The opening day fixtures of the Premier League appear to have been leaked, with Brighton & Hove Albion apparently facing a tough test to start the 2019/20 campaign.

We're used to football team kits and even transfers being leaked in advance via social media, and it appears that now not even the fixture list is safe, with the opening day fixtures of the 2019/20 season appearing online.

The Scottish Sun have published a picture showing all the opening weekend fixtures, along with details of which matches will be televised. The information is as follows:

Saturday:

Tottenham v Norwich, 12.30pm (Sky Sports)

Crystal Palace v Arsenal, 3pm

Everton v Newcastle, 3pm

Southampton v Chelsea, 3pm

Watford v West Ham, 3pm

Burnley v Liverpool, 5.30pm (BT Sport)

Sunday:

Aston Villa v Leicester City, 1.30pm (Sky Sports)

Manchester United v Brighton, 4.00pm (Sky Sports)

Monday:

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Manchester City, 8.00pm (Sky Sports)

It is, of course, worth noting that it could merely be a hoax, and we'll have to wait until Thursday to see whether there's any real truth behind the leak.
