Arsenal fans bemoan tough start after seeing Premier League fixtures

Arsenal fans bemoan tough start after seeing Premier League fixtures

The match will also be new Arsenal manager Unai Emery's first in English football's top flight.

Jose Mourinho is furious with the Premier League for giving Liverpool a more favourable series of fixtures than Manchester United following Champions League matches, according to reports.

Spurs had been due to host Watford on September 1 but agreed to reverse that fixture to play at Watford's Vicarage Road.

Wenger chose to step down at the end of last season after nearly 22 years in charge of the north London club.

Full of hope before the 9am announcement, many were left in a grump after discovering that the Gunners must face defending champions Manchester City and 2017 winners Chelsea in their first two games.

The new year will see the north London side travel to Cardiff before they welcome Manchester United to their new stadium.

Donald Trump says Russian Federation should be be allowed to rejoin G7
Trump's stunning remarks on Russian Federation added to already fraught talks at the G7 and leave him more isolated. Earlier on Sunday, Putin criticised the USA withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal in a speech at the summit.

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.

Guardiola will look to retain the Premier League title for the first time since Manchester United in 2008/09. That includes trips to Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham.

United, who begin their season at home to Leicester City, were the only team to claim three points at the Etihad against Guardiola's champions last season, with Paul Pogba inspiring the visitors to a 3-2 victory in April having trailed 2-0 at half-time.

"The fixture we all look forward to is the first home game, and this season that will be against another unsafe side in Wolverhampton Wanderers, who enjoyed a fantastic season in the Championship to reach the Premier League", added Puel.

Fulham begin with London derbies against Crystal Palace and Tottenham, while Cardiff follow their opener at Bournemouth with a home game against Newcastle.
