Chris Wilder will take his men to Stamford Bridge in November, prior to welcoming Manchester United to S2 in mid-December. The Blades are at home on Boxing Day too, with Carlo Ancelotti's Everton the visitors.
2021 begins at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace and January ends with a trips to Manchester to face United and City in the same week.
The Blades top-flight campaign ends where it started, at Bramall Lane, with a clash against Sean Dyche's Burnley.
The Premier League has agreed with its UK broadcast partners to increase the number of matches shown live from 200 to 220 for the 2020/21 season only. Of the additional live matches, 12 will be shown on Sky Sports, six on BT Sport and two on Amazon Prime Video.
Also, as the forthcoming season is condensed there will be two additional midweek programmes: one will be played across the weeks commencing 11th and 18th January, and the second will take place in the week commencing Monday 10th May. All of these games will be broadcast live.
The UK broadcast selections for the early match rounds will be confirmed next week.
The 2020/21 season will begin behind closed doors. The Premier League is committed to getting fans back into full stadia as soon as possible, with safety always being the priority.
