LONDON, Sporting Alert — English Premier League fixtures and game times for the opening week on Friday, August 11 to Sunday, August 13.
Arsenal opened their season with a thrilling late 4-3 victory over Leicester City at the Emirate Stadium to go top of the Premier League standings before the remaining teams in the league kick-off.
Defending champion Chelsea start the defense of their league title against Burnley at Stamford Bridge. Game time for this one is 10:00 am ET and live coverage will be on NBCSN and streaming also on NBC Sports Live online and on the app. TalkSport Radio World will also provide live audio commentary.
