Arsenal begin life after Arsene Wenger with a match against champions Manchester City, as the fixtures for the 2018/19 Premier League season were announced.

Unai Emery’s Gunners then face a trip to Chelsea on August 18 before a clash against West Ham on 25 August.

The Gunners tackle Spurs at Emirates Stadium on 1 December, with the return at the new White Hart Lane scheduled for March 2, while Arsenal face Brighton away on Boxing Day and then face a trip to Liverpool three days later. Emery’s men then host Fulham on New Year’s Day.

The season comes to a close with a match against Brighton at home on May 4 before a trip to face Burnley on May 12.
