Manchester City to start title defence at Arsenal

14 June 2018

New Arsenal boss Unai Emery has a hard job on his hands replacing the legendary Arsene Wenger at the Emirates. After the Gunners host the champions, the team now managed by Emery are at Chelsea.

Premier League champions Manchester City will start their title defence at Arsenal, who will be under the stewardship of new manager Unai Emery.

According to a report from the Daily Mirror, Wolves have set a sixth place finish as their target ahead of their return to the Premier League this coming season.

On Wednesday 1st August, Chelsea will lock-horns with Premier League rivals Arsenal in Dublin, before facing Lyon at Stamford Bridge on August 7th.

It is a similar story for neighbours United, who begin at home to Leicester.

Nuno Espirito Santo's men won the Championship title at a canter this past season, dominating for most of the campaign and nearly notching up a century of points along the way.

Absolutely, it is the game before the season starts.

With the last two meetings between English football's two biggest clubs at Anfield ending in dismal 0-0 draws, it is to be hoped that December's clash on Merseyside produces more drama and goals.

They will play promoted Fulham at Wembley in their first home game of the season on the weekend of 18-19 August.

The Blues face a trip to Huddersfield as they look to regain their title, while Spurs will be travelling to Rafa Benitez's Newcastle to open their account. That hasn't, however, stopped the club preparing our pre-season plans.
