Champion City to visit Spurs in EPL opener

English Premier League champion Manchester City will start the defense of its title away to Tottenham Hotspur after the fixtures for the 2021-22 season were unveiled yesterday.

City is among the sides heavily linked with Spurs striker Harry Kane, throwing up the tantalizing possibility that the England captain could line up against his boyhood club on the opening weekend. Pep Guardiola’s side won the league by 12 points last season ahead of rival Manchester United, which opens its campaign against old foe Leeds United at Old Trafford. Elsewhere on the weekend of August 14, new boys Brentford begin life back in the top flight for the first time in 75 years with a London derby at home to Arsenal, while Championship winner Norwich City entertains Liverpool on its return to the EPL. Champions League winner Chelsea welcomes managerless Crystal Palace to Stamford Bridge
