Paul Lambert with last season's top scorer Christian Benteke

Paul Lambert with last season's top scorer Christian Benteke

Paul Lambert's men go to the Emirates first up, before hosting Liverpool in the first home game of the new campaign.

A trip to Jose Mourinho's Chelsea follows, before a home match with Newcastle.

Newly-promoted Crystal Palace are the visitors on Boxing Day, while there is a trip to Sunderland on New Year's Day.

They play Manchester United Old Trafford late in the season, March 29, but otherwise Lambert will not be too disappointed with the run-in.

The last six games see them host Fulham (April 5), Southampton (April 19) and Hull (May 3) with trips to Palace (April 12), Swansea (April 26) and - on the final day of the season - Spurs (May 11).

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
