Arsenal åpner mot Rooney

Arsenals storscorer Thierry Henry møter Evertons stjerneskudd Wayne Rooney på bortebane når Premier League starter igjen 14. august.

(Dagbladet.no): Foruten Everton-Arsenal ser første ligarunde slik ut:

Chelsea-Manchester United, Tottenham-Liverpool, Aston Villa-Southampton, Blackburn-West Bromwich, Bolton-Charlton, Manchester City-Fulham, Middlesbrough-Newcastle, Norwich-Crystal Palace og Portsmouth-Birmingham.

Arsenal var ubeseiret forrige sesong, og jakter rekorden til Nottingham Forest på 42 kamper uten tap satt i perioden november 1977 til desember 1978. Gunners har nå 40 kamper uten tap, og setter ny rekord hvis laget unngår tap i de tre første ligarundene mot Everton borte 14. august, Middlesbrough hjemme 21. august og Blackburn hjemme 24. august.

Ingen påskekamper

Norwich, West Bromwich og Crystal Palace er nyopprykket i Premier League, som for første gang blir uten påskekamper grunnet VM-kvalifiseringen.

Minimum to av lørdagskampene fra hver runde blir omgjort til søndags- eller mandagskamper som skal gå på Sky Sports i England og Canal+ i Norge.

E-cupkandidatene

Arsenal og Chelsea ble nummer èn og to forrige sesong, og er klare for Champions League.

Manchester United og Liverpool (nummer tre og fire) skal spille Champions League-kvalifisering 11. og 25. august. Begge lagene er seedet, og bør klare å kvalifisere seg.

Middlesbrough (vinner av Ligacupen), Millwall (tapende cupfinalist) og Newcastle (nummer fem i ligaen) skal spille UEFA-cup.
