Manchester City to start title defence at Arsenal

Manchester City to start title defence at Arsenal

Tottenham will play their first designated home game at Wembley in matchweek two when Fulham are the visitors.

Arsenal-Man City is the standout on the opening weekend in the English Premier League.

Spurs had been due to host Watford on September 1 but agreed to reverse that fixture to play at Watford's Vicarage Road.

Emery, who beat off competition from former Arsenal captain Mikel Arteta to land the job as Gunners boss last month, has been charged with guiding the club back into the Champions league following the decline in the team's fortunes during the final two years of Wenger's 22-year reign.

And the Spaniard has been given a testing opening to Premier League management.

The Gunners will take on the champions at the Emirates on the opening weekend of the season, which takes place on August 11, before then travelling to Stamford Bridge for a London derby in their second game.

Liverpool's pre-Europe travels The Premier League has released dates for all 380 matches, but none have been allotted kick-off times as broadcasters are yet to decide which games will be televised.

Both aiming for cup success and consistent finishes in the top four, the likes of Chelsea and Arsenal have been pushed down the league of late as the Reds and Spurs both climb.

Guardiola will look to retain the Premier League title for the first time since Manchester United in 2008/09.

We'll face familiar foes as the three promoted sides make their return to Premier League action.

Wolves, who won the Championship by nine points, follow the visit of Everton with a trip to 2016-17 champions Leicester, and visit Liverpool on the final day of the campaign.

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.

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