We’re barely a week into the 2016 European Championships and already excitement is building for the next bout of Premier League football that awaits us in August.
The fixtures have just been announced, giving us a valid reason to get giddy over the prospect of Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City vs Jose Mourninho’s Manchester United, the title defence of plucky underfoxes Leicester, and many other sentences we didn’t think we’d be writing this time last year.
When the action kicks off on 13 August, reigning champs Leicester will start their title defence away at Hull City, new Chelsea boss Antonio Conte will run the rule over his side at home to West Ham, while the glamour tie on opening day is Arsenal at home to Liverpool.
