It’s that time of year, us football fans are craving for the return of the new 2019/20 season to begin, and a ‘leaked’ fixture list for the opening day of the Premier League season has emerged and gone viral.
Various football accounts on Twitter have posted pictures of what they claim to be the fixture list for next season’s opening games. It was also put up on reddit.
Check out those ‘leaked’ fixtures below…
SATURDAY 10TH AUGUST
TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR v NORWICH CITY (12:30pm)
AFC BOURNEMOUTH v SHEFFIELD UNITED (3pm)
CRYSTAL PALACE v ARSENAL (3pm)
EVERTON v NEWCASTLE UNITED (3pm)
SOUTHAMPTON v CHELSEA (3pm)
WATFORD v WEST HAM UNITED (3pm)
BURNLEY v LIVERPOOL (5:30pm)
SUNDAY 11TH AUGUST
ASTON VILLA v LEICESTER CITY (1:30pm)
MANCHESTER UNITED v BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION (4pm)
MONDAY 12TH AUGUST
WOLVES v MANCHESTER CITY (8pm)
The photo of the list also claims Tottenham v Norwich will be shown on Sky Sports and that BT will show the Burnley v Liverpool game, leading fans to dismiss it because BT don’t do the 5:30 slot. The Sunday and Monday matches are also said to be shown on Sky.
That and the fact the tv selections aren’t made until next month…
My main issue with those 'leaked' Premier League opening day fixtures are that they contain different kick-offs for TV times. The TV picks aren't made until mid-July well after the ramifications of who is playing who are looked at.

Fair play if the Twitter account get this right. Many on social media are dubious.
Real or fake? We’ll let you decide.
