Plenty of Crystal Palace fans have been giving their thoughts to the club’s fixtures for the 2021/22 season on social media.
The Premier League released the dates for every top-flight fixture on Thursday morning.
Palace, who are still without a manager, start the campaign at Stamford Bridge to take on European champions Chelsea. They then host newly-promoted Brentford before ending August at West Ham.
September doesn’t get any easier for the Eagles, who face Tottenham and Liverpool before facing off against rivals Brighton at Selhurst Park. The return fixture against the Seagulls is scheduled for January 15.
Other notable dates include a trip to Spurs on Boxing Day, a home clash with West Ham on New Year’s Day and a final day fixture against Manchester United at Selhurst Park.

Palace shared their entire fixture list for the upcoming campaign on their official Twitter page.
This is what these Eagles supporters had to say in reply, with some seemingly not too optimistic and on describing the start as ‘brutal’.

“Wow 4 Derbies to start”
“That’s a brutal start”
“0 point season”
“Be bottom in October I reckon. Hopefully can pick it up after that”
