Newcastle handed the toughest of starts to the new season

20. Stoke- 1.9

20. Stoke- 1.9

Following the Arsenal game, City do not face another top-six team until they are away to Liverpool - who beat Pep Guardiola's men in the quarter-finals of the Champions League last season - in October.

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

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

"We discussed the timings and ability to play away games and I think it is a good solution to have an earlier home game", said boss Mauricio Pochettino.

Elsewhere on the opening weekend, Manchester United host Leicester City, Liverpool entertain West Ham, and Championship winners Wolverhampton Wanderers welcome Everton to Molineux.

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.

BT Sport will be showing 42 exclusively live Premier League fixtures in the 2018/19 season for the last time before that figure then rises to 52 for the 2019/20 campaign.

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.

Unai Emery will have one hell of a tough start as Arsenal manager.

Tottenham is scheduled to play Fulham at home on the second weekend but it is still unclear if the match will be at the club's temporary home of Wembley Stadium, which it is using while White Hart Lane is being rebuilt.

They will be hosting Huddersfield on Boxing Day before travelling to Newcastle United on New Year's Day.

Now the attention turns towards the summer, and the players who could be moving clubs ahead of the 2018-19 season.
