City to begin title defence against Emery's Arsenal

Man City celebrate their title success last season

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.

The first north London derby (Arsenal at home) is December 1st.

As for the rest of the opening day itinerary, it looks like this...

The opening Manchester derby of the season takes place at the Etihad on November 10.

That game against Liverpool comes three days before matchday one of the Champions League, meaning Spurs will definitely play their group stage matches at their new home. The Gunners then visit Chelsea at Stamford Bridge a week later.

A journey down to Southampton follows on 29 December and we bring in the New Year with a mouth-watering visit of Liverpool on 1 January.

The latest football transfer gossip column from The Sport Review, featuring all of the latest Premier League transfer news and rumours.


Meanwhile, Cardiff City, Fulham and Wolves have all been handed potentially winnable opening assignments following their promotion to the top flight.

Liverpool, the losing Champions League finalists, appear to have the toughest start of any of the likely title-contenders.

With Fulham, Cardiff and Wolves, replacing Stoke, West Brom and Swansea, it has got even more extreme.

Oddly, for the third consecutive season, we lock horns with Arsenal and Chelsea in consecutive games.

Once the World Cup is over and the players begin to return from their holidays, preparation will begin for the 2018/19 campaign.

"We are excited about the season ahead and making the new stadium our new home".

Indeed, the champions will face all of the three promoted teams in their opening six games before a hard August sees them take on Liverpool, Burnley and Tottenham Hotspur, all of whom finished in the top seven last season.
