Manchester City to start title defence at Arsenal

Manchester City to start title defence at Arsenal

But the former Paris Saint-Germain and Sevilla coach has been given a daunting task at the outset of his reign, with Arsenal kicking off the 2018-19 season at home to Pep Guardiola's champions on the weekend beginning August 11 before then travelling to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea a week later.

Arsenal and Chelsea, who have both just had extremely disappointing seasons, will play a friendly match in Dublin.

The league starts at the scandalously early date of Saturday, August 11 but the games will be spaced out so that there will only be four games played by the start of September [no midweek league fixtures].

Absolutely, it is the game before the season starts.

City, who amassed 100 points and 106 goals en route to finishing 19 points clear of Manchester United in 2017/18, do not face another top six side until the trip to Liverpool in October.

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.

Newly-promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers have reportedly set an ambitious target of finishing in sixth place in their first season back in the Premier League.

A home game against Arsenal on Saturday 27 April, will be followed by a visit to Manchester City a week later before the team return to King Power Stadium to host Chelsea on the final day on Sunday 12 May.
