Everton to play all other Premier League sides twice next season

Everton to play all other Premier League sides twice next season

The fixture will be Unai Emery's first competitive match as Gunners manager.

Cardiff start at Bournemouth while Fulham, who secured their place in the top flight via a Wembley play-off final win over Aston Villa start the league season at home to Crystal Palace.

That game against Liverpool comes three days before matchday one of the Champions League, meaning Spurs will definitely play their group stage matches at their new home. The 2017/18 runners-up have Tottenham at home in their third game, with Brighton, Burnley, Watford, Wolves, West Ham and Newcastle are their other early season opponents.

Arsenal come up against Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium on November 3 before the the Spaniard's maiden north London derby against Tottenham on December 1.

Following the Arsenal game, City do not face another top-six team until they are away to Liverpool - who beat Pep Guardiola's men in the quarter-finals of the Champions League last season - in October.

Liverpool's pre-Europe travels The Premier League has released dates for all 380 matches, but none have been allotted kick-off times as broadcasters are yet to decide which games will be televised. Arsenal and Tottenham will be at the Emirates on the weekend of December 1, with the return on March 2.

Liverpool will be the first visitors to the yet-to-be-named stadium on the weekend of September 15-16, the club confirmed.

Tottenham make the trip to Tyneside to play Newcastle United, while Chelsea go to Huddersfield and Manchester United host Leicester City.

Given the game's proximity to the beginning of the season, Ray Parlour said he was that confident both sides in Dublin would be close to full strength.

Few supporters will relish the new campaign more than those of Wolves, Cardiff City and Fulham, who all return to the Premier League from the Championship.
