Premier League fixture 'leak' debunked thanks to Luton Town home game
| Last updated
A supposed 'leak' of the Premier League fixtures has been debunked as being a fake thanks to Luton Town's opening fixture.
On Saturday night the football season in England ended with Manchester City beating Inter Milan to be crowned champions of Europe.
The next few days saw plenty of fall out, which is what Jack Grealish somehow managed avoid doing from the open top bus that paraded City and their trio of trophies around Manchester.
Then on Wednesday the transfer window opened with Jude Bellingham climbing through into the Bernabeu to sign for Real Madrid.
In case you were worrying that the endlessness of football might somehow stop any time soon we have the excitement of next season's Premier League fixtures being announced on Thursday.
No doubt the order of which teams play the others when will cause some sort of conspiracy theories, even Gary Lineker blamed the computer on Leicester City's relegation.
The other thing to keep an eye on before the official list drops at 9 am on June 15th is the attempts at claiming the fixtures have been leaked.
One Twitter account attempted to claim that the opening weekend had been uncovered early simply by someone holding out for others to take pictures.

The problem is that Luton Town's fixture with Liverpool on the opening day is unlikely to be correct, following the Hatters' play off win over Coventry City.
Their Kenilworth Road home has caused all sorts of headlines and the club have had to do a lot of work on it in a short amount of time.
As per the BBC, the league were in discussions with the club over letting them play as many as 'three or four' of their opening games away from home.
That means they're unlikely to be playing Jurgen Klopp's side first up, with the team from Merseyside having also requested an away fixture on the opening weekend due to their own improvements of Anfield.
News that the list is likely to be fake will certainly come as a relief for fans of Manchester United, who will no doubt still be dealing with the nightmare of losing to Brighton at home from the opening game last year.
Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur fans might also be pretty happy to be avoiding each other on the opening weekend.
