Ahead of the 2019/20 season, we look at the new things to keep an eye out for in the Premier League.
Since its inception in 1992, a total of 241 managers or head coaches have taken charge of a club in the Premier League.
That number will increase to 246 over the opening weekend, with five new managers set to make a debut in the competition.
Four of the five new managers and head coaches are English, with Farke the exception.
It is the joint-highest number of English managers in the Premier League for 11 years, along with the 2014/15 season.
Bruce, Smith and Wilder will all have the honour of managing their boyhood clubs in the Premier League.
There are 10 nationalities among the Premier League's managers.
It puts Germany one behind Portugal's five managers and ahead of Argentina's three.
It would only take Farke 16 matches to take second place for the number of Premier League matches overseen by a German, behind Klopp.
He will face his compatriot on his debut in the competition, as Norwich visit Liverpool on Friday 9 August, while Wilder and Howe meet on the touchline the following day as Sheffield United travel to Vitality Stadium.
