Four new managers to the Premier League will have been eagerly awaiting the release of the 2019/20 fixtures.
Daniel Farke, Chris Wilder, Dean Smith and Graham Potter will all hope to begin their PL careers in style as they take charge of Norwich City, Sheffield United, Aston Villa and Brighton & Hove Albion respectively.
These two men are responsible for the biggest wins for a manager on debut in Matchweek 1 of a Premier League campaign.
Allardyce's Bolton Wanderers defeated Leicester City 5-0 on the opening day of the 2001/02 campaign while Laudrup, in charge of Swansea City, had the same scoreline against Queens Park Rangers in 2012.

Sarri was the only debutant to oversee a victory. His side won 3-0 at Huddersfield Town, while Wolves drew 2-2 with Everton and both Arsenal and Fulham lost 2-0 to Manchester City and Crystal Palace respectively.
In fact, there will be two more managers aiming to emulate Allardyce and Laudrup in their first Matchweek 1 fixture.
Hasenhuttl made his PL bow in December of last year and will target a victory at Burnley in his first opening-weekend match.
Success at Turf Moor would also give traditional Matchweek 1 strugglers Southampton only a third win in 21 outings.
He will get his chance on Sunday 11 August but faces a tricky test against Chelsea at Old Trafford.
