The Premier League is ready to begin anew following a tight six-week turnaround, with the 2020-21 season set to throw up more than the usual helping of top-flight questions in need of answers.
Can Liverpool retain their throne after winning a first title in 30 years? What lasting impact will the coronavirus pandemic have on England’s elite? Has Marcelo Bielsa got what it takes to keep Leeds United in the first tier following their return to the top?

Frank Lampard’s Chelsea are one team attracting mass attention after spending more than $250 million on transfers this summer. RB Leipzig import Timo Werner is one star raring to start his career at Stamford Bridge and improve upon the 28 goals he bagged in the Bundesliga last term, via Hayters TV:
Manchester City are motivated to make a renewed attempt on the crown this campaign after finishing a distant second to Liverpool in 2019-20. Neither the Citizens nor local rivals Manchester United will be in action during Week 1, with their fixtures postponed following late involvement in European competition.

Alongside Leeds, West Bromwich Albion and Fulham are the other newcomers following promotion from the Championship. Play-off winners Fulham play host to Mike Arteta’s Arsenal in their opening fixture, giving green manager Scott Parker a stiff test of his credentials at the first time of asking.
A total of 380 Premier League matches will be played before the season is scheduled to conclude on May 23, 2021, and the late start means no winter break will take place this time around.
Hirings, firings, goals and VAR controversy will all play a part as “the world’s most entertaining league” returns for another edition, and fuboTV will be there every step of the way.
