Champions Chelsea will start the 2017-18 Premier League season at home to Burnley, while Manchester United will welcome West Ham United to Old Trafford on the opening weekend.

On Boxing Day, Chelsea are at home to Brighton, Liverpool take on Swansea at Anfield, United host Burnley and Tottenham play Southampton at Wembley.

Pep Guardiola's men were favourites too last season, but failed to keep pace as Chelsea won it under new manager, Antonio Conte.

And the club had to put out a tweet just 14 minutes after the FA released next season's fixtures, saying that their home game with Burnley on August 26 will have to be rearranged due to the rugby.

There are also plenty of significant fixtures following Champions League games, with Chelsea vs. Arsenal, Chelsea vs. City, Chelsea vs.

"After Spurs I think then we have a good run of games and I'm pleased to see it's quite a balanced list in terms of the teams we're up against".

- Sergio Aguero has five goals in six previous opening day matches for Manchester City.

In the second week of the season, Tottenham play at Wembley for the first time in the Premier League, having played their European matches there last season, and welcome Chelsea to their new home. They then face Jurgen Klopp's side again at Old Trafford on 10 March.

There will be a typically intense schedule of games over the Christmas period, with teams potentially facing four matches in nine days from December 23-Jan. 1.

Manchester City's run-in begins with tricky clashes against Manchester United and Tottenham, while they must also travel to West Ham and Southampton after that. For David Wagner's Huddersfield, it is Manchester City in game 37, followed by a visit from Arsenal to finish.

Our first home game of the year will come against newly-promoted minnows Huddersfield Town on September the 9th, with the first London derby coming two weeks later against Spurs on September the 23rd.

United's first major test of the campaign comes on October 14 when they travel to Anfield.

Their first north London derby of the season comes at Emirates Stadium on November 18, while a return fixture with Liverpool on December 23 is sure to have an impact on how much festive cheer the Gunners can enjoy.
