Make sure you don't miss a minute of the action as we kick off the new 2020/21 Premier League season

Set your alarms and prepare the coffee machine - the Premier League is back on your screens.

The opening weekend features eight matches, starting with Fulham v Arsenal on Saturday, while champions Liverpool kick off their title defence with a mouthwatering home contest against promoted Leeds United.

Christian Pulisic is in contention for Chelsea as they prepare to get their 2020/21 campaign up and running at Brighton & Hove Albion.

The US playmaker had an impressive maiden Premier League season in 2019/20 and is in contention for Monday's contest after recovering from the hamstring injury he suffered against Arsenal in the FA Cup final.

Here's when and how you can watch each fixture on TV or streaming through NBC Sports.
