Manchester City to start title defence at Arsenal

Ignazio Abate of AC Milan in action during the serie A match between AC Milan and Hellas Verona FC at Stadio Giuseppe Meazza

The 2018-19 fixtures, announced on Thursday morning, handed Pep Guardiola's record-breaking team an Emirates Stadium opener on the weekend of August 11/12.

Leicester City's first game at King Power Stadium comes a week later on Saturday 18 August, when newly-promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers visit King Power Stadium for the first time since 2013.

And he will face a baptism of fire in his very first game in charge, with none other than champions Manchester City up first at home on the opening day of 2018/19.

"It will be great for the fans of both clubs as with the game being played so close to the start of the new season, I think we can expect that both managers will bring as strong a squad as possible to Dublin for this game". Arsene Wenger used to give the players four weeks off at least, but it is a new era for Arsenal with a new coach coming into the club.

That said, Musk claims Tesla will soon be rolling out yet another update created to help users avoid the alerts entirely. Tesla shares rose 2.5 percent to $340.34 in afternoon trading, after reaching as high as $354.97 around noon.

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.

The 2016-17 champions open up with a trip to Huddersfield Town and then face Newcastle, Bournemouth, Cardiff and West Ham in quick succession after hosting Arsenal.

Spurs had been due to host Watford on 1 September, but the Hornets agreed to swap the fixture's venue to Vicarage Road.

It's going to be a tasty start to the season.
