Premier League Opening Day

Date: August 13, 2016
Premier League at Rí Rá

The Premier League is finally back after a long summer break. The season starts on August 13th when Champions Leicester walk out against newly promoted Hull. The champions will be without N’Golo Kante after the midfielder sealed a £32m switch to Chelsea. And Kante could make his debut for Antonio Conte’s side in the final fixture of the round when the Italian manager makes his own bow at Stamford Bridge in a north London derby against West Ham.

But the highlight of the weekend looks to be Liverpool’s trip to Arsenal on Sunday afternoon. Jurgen Klopp could hand Sadio Mane a debut in a Reds shirt at the Emirates after a £30m move from Southampton while it will be the first chance for Gunners fans to see Granit Xhaka in competitive action.

And Jose Mourinho’s first fixture as Manchester United boss will see the Red Devils take on Bournemouth at Dean Court, where they were beaten 2-1 under Louis van Gaal last time around.

We will be showing all of the Premier League games lives on the big screen from 7am.
