Manchester City and Liverpool look set to go head-to-head for the 2019-20 Premier League title once again after last season's titanic tussle.

City edged out Liverpool to defend their crown after winning 14 Premier League games in a row in a stunning run of form from February.

Liverpool only lost once in the league all season - away to City in early January - but finished a point behind Pep Guardiola's side.

Winning the Champions League by beating Tottenham in the final ensured the Reds had something to show for their efforts, though.

City and Liverpool will be expected to do battle for the league again, with Chelsea sitting a whopping 25 points back in third last season.

So where will the 2019-20 Premier League title be won and lost? After the release of the full fixture list, Omnisport takes a look.

OPENING FIXTURES

Liverpool have a chance to strike the first blow as they kick off the 2019-20 season at home to newly promoted Norwich City.

Guardiola's men open their campaign the following day at West Ham before hosting Tottenham in their first home game.

The Reds play Arsenal at home and Chelsea away in their first six fixtures, meaning Jurgen Klopp's side must be in top form from the off.

City's opening six games include a repeat of the FA Cup final against Watford, who they thrashed 6-0 at Wembley, as well as games against Bournemouth and Brighton and Hove Albion.

CRUNCH CLASHES

City and Liverpool are not scheduled to meet until November, which will give both teams a chance to find their Premier League rhythm.

The 2019 – 20 Premier League will be the 28th season of the Premier League , the top English professional league for association football clubs, since its establishment in 1992.

The 2019 / 20 fixtures will be released at 09:00 BST on Thursday 13 June with the promise of more goals after a season that produced a record tally of 1,072. That was partly due to Arsenal’s 4-3 win over Leicester City, the joint-highest scoring Matchweek 1 fixture in Premier League history.

Like last season, Liverpool are at home in the first of their two meetings with the defending champions, hosting City on November 9.

City drew 0-0 at Anfield last term - Riyad Mahrez fluffing a late penalty - and their 2-1 defeat of the Reds after the turn of the year proved a key result.

This time around Liverpool will not go to City until early April, kicking off a race to the finish line. That game already looks like a potential title decider.

DERBY DAYS

City's run of 14 consecutive wins last season gave Liverpool no room for slip-ups and although the Reds responded with nine successive victories of their own, dropped points earlier on proved costly.

Liverpool were held to a 0-0 draw by rivals Everton on March 3 and the Merseyside derby could again be a key moment in the title race, with Goodison Park hosting the game on March 14 next year. They play at Anfield in early December.

Chelsea's Premier League fixtures - what are the key games? Chelsea’s fixture list has been released in full and despite the confusion about who will be in the dugout next season, supporters now know how their season will pan out. As reported by the Daily Mail, Chelsea start the season away at Manchester United in what is the standout fixture of the opening round of games. Chelsea fans will remember the last time that they started the season against United, back in 2004 under Jose Mourinho where they want on to win the league. Could history repeat itself? Despite that, it’s a flattering opening month for the Blues, with games against newly-promoted duo Norwich and Sheffield United.

The winner of last season’s Fantasy Premier League , Adam Levy, is not the only one with a title to defend in 2019 / 20 . Price hikes for popular 2018/19 picks Raul Jimenez, Ryan Fraser and Callum Wilson will be further factors to consider. Starting at £5.5m last term, Jimenez ended at £6.9m off the

The Reds also crucially failed to win at Old Trafford, again playing out a 0-0 draw against Manchester United, and clashes between those two rivals will rightly be highlighted once more.

Liverpool host United - set for a rebuild under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer - on January 18 having made the trip to Old Trafford in October this year.

City won the Manchester derby both home and away last term with this season's game against United at the Etihad Stadium set for December 7 while the return is slated for early March.

FESTIVE FIXTURES

Christmas is when City's challenge threatened to come unstuck last season as Guardiola's men suffered shock defeats in consecutive matches, at home to Crystal Palace and away to Leicester City, following a loss to Chelsea earlier in November.

This term sees City away to Wolves on Boxing Day, with Nuno Espirito Santo's side having thrived in games against the 'Big Six' last term, before hosting newly promoted Sheffield United and Everton in their other Christmas clashes.

Liverpool won nine games in a row before losing to City on January 3 last year, so Klopp will be seeking a similar return from their festive schedule this time out.

The Reds go to Leicester City on Boxing Day before a home double-header against Wolves and Sheffield United ahead of the FA Cup third round in early January.

THE RUN-IN

City's toughest runs of games appear to be in November and March, while Liverpool face two of their top-six rivals in their last three games of the Premier League season.

Their May fixtures start with a trip to Arsenal before Chelsea come to Anfield, with Klopp's side wrapping up their campaign with a visit to Newcastle United.

City are at home on the final day, with Norwich City heading to the Etihad Stadium, and prior to that game they face Southampton, Newcastle United, Brighton, Bournemouth and Watford in a seemingly kind sequence.

Champions League commitments could complicate matters further for both City and Liverpool in 2019-20, but the title race might well go to the wire for the second season in a row.

West Ham's opening day fixture leaked online.
The Premier League fixtures for the 2019/20 campaign were due to be released tomorrow, however, the first weekend of fixtures have been leaked a day early after a picture started circulating online. According to the picture, which was published on the Mirror, West Ham’s first fixture is against Watford away from home. As things stand, this image is unverified and the games could change. The two teams finished 10th (West Ham) and 11th (Watford) in their previous season in the Premier League and therefore, this first fixture could be quite an exciting game.
