The home fixture at Wembley in mid-February falls at the stage of the season where Arsenal habitually begin their annual collapse and could be followed by games in the Champions League round of 16 for Spurs or the Europa League round of 32 for both clubs.

It then gets more hard for Antonio Conte and his team, which takes on Tottenham in the second round before games against Leicester away and Manchester City, Arsenal and Everton at home as part of their first seven games.

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. Pep Guardiola's City, meanwhile, will play Brighton (A), Everton (H), Bournemouth (A), Liverpool (H) and Watford (A).

Tottenham and Chelsea will then face each other at Wembley on week two of the season in a massive early-season clash.

The first Manchester derby of the season takes place at Old Trafford on the weekend of 9 December - immediately after the final Champions League group game, while City also face Arsenal after the fourth group match.

The Premier League's schedule release Wednesday was cheered by most soccer fans, especially those overseas, but some Premier League fans based in England believe the league has gone too far to accommodate the high-paying broadcasters.

Runners-up Tottenham start away from home for the seventh successive season.

The festive programme is typically packed, with a full round of fixtures two days before Christmas.

There promises to be a cracking start to 2018 as Arsenal are scheduled to take on Chelsea at the Emirates Stadium on New Year's Day and Manchester United go to Everton.

All the timings are subject to slight change because of TV scheduling.

Leicester became the first reigning Premier League champions to lose their opening game.

Another early indicator in the race for the Champions League places comes in the following round of games, with Liverpool travelling to Etihad Stadium to face Manchester City.

In fairness, Liverpool's fixtures are kinder than they have been in previous seasons, with nothing like the tough opening they faced on paper last season.

Newly promoted Newcastle host Tottenham, while Brighton welcome Manchester City and Huddersfield visit Crystal Palace.
