The Premier League TV schedule has been set for the start of the 2019-2020 season, kicking off on a Friday, 9th August 2019. The first match of the season will be Liverpool v Norwich City, and on Saturday, last year’s champions, Manchester City, will be taking on West Ham United.
Man City will be hoping to hold onto their title and claim their third consecutive Premier League win, with Liverpool — fresh from their Champions League victory — keen to dethrone them. And with Manchester United in turmoil at the start of the season and Chelsea potentially managerless, there’s sure to be plenty of excitement coming to our screens on 9th August.

Where can I watch Premier League fixtures on TV?
Although Sky Sports and BT Sport have long been the home for football, there’s a third outlet to look out for this year: Amazon Prime. Sky Sports will still air the lion’s share of matches, but both BT Sport and newcomers Amazon Prime are set to broadcast and stream several key games live throughout 2019 and into 2020.
This means that in order to watch all the televised Premier League fixtures on TV live, you’ll need access to more than one sports channel.

August Premier League fixtures (on Sky Sports and BT Sport)
Liverpool vs Norwich kick off the season on the 9th. Can Liverpool finally get that coveted league title that's alluded them for 17 years, while newcomers Norwich will be hoping just to survive. Man U vs Chelsea finish the weekend of football, both of whom are going for top 4 in the league to get European qualification.
Chelsea have a new manager in the form of legend Frank Lampard, who played over 420 games for the team across a 14-year career. Can he push them to glory? While Manchester United, having missed out on Champions League, will be looking to put that right.
Newcomers Norwich City, Aston Villa and Sheffield United will be hoping to get some early points on the board if they are to avoid relegation in their first season back in the Premier League.
Another notable game in August will be Wolves vs Man U. Wolves had a fantastic season last year having only just been promoted, can they do it again and reach European qualification again? We'll have to watch and see. Full August fixtures below.
