Leicester City Travel To Manchester United In 2018/19 Premier League Opener

Man City celebrate their title success last season

Man City celebrate their title success last season

The league starts at the scandalously early date of Saturday, August 11 but the games will be spaced out so that there will only be four games played by the start of September [no midweek league fixtures].

Some have predicted a long unbeaten start to the campaign for Manchester United and believe Mourinho's men need to hit the ground running if they have wrestle away the title from local rivals Manchester City next season.

City will then take on Huddersfield Town in their first home game of the season, before rounding off August with a trip to newly-promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Liverpool, the losing Champions League finalists, appear to have the toughest start of any of the likely title-contenders.

Liverpool will be Tottenham Hotspur's first opponents at their new stadium.

Now the attention turns towards the summer, and the players who could be moving clubs ahead of the 2018-19 season. After the Gunners host the champions, the team now managed by Emery are at Chelsea.

Perhaps the most eagerly anticipated game next season will not be the Manchester derby, but the first clash between City and Liverpool at Anfield on October 6.

Cardiff travel to Bournemouth on their return to the top flight, while there will be an all Portuguese affair at Molineux as Nuno Espirito Santo's Wolves are at home to Marco Silva's Everton.

Manchester United starts at home to Leicester and plays only one of last season's top six - Tottenham - in its first eight games.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are more fancied than Manchester United to triumph but neither team are favourites to win the Premier League.
