What will happen? Cast your vote so we know if you think it'll be all smiles or disappointment come the full time whistle.

The new season gets underway on Friday evening when Arsenal welcome Leicester to the Emirates Stadium as both boss' look for much improved campaigns.

Liverpool's bid to challenge for the Premier League title - they are fancied by some to do so - gets underway in the early kick off on Saturday when heading to Vicarage Road to take on Watford.

Champions Chelsea's bid to retain their title won under Antonio Conte at the first attempt gets underway when the Blues welcome Burnley to Stamford Bridge, who could again be a strong candidate to face a relegation battle.

Huddersfield and Brighton's - survival will be viewed as a bonus - first games in the Premier League will see Town entertain Frank De Boer's Crystal Palace, the Dutchman's first game in charge of the Eagles, whereas Albion entertain Manchester City at the Amex Stadium.

Sunday will see a couple of games, including Newcastle's return to the topflight bringing last season's runners up Tottenham travel to St James' Park.
