Football: Barclays Premier League 2011/12 Opening Day Fixtures, Saturday 13 August 2011

The Barclays Premier League returns on the afternoon of Saturday 13th August 2011, when 12 teams will attempt to get their season off to the best possible start with a win.

There had been seven matches scheduled to take place on the opening Saturday, however, following a week of rioting in England, much of which took place in the Tottenham area of London, the decision has been taken to postpone the Tottenham Hotspur v Everton match.

Newly promoted sides, QPR and Norwich are both in action on the opening day: QPR face Bolton Wanderers at home, while Norwich have a tricky fixture away at Wigan’s JJB Stadium.

Perhaps the most exciting prospect is that of Newcastle United v Arsenal, which is the day’s late fixture, kicking off at 17:30 BST at St James Park.

The other three fixtures all feature teams which, on last season’s evidence, might expect to finish within a place or two of each other: Blackburn v Wolverhampton, Fulham v Aston Villa and Liverpool v Sunderland are all matches which might turn out to be very important come the seasons end.
