June 17, 2010

The fixtures for the 2010/2011 Premier League season have been announced this morning much to the excitement and anticipation of football fans all across the country. The main focus of attention was who newly promoted Blackpool would draw in their first Premier League match for 39 years. As it goes, it wasn’t that spectacular, as Wigan Athletic have been drawn as the first side to visit Bloomfield Road, the smallest stadium in the League.

Manchester United open their campaign against Championship winners Newcastle United at Old Trafford, whilst Premier League champions Chelsea take on the 3rd of the promoted teams, West Brom at Stamford Bridge. Wolves and Stoke will battle out the first Midlands derby of the season, whilst Aston Villa host West Ham and Birmingham travel to Sunderland in the other matches involving Midlands clubs.

Europa League finalists Fulham welcome Bolton to Craven Cottage, but doubts still remain over whether Roy Hodgson will be the man to lead them out on August 14th, after reports claimed he is in talks with Liverpool over the hotseat at Anfield. Bolton’s Lancashire rivals Blackburn host Everton on the first day, with the Champions League’s newest team Tottenham Hotspur welcoming Manchester City to White Hart Lane.

The most sumptuous tie of the opening round comes at Anfield, where Liverpool will entertain Arsenal.

    Chelsea may be got the best opening, although for the time being its players are not exploding at the world cup, still when they play at Chelsea its party time for them :D
    Liverpool-Arsenal will prove to be a deadly game, as whoever will be in charge at Anfield will have to leave his best impression on the fans while Man Utd-Newcastle could prove to be a tricky one for the Red Devils, as they usually start mediocrely, like the England squad at the World Cup lol…
