After a summer of speculation, pre-season preparation and transfer tugs-of-war, the Premier League is back.

All eyes will be on Anfield tonight, when Liverpool kick-off the 2019/20 Premier League season against newly-promoted Norwich in front of their adoring fans, for Liverpool, a fast start is crucial, so nothing but a win is required tonight at  Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp and his men got a close-up look at defending champions Manchester City last weekend in the Community Shield. They saw a Pep Guardiola side ready to go again. Ready to surpass the remarkable heights they have achieved in the past two seasons.

But Liverpool showed they are ready, too. Their pre-season was far from ideal, but Liverpool's display at Wembley suggested they are set to go toe-to-toe again with City once more.

Last season, during the thrilling title battle between the two teams, every match, every point proved critical.
That is the message Klopp will be giving his players ahead of kick-off tonight; start with intensity, win in style, lay down a marker.

City will then have to respond away to West Ham on Saturday lunchtime.

Tottenham face Aston Villa on Saturday evening at 5.30pm, while Arsenal travel to Newcastle on Sunday afternoon at 2pm. Both London clubs will want to show they cannot be underrated when it comes to the title race this reason.

Then comes the first big match of the season, Manchester United and Chelsea showdown at Old Trafford at 4.30pm.Ole Gunnar Solskjaer against Frank Lampard. The first 'big clash of the season. Two clubs eager to enter a new era in a grand style.

It will be an intriguing, exhilarating ending to this eagerly-anticipated opening weekend. But it is just the start.

Norwich, Sheffield United and Aston Villa arrive with hopes and dreams; the likes of Wolves, West Ham, Leicester and Everton harbour ambitions of breaking into the top six, but whether all this ambitions will be attained is a story we will all tell at the end of the season.
 
There will be new faces, new stars to admire. And old ones at new clubs, aiming to prove their worth. Exciting young players will emerge too.
 
The Video Assitant Refree (VAR) will add tension and no doubt spark debate. But the brilliant skills, passion and power of the players in the world's most exciting league will dominate the headlines.

The Premier League is back. Lets enjoy the ride.
