Jose Mourinho angry with Premier League about Liverpool FC fixture list

During the opening six fixtures, City are due to play all three promoted teams, handing Guardiola's men the ideal opportunity to make another strong start to the season.

And the Spaniard has been given a testing opening to Premier League management.

Prior to matchday two in the Champions League set for either October 2 or October 3, Liverpool will play Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Excited Arsenal fans were brought back down to earth with a bump after seeing the 2018-19 Premier League fixtures on Thursday morning.

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

The season is scheduled to get start on the weekend of 11 and 12 August and will conclude on Sunday May 12, 2019, with City hopefully replicating their success under Pep Guardiola.

The first Manchester derby takes place at City's Etihad Stadium on November 10, with the second at Old Trafford on March 16.

The reverse fixture could had seen City win the title against their rivals, however a second half resurgence from United saw City lose 3-2 with a Paul Pogba double and Chris Smalling goal overshadowing the first half performance.

Liverpool are at home to Manchester United on December 15 before making the return trip on February 23.

However, the subsequent three will see United travel to the Etihad to take on champions Man City, St Mary's to take on Southampton and Anfield to face Liverpool.

Spurs made the journey across north London to the national stadium last term while their successor ground to White Hart Lane was being built.

But despite the ease or difficulty of a team's early fixtures, the reality that all the clubs face next season is that City will once again be the side to beat.
