English Premier League 2017/18 Fixtures Released

The English Premier League season will kick-off on August 12th.
Chelsea will begin their title defence at home to Burnley on the weekend of 12-13 August.

The full list of fixtures was released on Wednesday with Antonio Conte's side also slated for a follow-up game at Tottenham Hotspur, who will play all their home fixtures at Wembley while White Hart Lane is being redeveloped.

The Blues will face Everton, Arsenal, and Manchester City within their first 7 games of the season.

Manchester City travel to newly promoted Brighton and Hove Albion on the opening weekend.

Pep Guardiola's men will face Everton, Manchester United, Spurs, and West Ham within their final 7 matches.

Meanwhile, Manchester United play West Ham United at Old Trafford. The Red Devils first big challenge of the season comes up on Saturday, 14th of October, when they face Liverpool.

Liverpool take on Watford, under the new management of Marco Silva, at Vicarage Road.

For Arsenal, they will face Leicester City on the opening day of the EPL season, with the hope of getting back into the top four next season after missing out on a Champions League place in 2016/17.

But the Gunners' February Flop is a yearly occurrence and this season they play Everton, Spurs, and City in a crucial month. Hope the curse will be broken this time around!

Arsene Wenger's men don't have the easiest start to 2017/18, with a trip to Stamford Bridge coming up in September, and back-to-back games against Manchester City and Tottenham in November.

The other Premier League newcomers Huddersfield Town will play their first top-flight game in 45 years at Crystal Palace.

The first Manchester derby will be at Old Trafford on December 9, the same weekend as the Merseyside derby at Anfield.

On Boxing Day, Chelsea are at home to Brighton, Liverpool take on Swansea at Anfield, United host Burnley and Tottenham play Southampton at Wembley. Manchester City travel to Newcastle. There are then fixtures on Dec. 30 and Jan. 1 with Arsenal vs. Chelsea and Everton vs. United the highlights on New Year's Day.
