Manchester United starts at home to Leicester and plays only one of last season's top six, Tottenham, in its first eight games.

Those games are in between two Champions League fixtures and an global break.

Some of us won't have got past those first few fixtures...

Manchester United begin their league campaign at home to Leicester City and face a potentially tricky encounter in their third game when Tottenham Hotspur come to Old Trafford.

Manchester United manager José Mourinho is reportedly far from happy with what he perceives as an unfair advantage for bitter rivals Liverpool in next season's Premier League fixture list. Guardiola will hope to finally get the better of Jurgen Klopp when he goes to Anfield on October 6, or at the Etihad on New Year's Day.

Jurgen Klopp's side travel to Watford and Bournemouth respectively before the remaining two games of the group stages. Pep's team will finish the festive period with a home game on 1 January against Liverpool.

That victory served as the 20th straight title defence for the Kazakh champion, whose record now stands at 38-0-1. The fight generated 1.3 million pay-per-view buys and a $27 million gate - the third-biggest in boxing history.

Manchester City to start title defence at Arsenal
However, Benitez and numerous club's supporters will be hoping that is not the case come that stage of the season. As if that is not enough, the Gunners then travel to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea on match-week two.

Arsenal and Manchester City will collide in a huge curtain raiser to the 2018/19 Premier League season, which will again include 42 games shown exclusively live on BT Sport.

Liverpool are at home to Manchester United on December 15 before making the return trip on February 23.

Liverpool, who will look to build on their Champions League final appearance, open their campaign at home to West Ham United in what will be manager Manuel Pellegrini's first competitive game in charge of the London side.

It starts in September when Liverpool travel to Tottenham's new stadium ahead of the opening game of the Champions League group stages, which both teams automatically qualified for.

It is now all about which of them can navigate their programme best - but none of them will want to be in Arsenal's shoes at the beginning of August.
