Manchester City to begin title defence against Arsenal

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

Claude Puel says Leicester City's maiden fixture of the 2018/19 Premier League season will be a thrilling encounter for the Club's players and fans to look forward to.

The opening round of Premier League fixtures is completed by Southampton's clash with Burnley at St Mary's and Watford taking on Brighton & Hove Albion at Vicarage Road.

Emery has succeeded Arsene Wenger, who left Arsenal after 22 years in charge.

The Red Devils boss, who has managed in England for the majority of his career so far, believes the Three Lions can lift the World Cup this year due to the strength of the Premier League, where most of their players ply their trade.

After opening against the reigning Champions, Arsenal will then contest a London derby against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

The Merseysiders will play each of their Premier League matches directly proceeding their six Champions League group games at home, while the rest of their rivals - United, Man City and Tottenham - have an even split of three away and three at home.

Spurs, who start 2018-19 away at Newcastle, were hoping to move into their 62,000-arena for the start of the campaign but work has overran, meaning they will return to the national stadium for one game, with Fulham the visitors on August 18.

Tottenham have confirmed that they will play their first home Premier League game of the season against Fulham at Wembley.

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.

England face Tunisia in their opening game on Monday, with Panama and star-studded Belgium their other opponents in Group G.
