Michail Antonio celebrates scoring against Aston Villa in the 2023/24 season

2024/25 Fixtures: The opening weekend's clashes

West Ham United will host Aston Villa in our opening match of the 2024/25 season.

Last term, the two teams played out a competitive 1-1 draw in the corresponding London Stadium fixture, when Michail Antonio's header was cancelled out by a late leveller from Nicolò Zaniolo.

The Irons felt hard done by at the final whistle, however, after having a stoppage time goal chalked off for handball by Tomáš Souček after a lengthy VAR review.

This time around, Sky Sports will broadcast the meeting between Julen Lopetegui's and Unai Emery's sides, with kick-off in east London at 5.30pm BST on Saturday 17 August.

Elsewhere on the opening weekend, Manchester United will take on Fulham in the campaign's curtain-raiser at Old Trafford on Friday 16 August.

On the Saturday, newly promoted Ipswich Town face Liverpool in the early 12.30pm BST kick-off, while 2023/24 runners-up Arsenal play Wolverhampton Wanderers in the headline fixture from the 3pm BST slate.

Also at 3pm BST, Everton host Brighton & Hove Albion, Southampton make the long trip to Newcastle United and Nottingham Forest welcome AFC Bournemouth to the City Ground.
