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

Manchester United made an impressive start to the season and will look to continue this in the opening game on Saturday; the early kick off at Swansea.

Having surprisingly beaten champions Chelsea to start the season with a win at Stamford Bridge, Burnley will look to maintain that momentum against a West Brom side who also won on opening day.

Liverpool and Crystal Palace met in the Premier League Asia Trophy in Hong Kong during in the summer, which ended with the Reds winning. After losing his first game in charge, heavily, Eagles boss Frank De Boer will hope for better at Anfield.

An epic seven goal thriller last Friday saw Arsenal open with a win against Leicester and the Gunners will want another at Stoke.

Huddersfield v Newcastle was a Championship meeting last season but it's a Premier League one this time round with the Terriers playing host to the Magpies on Sunday followed by a London derby as Chelsea bid to recover from a disappointing opening defeat against Burnley when travelling to Wembley to face Tottenham.

The first Monday night football will see Manchester City play host to Everton.
