Premier League Pre-Season Guide

Mid-July marks the beginning of hope for football fans across the country as the Premier League teams return to action and start their pre-season tours. Here at Free Super Tips we’ll be covering all the pre-season friendlies from the top flight and keeping everybody up to date ahead of the new season kicking off. You can make sure you don’t miss a thing by checking our Premier League section regularly too!

Woking vs Watford – 8th July

Watford's Troy Deeney

The first Premier League side in action this summer are Watford, who kick off their pre-season campaign on the 8th July with a trip to National League outfit Woking before waiting for over a week to travel to Wimbledon for their second match.

For those in the area tickets will be available on the day, and make sure to check out our Football Previews section for all our betting tips for the game.

Arsenal vs Bayern Munich – 19th July

Football Soccer - Bayern Munich v Hamburg SV - German Bundesliga

Arsenal begin their International Champions Cup campaign against painfully familiar opposition in Bayern Munich. The German giants battered them 10-2 on aggregate in the Champions League last season and Arsene Wenger and company will be keen to claw back at least a shred of dignity when they meet in Shanghai on 19th July. Whether they can manage that is another question entirely though, and it’s unlikely to lessen the pain of that embarrassment.

Manchester Derby – 20th July

Manchester United Premier League

The ever expanding International Champions Cup invites two of the Premier League’s biggest rivals to the North American instalment of the competition on the 20th July, with both teams kicking off their friendly tournament campaign against each other in Houston, Texas.

Whilst this might not be as ferociously contested as many of their other meetings it’s certainly worth keeping an eye on. It will also be the first time these two sides have met on foreign soil.

The Manchester sides will follow this clash with games against prestigious opposition such as Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Spurs in the week following this.

Chelsea vs Arsenal – 22nd July

Arsenal - Premier League

With the Premier League champions and the FA Cup champions set to go head to head at Wembley at the start of August this will be a perfect warm up for the pair. The two meet at the Bird’s Nest Stadium in Beijing for a pre-cursor to their Community Shield clash just a few weeks later.

Tottenham Hotspur vs Juventus – 5th August

Tottenham's Dele Alli

Tottenham Hotspur have a star studded pre-season campaign including opponents such as PSG, AS Roma, and Manchester City but it’s this one that catches the eye. Spurs prepare for a full season at Wembley Stadium with a final friendly clash against Serie A dominants Juventus just a week before the Premier League season kicks off.
