Two of last seasons top ten meet on the opening weekend as Sheffield United entertain Wolves.
Sheffield United were the surprise package of the 2019-20 campaign, with a ninth placed finish a massive over achievement on most pre-season predictions.
The Blades made three signings on Monday, adding Derby County duo Max Lowe and Jayden Bogle as well as Welsh international Ethan Ampadu on loan from Chelsea.
Wolves smashed their transfer record on FC Porto striker Fabio Silva on Saturday. The club have also moved for Lyon defender Marcel as a replacement for Matt Doherty who was allowed to join Tottenham.
Last season Wolves enjoyed a good run in the Europa League, only beaten at the Quarter-Final stage by eventual winners Sevilla. They also finished seventh in the league, matching the previous campaigns record.
The Blades took four points off Wolves last term, winning the fixture at Bramall Lane thanks to a last minute John Egan winner.
Both teams have enjoyed an excellent few years, highlighted by the fact they met in the third tier of English football as recently as 2014.
