Last Updated: 07/07/16 2:37pm
As the first set of live Premier League fixtures on Sky Sports are announced, we look at the six big fixtures you can't afford to miss.
From Jose Mourinho's first Premier League match in the Manchester United dugout, to West Ham's opening domestic game at the Olympic Stadium, Sky Sports will feature all 20 sides at least once by the end of September.
Antonio Conte's first game in charge of Chelsea will also be live on Sky Sports, as well as the Manchester derby and champions Leicester's trip to Old Trafford.
With 126 live games throughout the 2016/17 season, Sky Sports offers more matches than ever before and the best viewing experience of the Premier League.
Your full Sky Sports fixture list is here, and we've picked out six of the best below...
Bournemouth v Manchester United - Sunday, August 14 (1.30pm)
One of the low points of Louis van Gaal's two-year tenure at United was the 2-1 defeat at the Vitality Stadium last December, and the hosts' support will be looking for an even bigger upset on the opening weekend of the season.
Mourinho, whose Chelsea side were also beaten by Eddie Howe's Bournemouth last term, will be taking his seat in a Premier League dugout as United manager for the first time, looking to kick off their bid for a first title since 2013 in winning fashion.
New signings Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Eric Bailly and Henrikh Mkhitaryan could be on show for United, and after Mourinho's entertaining first press conference on Tuesday, the build-up and post-match analysis will be a must-watch.
Chelsea v West Ham - Monday, August 15 (8pm)
The first Monday Night Football of the season sees Conte take his bow in the Stamford Bridge dugout, and straight into the cauldron of a London derby with West Ham.
Chelsea will be desperate for a quick start with no European distractions following a 10th-place finish last term, while West Ham will be looking for an improvement on seventh in their first season at the Olympic Stadium.
New Chelsea signing Michy Batshuayi should be on show at the Bridge, while Dimitri Payet could feature for Slaven Bilic's side following a superb Euro 2016 so far.
West Ham v Bournemouth - Sunday, August 21 (4pm)
From the Bridge, West Ham go to their new home, the 60,000-seater Olympic Stadium, hosting Bournemouth first up.
The Hammers faithful will be in party mode once again as they take their Premier League bow in Stratford, following their famous 3-2 win over Manchester United in their last game at Upton Park in May.
But Bournemouth will be keen to ruin the occasion once more after their opening-day fixture with Manchester United.
Manchester United v Manchester City - Saturday, September 10 (12.30pm)
Mourinho's first taste of a Manchester derby will also be Pep Guardiola's, pairing up an old rivalry that entertained La Liga fans for three years.
Pep's record against Manchester United on the big occasion is superb, winning three and drawing one of his four games against them with Barcelona and Bayern Munich, including Champions League final victories in 2009 and 2011.
Against Mourinho it is impressive still, winning eight and losing just three of their 16 meetings.
Guardiola's City are aiming for the title again after a muted end to Manuel Pellegrini's tenure, and it will no doubt be a raucous atmosphere at Old Trafford as arguably two of the world's most renowned managers do battle in Manchester.
Chelsea v Liverpool - Friday, September 16 (8pm)
Friday night football comes to our screens for the 2016/17 season on Sky Sports, with heavyweights Chelsea and Liverpool clashing for a perfect start to the footballing weekend.
Jurgen Klopp's side will be looking for a repeat of last season's fixture, which saw them win 3-1 at Stamford Bridge in one of the German's first fixtures in charge.
Conte will be four Premier League games into his time at Chelsea, and after failing to fully recover from slow starts last season, both side's will be looking to stamp their mark fast.
Manchester United v Leicester - Saturday, September 24 (12.30pm)
The champions will be five games into their defence of the Premier League title by the time they reach Old Trafford, and it won't be an easy start for Claudio Ranieri's men.
They host Arsenal, live on Sky Sports, and also go to Liverpool in their opening four games, before a trip up north.
Leicester won an unprecedented first league title by 10 points last season, and all eyes will be on them in the early stages of the campaign, particularly to see how their Champions League participation will impact their bid.
