The waiting is over as the English Premier League returns to take centre stage this weekend.

Pep Guardiola’s reigning champions kick off their hunt for a third-successive crown on Saturday when they take on West Ham at the London Stadium in the lunchtime kick off.

The favourites will begin their season for the first time in over a decade without the talismanic presence of Vincent Kompany, who returned to Belgium after sealing his final English title in May.

City could already be on the back foot by the time they take to the field at the former Olympic arena, with their rivals in red starting their campaign on Friday night.

A quiet summer on the transfer front will see the popular German go again with the group that sealed a sixth European title in the Champions League final in Madrid two months ago.

It’s a super Sunday to celebrate the opening round of fixtures, too, as Manchester United face Chelsea at Old Trafford as one of three matches.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer goes into his first full season in charge against a familiar face in the opposing dugout, as Frank Lampard takes command of his beloved Blues for the first time in a competitive fixture.

Harry Maguire’s arrival as the most expensive defender in the world is a boost to the Red Devils’ backline, with the Londoners suffering from not just a transfer ban but also the loss of star man Eden Hazard to Real Madrid over the summer.

Unai Emery’s Arsenal are in action earlier in the day as they make the long trip north to play Newcastle.

They do so with megabucks signing Nicolas Pepe adding yet more firepower up front, albeit with the departures of long-serving Aaron Ramsey and Laurent Koscielny leaving holes in the spine of the Gunners’ side.

Last season’s top-half rivals Leicester and Wolves go head-to-head in an opening weekend Midlands derby at the same time.

Tottenham continue to bed in at their glitzy new stadium on Saturday as they welcome Aston Villa on their return to the top flight.

Boss Mauricio Pochettino has finally been allowed to loosen the purse strings in north London, with Tanguy Ndombele and Ryan Sessegnon among the arrivals.

Everton are also in the capital on Saturday as they begin their campaign away to Crystal Palace, with the main question being which colour shirt Wilfried Zaha will be lining up in.

Watford kick off the season with a home game against Brighton, who survived the drop last May before bringing in up-and-coming coach Graham Potter to replace Chris Hughton.

Sean Dyche will be looking for a steady start from his Burnley side without the distraction of European football this time around, with the Clarets hosting Southampton on the opening Saturday.

Promoted Sheffield United, meanwhile, mark their return to the big time with a trip to the south coast to face Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth.

Winning the Champions League also booked Liverpool’s place in next week’s UEFA Super Cup and Club World Cup in December, meaning they have five trophies to play for this season.

However, it is ending 30 years of hurt by winning a 19th league title come May that will determine whether Liverpool’s season has been a success or failure.
