Manchester City will start the defence of their Premier League title away to Tottenham on the opening weekend of the season in August.

City will go into the new season as the favourites for the title, but their credentials are set to be tested from the off with Spurs, Arsenal, Leicester City, Chelsea and Liverpool to face in their first seven matches.

The club made a slow start off the blocks last season, and manager Pep Guardiola will hope that his team can make an improved start this time around, though they face a testing beginning to the campaign.

The opening round of fixtures for next season also sees Manchester United welcome Leeds to Old Trafford, while the other promoted sides, Norwich City and Watford, launch their campaigns at home to Liverpool and Aston Villa respectively.

European champions Chelsea are at home to Crystal Palace, Burnley and Brighton will meet at Turf Moor, Everton will host Southampton, it’s Leicester City against Wolves and Newcastle play West Ham at St. James’ Park.

The first meeting between Liverpool and Manchester City is down for October 2nd at Anfield, while Jurgen Klopp’s side will travel to Old Trafford to face Manchester United later that month.

The first Manchester derby is scheduled for November 6th at Old Trafford with the second derby down for March 5th.

There has been a mixed response among the club’s supporters regarding the fixtures, and here are a few reactions on Twitter.
