Arsenal boss Unai Emery has been handed a horror start to his reign at the club with games against Manchester City and Chelsea.

He told the club's official website: "We are so excited to have the date of the first Premier League match at our new stadium".

The Gunners will take on the champions at the Emirates on the opening weekend of the season, which takes place on August 11, before then travelling to Stamford Bridge for a London derby in their second game.

But Liverpool have now gone 28 seasons without winning the title in the English top flight, and they have only genuinely competed for the Premier League once in the last decade.

Emery will have little time to prepare for a trip to Manchester United (December 4).

Cardiff start at Bournemouth and have Newcastle at home and Huddersfield away, before the visit of Arsenal.

City have seven league games (plus the final Champions League group match and a potential Carabao Cup encounter), kicking off with Bournemouth at home on 1 December.

Arsenal will have home advantage during their first north London derby of the season with Mauricio Pochettino's men before travelling to the new White Hart Lane at the beginning of March.

Jose Mourinho's side face Brighton and Hove Albion, Burnley, Watford and Wolves in other early-season games. That includes trips to Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham.

Among the final round of matches, scheduled for May 12, Manchester City are at Brighton - where they started last season - while Cardiff and Wolves are at Manchester United and Liverpool respectively.

The pair are among six Premier League clubs in the competition, with Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham and Liverpool also competing.
