Every Club’s Record On The Opening Day Of The Premier League Season
The 2019/20 Premier League season is finally here and the array of optimism filters across the country ahead of this weekend.
Opening fixtures are always difficult to predict. New signings, new tactics and a new beginning – what teams will gel together the fastest?
Whether your ambition is survival or pushing for the Premier League title, it is a time for every fan to get excited about the new campaign.
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool kickstart the 2019/20 campaign against newly-promoted Norwich City at Anfield and they will be determined to accelerate from the very start.
This season promises to be a thoroughly entertaining spectacle with multiple teams set to contest for a top-six finish; starting the season on a positive note could be the crucial difference between achieving a European spot or mid-table mediocrity.
But what do the stats suggest could happen this weekend? Here is every club’s opening day record in the Premier League from worst to best…
Brighton – W0, D0, L2
The Seagulls narrowly avoided relegation last season and they will be hoping to break their opening day jinx against Watford this weekend.
Brighton have lost both of their opening Premier League match-ups and the closest they came to a result was against Manchester City, but could only hold them off for 70 minutes and lost the match 2-0.
