And apart from Liverpool being a breath away from being crowned champions, there is still plenty more fans can look forward in the 92 remaining matches.
Legit.ng now takes a look at the top five for the first few rounds of fixtures you cannot afford to miss:

2. Tottenham vs Man United
Spurs have endured a difficult spell since the arrival of Jose Mourinho who took over from Mauricio Pochettino back in November 2019.
However, the coronavirus pandemic may have come as a blessing in disguise for Mourinho with its break seeing a number of previously injured Spurs players make a return.
The fixture will see Bruno Fernandes and Paul Pogba potentially link up together in the midfield for the very first time.

4. Everton vs Liverpool
The Merseyside derby will see Liverpool possibly lift the title at Goodison Park.
Having lost just a single match all through the campaign, Liverpool are well on course to win it by record points.
5. Tottenham vs Arsenal
