Premier League clubs are set to learn their schedules ahead of a season that will be much more normal than the last.

The 2020-21 campaign was condensed having started in September, a month later than usual, due to the coronavirus pandemic prolonging the season into July.

Managers frequently complained of gruelling runs with several matches taking place in a short period of time.

Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Tottenham and Arsenal had to contend with tough fixture lists in three domestic competitions and in Europe.

Next season is likely to be different.

Clubs will soon find out who they play and when.

Fans will be able to see when their club’s biggest matches take place and begin to plan their journeys.

The full fixture list is set to be announced at 9am on Wednesday, June 16.

It will provide clubs an opportunity to plot exactly how their campaigns will play out.

Man Utd boss Solskjaer can begin to plan how he will finally trump rivals Man City at the top of the table.

Liverpool’s Jurgen Klopp will also hope to better challenge the Premier League champions having seen his defence of the league culminate in a disappointing third-place finish.

Thomas Tuchel can use the momentum from his Chelsea side’s Champions League win to propose a route to a first top-flight title since 2017.

Brentford, who are in the Premier League for the first time, will find out when they face enticing fixtures against the top six.

And Man City boss Pep Guardiola will learn how he can win a fourth title in five years.

City won the division by 12 points, with United trailing behind in seconds.

Guardiola believed it was the hardest year to win the Premier League.

“This has been a season and a Premier League title like no other,” the 50-year-old said in May.

“This was the hardest one. We will always remember this season for the way that we won. I am so proud to be the manager here and of this group of players.

“It is relentless. Every single day, they are there, fighting for success, trying always to be better. They have been so, so resilient.

“That is equally true of each and every member of our backroom staff, who have worked tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that our players are fully equipped to take on the unexpected challenges and new routines throughout such a turbulent year.”
