Last week the fixture lists for all 20 Premier League clubs were announced, there will, of course, be the inevitable date change with television selections by Sky Sports and BT Sport, whilst for the first time ever some games will also be streamed via Amazon Prime.

The online streaming company have the rights to every game of two game weeks, which means AFC Bournemouth’s trip to Crystal Palace on the week commencing 3rd December and the home game against Arsenal on Boxing Day will be available to watch. But there could yet be tweaks to enable subscribers to watch more games at different times.

Sky Sports have announced their selections for the opening weekend of the Premier League campaign and they have overlooked the Cherries hosting Sheffield United.

However, AFC Bournemouth will not be overlooking their opponents on opening day and will also have their full focus on trying to build a successful campaign in 2019/20.

AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe told the Daily Echo

“…When you look at the Premier League last season, without doubt in my mind it was one of the hardest seasons we have ever faced in the Premier League.

“The standard of the big teams went on again but so did the standard of the other teams.

“We need to make sure we keep the pace. In part, recruitment is going to be very important and, in part, keeping our best players is going to be very important – and, of course, the work we do on the training ground.

“There is a real mix of things we have to get right.

Your say…

Sheffield United have a few decent players like McGoldrick, Norwood, Sharp. They’ll need to sign a lot of players though, as their squad at the moment is quite weak. We’ll see how they look come August.

What they do have is an excellent manager, however, with an ingrained philosophy. If they strengthen well they can easily prosper in this league. – Join the conversation, click here.
