Reason why Jose Mourinho is 'angered' by Liverpool's fixtures for 2018/19 campaign

Manchester City celebrate

Indeed, the champions will face all of the three promoted teams in their opening six games before a hard August sees them take on Liverpool, Burnley and Tottenham Hotspur, all of whom finished in the top seven last season. No use in betting, games or single club/league/player publications.

Arsenal's new manager Unai Emery will begin his reign in north London with tricky league games against Manchester City and Chelsea.

The home fixture against the Reds follows Matchday Four of the Champions League (6/7 November), while the return derby takes place after the Round of 16 knock-out stages (5/6 or 12/13 March).

The Premier League released the fixtures for all clubs and we got to see just who we would start the season against as we look to make it back to the top four, at least next season.

Arsenal will host Manchester City on the opening weekend before travelling to Chelsea FC in their next Premier League game in August.

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

Pep Guardiola's Manchester City are huge favourites to win the league next season after they strolled to the title this year.

The opening round of Premier League fixtures is completed by Southampton's clash with Burnley at St Mary's and Watford taking on Brighton & Hove Albion at Vicarage Road.

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.

City have seven league games (plus the final Champions League group match and a potential Carabao Cup encounter), kicking off with Bournemouth at home on 1 December. That includes trips to Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham.

Four rounds of Premier League fixtures have been scheduled before the first global break, which will take place on the weekend of 8-9 September.
