Arsenal And Chelsea To Meet At Aviva Stadium In August

Fulham's Serbian manager Slavisa Jokanovic watches from the touchline during the English Championship play-off final football match between Aston Villa and Fulham at Wembley Stadium

The first Manchester derby (City at home) is on November 10th.

During the opening six fixtures, City are due to play all three promoted teams, handing Guardiola's men the flawless opportunity to make another strong start to the season.

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

The first Merseyside derby (Liverpool at home) is also December 1st.

With the release of City's 2018/19 Premier League fixtures, we analyse the stand-out matches and potentially key periods.

And 2019 faces an explosive start with Liverpool due to travel to the Etihad for what promises to be another key game in the battle for the title next season.

United and Liverpool fans often look out for their side's upcoming clashes at Anfield and Old Trafford whenever fixtures are announced and today is surely no different.

However, despite Mike Ashley blocking all bids for Rafa Benitez targets in terms of new faces in the transfer market, there is already silverware on the way to those Newcastle fans.

The club had hoped to move in to their 62,062-seater stadium in time for the start of the season, but will instead play against the Championship playoff winners on the weekend of Aug 18-19 back at their home for the 2017-18 season.

The Blues' defence of the Premier League title kicks off with one of the toughest of tests - a trip to Arsenal.

City will then take on Huddersfield Town in their first home game of the season, before rounding off August with a trip to newly-promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Interesting to see as well, that 13 of the other 19 clubs have Newcastle United as their longest away trip of the season.
