Arsenal And Chelsea To Meet At Aviva Stadium In August

Manchester United have been handed an opening week home game against Leicester City at Old Trafford after the Premier League announced their fixtures list for the 2018/19 season, leaving fans reacting to the news.

The final round of Premier League fixtures, scheduled for May 12, will see Manchester City away to Brighton, while Manchester United and Liverpool are at home to Cardiff and Wolves respectively.

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

Liverpool will be the first visitors to the yet-to-be-named stadium on the weekend of September 15-16, the club confirmed.

This is first time a club has been allowed to play home games at two venues in the same season.

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.

The opening day of the season has the whopper clash between Arsenal and their tormentors from last season, the champions Manchester City.

Trips to City (February 2) and Tottenham (March 2) follow before their final "Top Six" fixture against United (March 9).

And 2019 faces an explosive start with Liverpool due to travel to the Etihad for what promises to be another key game in the battle for the title next season.

Spurs had been due to host Watford on 1 September, but the Hornets agreed to swap the fixture's venue to Vicarage Road.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are more fancied than Manchester United to triumph but neither team are favourites to win the Premier League.
