Just like last season, Newcastle United will begin their Premier League campaign against David Moyes' West Ham side.

When the two teams met on the opening day of the 2020/21 season, The Magpies ran out comfortable 2-0 winners, with the goals coming from new signings Callum Wilson and Jeff Hendrick.

After facing West Ham – who have qualified for the Europa League – on August 14th at St James' Park, they will make the trip to Birmingham to play Aston Villa.

Steve Bruce's men round off the opening month with a home tie against Southampton before heading into a difficult September, with back-to-back games against Manchester United and Leeds to contend with.

October is headlined by home games against Tottenham and Chelsea – whilst November will see the return of Ivan Toney to Tyneside when newly-promoted Brentford make the trip up to the North-East.

The Toon have a torrid Christmas period where they will face Leicester, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United (on Boxing Day) and Everton consecutively, before making the 664-mile round trip to St Mary's on New Year's Day.

January and February does offer some respite to Newcastle after a rough December, where they will face none of the league's 'Big Six' sides.

March consists of important home ties against Brighton and Crystal Palace, with a trip to Stamford Bridge to take on European champions Chelsea sandwiched in between.

The final run-in of the season is expected to be tough once again for Newcastle, with games against Tottenham, Leicester and Liverpool all to come in April – before rounding off the season with games against Manchester City and Arsenal that lead directly into a visit to Turf Moor to face Burnley on the final day.

In preparation for the new campaign The Magpies have – so far – arranged three pre-season friendlies, facing York City, Harrogate Town and Burton Albion, all away from home.
