Premier League fixtures: Arsenal target return to Champions League

Posted June 15, 2017

The season opener for City will be on the road to newly promoted Brighton & Hove Albion, who will certainly make the Amex Stadium a insane atmosphere for the team's first ever Premier League match.

Champions Chelsea will start their 2017/18 Premier League campaign at home to Burnley.

Champions Chelsea begin against Burnley, while promoted trio Brighton and Hove Albion, Newcastle United and Huddersfield Town take on Manchester City, Tottenham and Crystal Palace respectively.

The Seagulls then travel to 2016 Champions Leicester City on Saturday 19th August. With the exception of Southampton, who finished eighth a year ago, the champions' other opponents are either newly-promoted or sides that finished in the bottom half of the table last season.

The first Manchester derby of the season at Old Trafford is scheduled for December 9, the week after United have travelled to Arsenal, while the first meeting of the campaign between the Red Devils and Liverpool is on October 14.

"The fans will enjoy being at home to Manchester City on Boxing Day".

They face Chelsea away, Everton at home, Man City away and then Arsenal at home on the final day.

West Ham United have the pleasure of playing their first three matches away from home due to The London Stadium's athletic restrictions.

The last time Spurs visited the national stadium was in the FA Cup semi-final, a game they lost 4-2 to this season's first visitors - Chelsea.

English football's top-flight sides will face four league games in nine days over Christmas and new year, with eight in total from 2 December to 1 January.

The North London derby is usually the first fixture Arsenal fans look for when the new schedule comes out. David Wagner's Terriers face Chelsea, Everton, Manchester City and Arsenal in their final four games.

"One possibility is that the Southampton fixture will be reversed, with Slaven Bilic's side scheduled to visit St Mary's on 31 March, meaning that West Ham would play their first three games away from home".

It means that Arsene Wenger is really going to have to use his squad well, and we're likely to see significant rotation between Europa and Premier League games.
