Arsenal fans bemoan tough start after seeing Premier League fixtures

Premier League fixtures

The Premier League this morning revealed the fixtures for the 2018-19 season and defending champions City will travel to the Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal in the opening match of their title defence.

The Gunners will take on the champions at the Emirates on the opening weekend of the season, which takes place on August 11, before then travelling to Stamford Bridge for a London derby in their second game.

"We are so excited to have the date of the first Premier League match at our new stadium", he said.

The home fixture against the Reds follows Matchday Four of the Champions League (6/7 November), while the return derby takes place after the Round of 16 knock-out stages (5/6 or 12/13 March).

Jose Mourinho's Manchester United, a distant runners-up to City last season, start at home to Leicester City while FA Cup winners Chelsea are away to Huddersfield Town.

Liverpool have been handed six home games directly after UCL fixtures, whereas Man United, Man City and Spurs have all been scheduled with a split three home and three away games.

Things won't get any easier for them either, with games against Luis Suarez's Uruguay and Mohamed Salah's Egypt to follow. This edition of the World Cup will be the most expensive in history, but also the most profitable.

Perhaps the most eagerly anticipated game next season will not be the Manchester derby, but the first clash between City and Liverpool at Anfield on October 6.

According to The Times, Mourinho is upset that Jurgen Klopp's side have been awarded six home games after each of their Champions League group games.

Four rounds of Premier League fixtures are scheduled to be played before the first worldwide break, which is over the weekend of 8 and 9 September.

City claimed a 100% record against Arsenal and Chelsea last season with our 1-0 triumph at Stamford Bridge a stand-out victory and performance.

Guardiola will look to retain the Premier League title for the first time since Manchester United in 2008/09.

It is now all about which of them can navigate their programme best - but none of them will want to be in Arsenal's shoes at the beginning of August.
