The Reds are looking to build on a stunning season and have added a number of fresh faces as they look to challenge for the Premier League title.

Unai Emery faces a baptism of fire as Arsenal manager after the Premier League fixture computer handed the Spaniard clashes against Manchester City and Chelsea in his first two competitive games since succeeding Arsene Wenger at the Emirates.

And the key fixtures remain the first that demand the attention, with the titanic battles between the main title challengers always primed to be pivotal dates in the calendar.

Liverpool will host the first Merseyside derby of the season on December 1, with the return fixture at Everton's Goodison Park slated for March 2.

Spurs' new ground is close to completion but will not be ready for the start of the Premier League season.

City, who amassed 100 points and 106 goals en route to finishing 19 points clear of Manchester United in 2017/18, do not face another top six side until the trip to Liverpool in October.

Tottenham, who will join City, United and Liverpool in the Champions League next season, begin their campaign at Newcastle for the second successive season before hosting Fulham a week later.

Spurs are due to move back to their rebuilt home on the site of White Hart Lane for the new season, with Fulham their first scheduled visitors on the weekend of August 18/19.

Claude Puel's men then head to Southampton, host Liverpool and travel south to face AFC Bournemouth before a home clash with Huddersfield Town completes their opening six games.
