Social media has been awash with posts regarding a 'leaked' opening day fixture list for the 2019/20 Premier League season this morning - but the 'leak' can be debunked.

Manchester City and Manchester United will discover their 2019/20 Premier League fixtures at 9am on Thursday and fans are eagerly anticipating the reveal.

The Premier League would likely use 'BST' instead of 'B.S'.T'.

Therefore, the fact that the document shows Spurs' game, Burnley vs Liverpool, Aston Villa vs Leicester City, Manchester United vs Brighton and Wolves vs Manchester City as 'confirmed' matches for TV coverage is a significant error.

Therefore, the 'leaked' image is almost certainly fake - and there are a number of notable mistakes that identify this is the case.

The fixture list is a closely-guarded secret ahead of the 9am embargo, with even journalists and informed figures not knowing until Thursday morning.

Social media 'leaks' are common in these sorts of scenarios, with the post in question often claiming to know things like the Champions League draw ahead of schedule, but they are almost always wrong.
