English Premier League (EPL) fans have everything to smile about as the top league is back tonight when Arsenal visit Crystal palace this Friday for the opening match.

Mikel Arteta’s charges will be looking for a quick start having done well in pre-season and the new faces added this summer they look favourites to smash Palace.

Gabriel Jesus is expected to lead the front line after arsenal managed to convince the Brazilian to join them from Man City this summer.

Meanwhile, Liverpool will once again kick off another Premier League season against a newly-promoted side, Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday.

Newcastle will host Nottingham Forest at 5pm, same time whereby Aston villa face Bournemouth, Leeds united will battle against Wolves as well as Tottenham who will be at home stadium against Southampton

Chelsea will end the second day of the league when they travel to Goodison Park to taste their former head coach Frank Lampard’s side Everton.

On Sunday, Leicester city who are yet to make any signing this summer will open the third day against Brentford at King Power stadium while Eric Ten Hag will await his warm welcome at Old Trafford when they host Brighton.

Manchester city will start defending their title away from the Etihad as they visit West Ham at London stadium. Pep Guardiola’s side and Liverpool are still the favorites for this campaign but Antonio Conte’s transfer market makes him a serious challenger for the two sides as well as Chelsea who finished third last season.
