Premier League 2020-21: Matchday 1 schedule, fixtures, TV, live streams in Canada

Originally scheduled to begin Aug. 8, the English Premier League's 2020-21 season now kicks off Sept. 12, as 16 of the 20 teams hit the pitch for Matchday 1. Manchester City and Manchester United's match-ups have been postponed following their participation in the Champions League and Europa League, respectively.

The first week features an all-London match-up as Fulham and Arsenal face-off on Saturday morning before defending champion Liverpool meets Leeds United, who are making their Premier League return after 16 years.

Sunday morning, Harry Kane and the Spurs aim to start their 2020-21 campaign off on a good foot as they meet Everton. With a healthy Kane, head coach Jose Mourinho is looking for his club to finish better than last year's sixth-place finish.
