In the first batch of Sunday games, Liverpool take on West Ham and Arsenal host reigning champions Manchester City — both of which will be shown on Sky Sports — while Southampton’s home game against Burnley has been pushed back to that date due to the Clarets’ possible involvement in a Europa League game three days earlier.

Liverpool’s trip to Crystal Palace will be the first Monday night game of the campaign on August 20th, with Manchester United’s home contest against Tottenham following seven days later.
