BURNLEY face an opening repeat as they start their 2019/20 Premier League campaign against Southampton at Turf Moor on Saturday, August 10.

Sean Dyche’s men made the trip down to the south coast on the opening day last season where they played out a goalless draw against the Saints - who were then managed by Mark Hughes.

That point came between two legs of a Europa League tie against Istanbul Basaksehir - something the Clarets won’t have to contend with next season.

Burnley’s toughest spell of the season looks to be in December where they will face both Manchester clubs and last season’s Champions League runners-up Tottenham Hotspur

In the start of a tough trio of games, Burnley start their away campaign in North London against Europa League finalists Arsenal.

The Clarets visited the Emirates in December last season and came away 3-1 losers.

A trip to Molineux is next in line for Burnley - who lost 1-0 at the home of the Europa League side last September thanks to a goal from Raul Jimenez.

Before the first international break, Jurgen Klopp’s European Champions visit Turf Moor on Saturday, August 31.

The Reds won 3-1 in the same fixture last December with Dyche’s side taking the lead in the game.

Following the international break, the Clarets will be looking to get some more points on the board as they travel to Brighton and Hove Albion, where they won 3-1 last season.

Last season’s Championship winners, Norwich City, are the first of the newly-promoted sides to play Dyche’s men as they visit Turf Moor on Saturday, September 21.

The last league meeting between these two clubs came in February 2011 where the Clarets won 2-1 at home.

Aston Villa will be the club hosting Dyche’s men the following week - Burnley won their last match at Villa Park 1-0 in May 2015.

The first weekend in October begins with Marco Silva’s Everton coming to East Lancashire, the Clarets slipped in to the bottom three after this game last season as Everton won 5-1.

Europa League champions Chelsea are October’s last side to come to Turf Moor - the Blues came away with a 4-0 win in October last year.

Dyche’s men have a daunting fixture list over the Christmas period, beginning with Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City at Turf Moor on Tuesday, December 3.

The Champions played out a nervy 1-0 win in this game last season, on their way to back-to-back titles.

Four days later, Clarets fans will be making their first visit to the impressive Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Burnley played Spurs at Wembley in December last season and were beaten by a last minute Christian Eriksen goal.

Burnley’s early Christmas present is a trip to the south coast as they will hope for a repeat of last seasons 3-1 victory over former boss Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth.

Boxing Day sees a repeat of last year as the Clarets take on Everton - the difference this time is it will be at Goodison Park.

Two days later, Manchester United will be coming to East Lancashire.

Burnley’s first game of 2020 is a home match against Aston Villa on New Year’s Day - followed by an FA Cup third round tie three days later.

Next up in the Premier League is a trip to Stamford Bridge, where Burnley have drawn 2-2 and won 3-2 in their last two visits.

A midweek game away at Manchester United is in store for Dyche and his team, three days after they host Brendan Rodgers’ Leicester City on Saturday, January 18.

Dyche will be looking for a repeat of last season’s home win over Tottenham when Mauricio Pochettino brings Harry Kane and company up north.

This is the start of back-to-back tough games for Burnley as a week later, they take the short trip to the Etihad Stadium to take on Manchester City.

After the final international break of the season, it is a match away at Crystal Palace for Burnley. Goals from James McArthur and Andros Townsend gave Roy Hodgson’s men the three points back in December.

Two weeks later, it’s a return to the London Stadium to take on West Ham - the same match last season ended in a 4-2 defeat for the Clarets despite levelling proceedings twice.

The end of April sees Burnley travelling to the red side of Merseyside as they face Liverpool - the Clarets are yet to register a win at Anfield in the Premier League era.

Burnley’s penultimate home game of the season is against Wolves - the Clarets beat the West Midland club 2-0 at the end of March last season.

A long trip to Norwich is the final away day of the season - Burnley haven’t played at Vicarage Road since a 4-1 defeat in the third round of the FA Cup in January 2012.

Finally, Burnley’s last game of the season, on Saturday, May 23, is a clash against Brighton.

James Tarkowski scored the only goal in this game last season to hand the Clarets a vital three points.
