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).

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
