Sky has revealed the Premier League fixtures that it will be showing during the opening weeks of the new season.
Its televised schedule kicks off with Arsenal hosting Leicester City on August 11th - the first time the season has begun on a Friday night.
The fixture gives Gunners fans their first opportunity to see record signing Alexandre Lacazette in action, and is swiftly followed by another potential title contender Liverpool, who are away to Watford in August 12th's lunchtime kickoff.
All of the teams to finish inside the top six last season - Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester City, Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United - will be televised on Sky Sports in the first two weeks of the season, and Head of Football at the broadcaster Gary Hughes said a Friday evening game "is an exciting way to kick things off".
"In the opening seven weeks Sky Sports will show every club, four of the early head-to-heads and get to 18 grounds – we can’t wait for the season to start," he added.
Other highlights of the opening weeks of fixtures include Tottenham's first game at their temporary home Wembley, where they face a stern test in the shape of champions Chelsea on August 20th.
Premier League newcomers Huddersfield Town will be also be in front of the cameras for their first game of the season, when they host Newcastle on the same day.
Sky Sports customers will be able to watch the games on Sky's new, revamped sports packages, which could see them paying less if they are only interested in watching Premier League football.
