Manchester City’s first game of the new season – and Erling Haaland’s probable debut opponents – appear to have been mistakenly disclosed by the Premier League.
City’s championship defense will begin against Bournemouth, according to the English Premier League’s Twitter account, three days before the matches are officially posted on Thursday.
That seems Pep Guardiola’s winners will face Scott Parker’s newly promoted team, who were promoted after finishing second in the Championship, two points behind champions Fulham.
Haaland, whose £51 million signing from Borussia Dortmund was officially completed on Monday, might make his debut against the Cherries.
‘Ahaha no way, the premier league account just accidentally leaked That City is playing Bournemouth in the first GW,’ wrote an eagle-eyed fan, who posted a photo of the tweet with the caption: ‘Ahaha no way, the premier league account just accidentally leaked That City is playing Bournemouth in the first GW.’
