The Clarets make their return to the top flight next season after storming to the Championship title under Vincent Kompany.

Their opening fixture, a home game against reigning champions Manchester City, had already been pencilled in for Friday, August 11 (8pm kick-off) after being selected for Sky Sports coverage.

Three further games have now been moved following further picks by Sky and the newly-rebranded TNT Sports, formerly BT Sport.

The Clarets’ second home game of the season against Aston Villa has been moved back a day to Sunday, August 27 (2pm kick-off).

This is due to Villa’s participation in the UEFA Conference League the previous Thursday.

The following month, Kompany’s side will now face Nottingham Forest at the City Ground on Monday, September 18 (7.45pm kick-off), two days later than originally planned.
