Aston Villa vs. Sheff Utd (Monday, 6.00pm)
Both sides were promoted together in 2018-19 but endured contrasting campaigns last season, with Villa only narrowly avoiding relegation and Sheffield United surpassing all expectations.
We say: Aston Villa 1-1 Sheffield United
Aston Villa will be full of optimism heading into this match after their recent transfer business, and they will fancy their chances of kicking things off with a positive result against Sheffield United.
The Blades are difficult to beat, though, and despite having not won any of their last 13 league visits to Villa Park, we can see them coming away with a point this time.
Our tipster partners are predicting a double chance bet on a home win or an away win.
Wolves vs. Man City (Monday, 8.15pm)
Pep Guardiola's side will be hoping to wrestle the title back from Liverpool this season, but face a difficult opening test against a team that beat them home and away last term.
We say: Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-2 Manchester City
This is a bogey fixture for Man City and would certainly not have been Guardiola's first choice for their opening game.
Both teams have attacking units which can cause plenty of problems for the opposition, and we are backing an entertaining draw at Molineux.
Our tipster partners are predicting under 3.5 goals.
