Tottenham confirm first game at new stadium vs Liverpool in September

The match will also be new Arsenal manager Unai Emery's first in English football's top flight.

Mauricio Pochettino's will play their opening home game at Wembley against Fulham before facing Manchester United at Old Trafford in the opening month.

During the opening six fixtures, City are due to play all three promoted teams, handing Guardiola's men the ideal opportunity to make another strong start to the season.

One of Mourinho's reasons was the fact that all of Gareth Southgate's squad play in the Premier League - which he described as the best League in the world.

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

Dates for all 380 matches will be revealed, with the league campaign running from 11 August to 19 May.

Liverpool begin their season at home to West Ham United, with Manuel Pellegrini taking charge of the Hammers for the first time.

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

Spurs petitioned to play their first four games away from home, similarly to Liverpool last season before the opening of their new main stand. That includes trips to Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham.

Away fixtures at Watford, which has been reversed, and Manchester United and an global break buy them some time to complete work on the stadium before Jurgen Klopp's men visit for the first game in the middle of September.

United, who begin their season at home to Leicester City, were the only team to claim three points at the Etihad against Guardiola's champions last season, with Paul Pogba inspiring the visitors to a 3-2 victory in April having trailed 2-0 at half-time.

The first Manchester derby takes place at City's Etihad Stadium on November 10, with the second at Old Trafford on March 16.
