Premier League 2021/22 fixtures for game week 2: Dates and kick-off times this weekend

Gameweek 2 gives us with Liverpool getting things underway against Burnley in the early Saturday kick-off.

There are four 5pm games as champions Manchester City look to recover from their opening defeat to Tottenham with a home tie against Norwich.

Aston Villa host Newcastle after both sides lost their first matches, Crystal Palace take on Brentford after the Bees’ famous win over Arsenal, and Leeds take on Everton in what could be an enthralling encounter. Brighton and Watford then finish off the action at the Amex Stadium in the evening.

Premier League champions Manchester City begin their 2021/22 season under way at Tottenham Hotspur when the new season kicks off on the weekend of August 14.

Spurs head to Wolves, while Sunday’s late game is a London derby between Arsenal and Chelsea at the Emirates.

We will also have the first Monday night clash as West Ham entertain Leicester City.
