The Premier League fixtures for the 2018-19 season were published on Thursday and the Arsenal-Man City game was the standout on the opening weekend.

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

Tottenham make the trip to Tyneside to play Newcastle United, while Chelsea go to Huddersfield and Manchester United host Leicester City.

Manchester United begin their league campaign at home to Leicester City and face a potentially tricky encounter in their third game when Tottenham Hotspur come to Old Trafford.

They will then play another away game at Watford on September 1 before the global break after the Hornets agreed to reverse the fixture.

They finished 25 points behind champions Manchester City in 2017-18, and while the Sky Blues enjoyed a record-breaking campaign, Liverpool's points tally of 75 would only have been good enough for fifth the season before. Liverpool will be at home to Everton in the first fixture of the two.

The Premier League fixtures are out, and Arsenal have a pretty brutal start ahead of them.

Absolutely, it is the game before the season starts.

The traditional Premier League 'Clasico' between Liverpool and United is due to be staged at Anfield on December 15, with the return taking place at Old Trafford on February 23.

Everton end the season with a trip to Spurs' new ground, which luckily for them, they will have settled into by then and will thrash us comfortably as our season will be over following Champions League qualification the week before against Burnley at Goodison Park.

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

Tottenham's first game at their new White Hart Lane stadium will be against Liverpool on the weekend of September 15 and 16 following the first global break of the season.
