Arsenal to open Premier League season against champions Manchester City

Spurs to host Liverpool in first match at their new stadium as they start Premier League season at Wembley

Spurs to host Liverpool in first match at their new stadium as they start Premier League season at Wembley

The fixture will be Unai Emery's first competitive match as Gunners manager.

Cardiff start at Bournemouth while Fulham, who secured their place in the top flight via a Wembley play-off final win over Aston Villa start the league season at home to Crystal Palace.

Being the unbearably needy dweebs they are, the Premier League have chosen the first day of the World Cup to announce their fixtures for the 2018/19 season.

It is unclear if their state-of-the-art £850m new stadium will be available in time for the start of the new season.

The Red Devils boss, who has managed in England for the majority of his career so far, believes the Three Lions can lift the World Cup this year due to the strength of the Premier League, where most of their players ply their trade.

Arsenal will begin proceedings by hosting the reigning champions at the Emirates before travelling to Stamford Bridge the following weekend. Oof.

The closing few matches will see the club face Huddersfield in April before visiting the defending champions Manchester City, with a visit from the Hammers the last fixture of the month.

Manchester United and Spurs are away four times before group games, while Manchester City are on the road twice before European fixtures.

The redeveloped White Hart Lane will not be ready for the start of the season, so their first home game against the Cottagers will be played at the national stadium.

United, who begin their season at home to Leicester City, were the only team to claim three points at the Etihad against Guardiola's champions last season, with Paul Pogba inspiring the visitors to a 3-2 victory in April having trailed 2-0 at half-time.

This is first time a club has been allowed to play home games at two venues in the same season.
