Aston Villa fixtures: Premier League 2020/21

Villa's opening game postponed; Sheffield United at home kicks them off, followed by Fulham away

Aston Villa

Aston Villa will kick off their Premier League season a week late at home to Sheffield United on September 19 after their opening-day game with Man City was postponed.

Villa were due to play Manchester City at the Etihad on the weekend of September 12, but that game will be played at a later date (TBC) due to City's participation in the latter stages of the Champions League in August.

Dean Smith's Villa, who survived on the last day of the 2019/20 season, host Sheffield United on the weekend of September 19, before going to newly-promoted Fulham on the weekend of September 26.

Next up is a clash with champions Liverpool at Villa Park on October 3, before going to Leicester on October 17 following an international break.

Around a busy winter schedule, Villa host Crystal Palace on Boxing Day, then go to Chelsea on December 28, and then up to Old Trafford to face Manchester United on January 2. They finish the season at home to Chelsea on May 23.
