It has been just over three months since Antonio Conte completed Chelsea’s turnaround from finishing 10th in the 2015/16 campaign to be crowned champions in the 2016/17 season and now Premier League is back again for its 25th edition.
With transfer records getting shattered, and some headline breaking signings done, the new season of the coveted league is set to begin as Community Shield winners Arsenal face off former champions Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium.
Last season, Arsenal had the upper hand over Leicester in both the matches. At the King Power stadium, the tie resulted in a draw and at the Emirates, Arsenal won 1-0.
The pressure is once again on Arsene Wenger as his team will look to build momentum right from game one. Arsenal will enjoy the home advantage but things can turn upside down against a tricky opposition like Leicester.
Elsewhere, defending champions Chelsea will be hosting Burnley in their opening match. Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City will be traveling to Falmer Stadium to take on Brighton and Hove Albion, who are making their debut in top flight English football.
Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool will travel to Watford to play their first match of the season on Saturday while Manchester United will take on West Ham United at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Premier League is once again ready to capture the imagination of millions around the world.
