Arsenal And Chelsea To Meet At Aviva Stadium In August

Leicester City's first game at King Power Stadium comes a week later on Saturday 18 August, when newly-promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers visit King Power Stadium for the first time since 2013. The 2017/18 runners-up have Tottenham at home in their third game, with Brighton, Burnley, Watford, Wolves, West Ham and Newcastle are their other early season opponents.

Nuno Espirito Santo's men won the Championship title at a canter this past season, dominating for most of the campaign and nearly notching up a century of points along the way.

Oh yes, and Mikel Arteta will be on the touchline at the Emirates Stadium at the start of the new season after all...

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


Liverpool will host the first Merseyside derby of the season on December 1, with the return fixture at Everton's Goodison Park slated for March 2.

Fulham, who booked their place in the top flight with victory over Aston Villa in the Championship play-off final, begin at home to Crystal Palace, before the trip to Spurs is followed by Burnley at home and Brighton away.

Jurgen Klopp's team beat City on three occasions last season, including the Premier League win in January which ended their hopes of going through a campaign unbeaten in the league.
