Latest Premier League odds after 2019-20 fixtures released

Sky Sports have saved the best until last on the opening weekend of the Premier League season with Manchester United hosting Chelsea on Sunday, August 11.

United are 13-10 favourites with bet365 to begin with a win, while Betfred rate Chelsea 12-5 to start the 2019-20 campaign with maximum points at Old Trafford.

It will be Chelsea's first match without Eden Hazard, who joined Real Madrid earlier this month, and manager Maurizio Sarri is being strongly linked with a switch to Juventus.

Champions Manchester City are on the Saturday lunchtime TV slot and rated 4-11 shots to win at West Ham. Betfred quote them just 7-4 to claim 15 points from their opening five matches which would see them break their own record of winning 19 consecutive league matches.

After the trip to the London Stadium they host Tottenham and Brighton and have trips to Bournemouth and Norwich.

Pep Guardiola's treble winners, 16-1 with Hills to go through the season unbeaten, are 4-6 to retain the title from 5-2 shots Liverpool.

The Merseysiders kick off the season on the Friday night against Sky Bet Championship winners Norwich and it should be a comfortable 90 minutes for Jurgen Klopp's men.

Liverpool are the shortest-priced Premier League team on the opening coupon at 1-6 with Norwich 28-1 to stun Anfield.

That trip is the first match in a tough start for the Canaries, who also host City and Chelsea in their opening five fixtures.

Aston Villa are 10-1 to triumph at Tottenham on their return to the Premier League in a match which is 4-1 favourite with Hills to be the highest-scoring fixture of week one.

Sheffield United can be backed at 4-1 to beat Bournemouth with all three of the promoted sides on the road in the first week.

Perhaps the most intriguing encounter is Arsenal's trip to Newcastle given the hosts are the subject of takeover talk.

The Magpies are currently 11-4 to beat the Gunners in the Sunday 2pm TV slot which once again falls to Sky Sports.

Sky will also show the Sunday games at 4.30pm, moving back from the previous 4pm slot. They have also won the rights to the eight Saturday 7.45pm matches and the Friday/Monday fixtures, as well as the Saturday 5.30pm position, with BT taking over the 12.30pm games.

BT also have the majority of midweek rounds, apart from the December batch which were snapped up by Amazon Prime. Amazon will show all matches that midweek and all ten on Boxing Day.

Opening round of matches: 1-6 Liverpool, 28 Norwich, 8 draw; 9 West Ham, 4-11 Man City, 11-2 draw; 4-5 Bournemouth, 4 Sheffield Utd, 3 draw; 17-10 Burnley, 2 Southampton, 9-5 Crystal Palace, 7-4 Everton, 5-2 draw; 7-5 Leicester, 21-10 Wolves, 11-5 draw; Evs Watford, 7-2 Brighton, 5-2 draw; 2-5 Tottenham, 10-1 Aston Villa, 11-2 draw; 11-4 Newcastle, 11-10 Arsenal, 5-2 draw; 13-10 Man Utd, 12-5 Chelsea, 12-5 draw.

Japan v Chile

Home WinDrawAway Win
Key stats
  • Chile have lost only one of their last 12 Copa matches
Expert verdict
Japan haven’t performed up to their usual standards in recent internationals and they will need to up their game if they are to compete with two-time defending champions Chile. The Chileans are hard to trust entirely but recent results in friendlies suggest they should have enough to pinch victory.
