The new season kicks off at Anfield when Liverpool come up against a Stoke City side with a new manager in Mark Hughes.

With unsettled striker Luis Suarez absent as he completes his 10-game ban for biting Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic last season, Rodgers has been boosted by the news that Daniel Sturridge has overcome an ankle problem.

Former Wigan Athletic manager Roberto Martinez takes his new club Everton to Norwich City today, while Cardiff City, promoted as winners of the Championship, visit West Ham United for their first top-level match since 1962.

Paolo di Canio’s Sunderland, and their 10 new signings, begin the campaign at home to Fulham, while Southampton will have club record £12.5 million signing Victor Wanyama on board for their trip to West Bromwich Albion.
