Watford will host Brighton and Hove Albion on the first day of the 2019/20 season, it has been revealed.

The opening day clash will take place on the weekend of August 10 and will be followed by a trip to Everton the following weekend. 

The Hornets will twice face Manchester City and Arsenal back-to-back, while consecutive fixtures against Liverpool and Manchester United will also happen twice during the season.

The first of those will happen in September when Arsenal visit Vicarage Road on the weekend of September 14, with a trip to Manchester City scheduled for the week after.

The reverse fixtures will be the final two of the campaign.

Meanwhile the weekend of December 14 will see Watford travel to Anfield before hosting Manchester United the week after. The reverse of those games will take place on the weekends of February 22 and 29.
