West Ham start at Old Trafford

West Ham United kick off the new season at Old Trafford in the first weekend of fixtures, and then will be on the road again as work continues to convert the London Stadium back to a football ground after the world athletics.

A home game against Southampton is listed for Saturday August 19 but that will be rescheduled.

We’re off to Newcastle on August 26.

Fancy a Boxing Day road trip? Bournemouth away.

April looks like providing a tough run-in, with fixtures agains Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester City.

There are no easy matches in the Premier League, of course, but September sees opportunities to lay firm foundations for a solid season, with matches against Huddersfield, West Bromwich Albion, Tottenham Hotspur and Swansea City. 

January looks like another crucial phase, with matches against West Bromwich Albion, Huddersfield Town, AFC Bournemouth and Crystal Palace.

The season concludes with what could be a Premier League title-decider at home to Everton on Sunday, May 13. OK, so maybe only part of that statement is true.
