There’s also a huge Sunday clash to look forward to between rivals straight out of the so-called big six - who certainly didn’t all live up to that tag last season - and an intriguing start to the weekend itself when Arsenal will look to start fast once again.

Rounding off the opening weekend is the first Monday night clash, which takes place at Old Trafford. Clubs will all be looking to start the season in positive fashion, and though not all of them can or will, the first match is still one to mark on the calendar and eagerly count down towards.

Here are the matches for the first round of the season in full:

  • 11/08/2023 20:00 Burnley v Manchester City
  • 12/08/2023 12:30 Arsenal v Nottingham Forest
  • 12/08/2023 15:00 A.F.C. Bournemouth v West Ham United
