Sean Dyche says the Clarets are relishing the challenge the Premier League provides after the fixture list was revealed.
The Clarets start with a home game against Swansea City on Saturday 13th August at Turf Moor.
And the boss is looking forward to his side testing themselves in the top-flight once more after going up as Championship champions in the 2015/16 campaign.
He said: “It’s great to back in the Premier League and we’re all relishing the challenge ahead.
“It’s a difficult start but it is nice for the fans for the first game to be at home.
"Like every game in this league, it’ll be tough as Swansea are a good side who had a great end to the season under Francesco Guidolin.
“We then play Liverpool who will have had their first full pre-season under Jurgen Klopp and there have been changes at Chelsea of course.
“Everyone knows the demands of the Premier League but this is where we all wanted to be so we’re looking forward to all the games.”
