  • Spurs to host Liverpool in first match at their new stadium as they start Premier League season at Wembley

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.

Unai Emery has been handed the toughest possible start to his tenure at Arsenal: A match against English Premier League champion Manchester City.

Fixtures for the 2018-19 Premier League season will be announced at 09:00 BST on Thursday, 14 June.

The games against Manchester United will first be staged at the Etihad Stadium on 10 November, while the game across the city at Old Trafford will be featured on 16 March.

During the opening six fixtures, City are due to play all three promoted teams, handing Guardiola's men the flawless opportunity to make another strong start to the season. The Gunners then visit Chelsea at Stamford Bridge a week later.

Tottenham confirm first game at new stadium vs Liverpool in September

Gareth Southgate's side begin their campaign against Tunisia on Monday, and Mourinho said his players had the ability and experience to exceed many people's expectations.

The Champions League quarterfinal meeting between the two clubs - with both legs won by Liverpool - also intensified the rivalry between the two sides and October's meeting will also be the first time City will travel to Anfield since their team bus was attacked by missile-throwing supporters prior to the Champions League first-leg tie.

The release of the 2018/19 Premier League fixtures sees Liverpool head to Tottenham on September 15 - meaning the Reds will be the first visitors to their new ground. That includes trips to Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham.

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.

Fortunately, it does get a little easier for Emery, with his next five fixtures after Chelsea being against West Ham, Cardiff, Newcastle, Everton and Watford.
