Pep Guardiola's Manchester City could face a hard winter after the Premier League fixtures, released on Thursday, pitted them against Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal in the space of six games.

And fans wanting to keep up with all the action could end up paying £900 for the season, according to one expert following Amazon’s first foray into the TV rights battle.

An Amazon Prime subscription is £7.99 a month. BT, who will show 52 games in 2019-20, costs £29.99 a month while Sky, who will show 128, can cost £67.50.

Newly-promoted Norwich face a 500-mile round trip to Liverpool for their opening fixture 

Norwich were left feeling hard done by, with the newly-promoted Premier League club kicking off their campaign with a 500-mile round trip to Liverpool on the Friday night of the opening weekend.

A spokesperson for the Canaries Trust told Sportsmail: ‘Unfortunately this is an early reminder that the Premier League and Sky really don’t care about travelling fans.

‘Norwich to Liverpool is a five-hour drive even without any traffic issues, which makes it very difficult for working fans to get there, let along the return journey terminating in the early hours.’

Daniel Farke’s side have an equally daunting fixture on the final day of the season — away to Manchester City.
