AFC Bournemouth vs. Manchester United
Jose Mourinho finally has the job he has coveted for a long time. The Special One hasn't wasted any time with the signings of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and free agent Zlatan Ibrahimovich and rumours of a Paul Pogba return on the horizon. Mourinho will most likely look for a pragmatic win, but a win none the less.
Arsenal vs. Liverpool
The Gunners finished in 2nd place last season but will need to sign a big-name striker if they wish to better that as Olivier Giroud just doesn't cut the mustard. Wenger's task won't be made any easier due to the expected revival of Manchester thanks to Guardiola and Mourinho. Meanwhile Jürgen Klopp prepares for his first full season in charge of the Kop and has been signing some key players. As things stand a Liverpool upset isn't out of the question for the opening day.
Fulham vs. Newcastle United

Sheffield Wednesday vs. Aston Villa
Wednesday missed out on promotion the Premier League by a whisker while Villa had an absolute car-crash of a season and left the Premier League in bottom position.

Bolton Wanderers vs. Sheffield United
It's been a roller coaster ride for Bolton fans, after enjoying 17 years in the Premier League they have now been relegated twice and find themselves about to start their first season in League One. On top of that, Wanderers find themselves £172million in debt and faced a transfer embargo earlier this year. Meanwhile, the Blades have been in League One since 2011 and after finishing 11th last season will be looking for a big improvement if they want to get back in the Championship any time soon.
Southend United vs. Gillingham
After winning the League Two playoffs Southend did better than many pundits expected. Not only did they avoid going back down, they finished safely in mid-table. The Shrimpers will miss goalkeeper Daniel Bentley who recently signed for Brentford, but have recently replaced him with Mark Oxley who they hope will fill the void from Bentley quickly. Gillingham and Southend failed to beat each other last season, with matches finishing 1-1 each time, expect a tight affair at Roots Hall on the opening day.
Hartlepool United vs. Colchester United
Hartlepool had a solid season finishing in 16th last season while Colchester toppled into League Two after a disappointing campaign and will be looking to win promotion on the first time of asking.
