Aston Villa will start their 2021/22 Premier League campaign away at newly-promoted Watford on Saturday August 14.
Dean Smith’s side, looking to build on an 11th-place finish last season, then host Newcastle on August 21, before welcoming another promoted side in Brentford to Villa Park on August 28.
Their September then gets considerably more tricky, with Chelsea away on September 11, Everton at home on September 18, and a trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United on September 25.
Villa’s Boxing Day fixture is against Chelsea at Villa Park, with their New Year’s Day fixture at Brentford, while their final game of the 2021/22 season is at current champions Manchester City on May 22.
Villa have already strengthened their squad ahead of next season, with the capture of Emi Buendia from Norwich earlier this month.
