Match Of The Day Returns for The New Season
Match Of The Day returns for the new season as Gary Lineker introduces highlights from the day’s seven fixtures on the Premier League’s opening weekend, as well as Friday night’s curtain raiser between Arsenal and Leicester.
Jurgen Klopp will be expecting his Liverpool side to make a winning start as they travel to Watford in Saturday’s early game. The Reds won at Vicarage Road last season thanks to a stunning overhead kick by Emre Can, which was voted Match Of The Day’s Goal of the Season.
Champions Chelsea will be looking for a repeat of last season’s 3-0 home win over Burnley, while Brighton and Hove Albion face a tough start to life in the Premier League as they take on Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.
Elsewhere newly promoted Huddersfield travel to Crystal Palace, Everton face Stoke, Southampton host Swansea and West Brom take on Bournemouth.
