Manchester City’s 2020-21 Premier League campaign will kick off on Saturday 19 September with a trip to Wolves.

Of course, the opening game was set to be Aston Villa, who were originally scheduled as opening fixture on Saturday 12 September, has been postponed, to allow extra time to recover.

The first Manchester derby of the season takes place on Saturday 12 December at Old Trafford, with the return match at the Etihad on Saturday 6 March.

Other notable dates include first game v Liverpool is 7 November. On Boxing Day, City face Newcastle United at home, and the first match of 2021 will be away at Chelsea on January 2.

The opening 6 matches do provide some good, bad and very interesting match ups. Starting with Wolves, who always give City a tough game. Moving on to Leicester who are also a formidable opponent. One match circled by many fans, all across the league will be Pep Guardiola v Marcelo Bielsa as the “the crazy one” is home to a visiting City side.

Saturday 12 September - Aston Villa H (Postponed – new date/time tbc)

Saturday 19 September - Wolverhampton Wanderers A

Saturday 26 September - Leicester City H

Saturday 3 October - Leeds United A

Manchester City will look to challenge again for all titles again and hopefully be healthy for a majority of the season.
