Emery handed Premier League debut against Guardiola's City

The opening day records of Premier League clubs

BREAKING: Manchester City to start title defence at Arsenal

They begin their Premier League season at home to West Ham before facing Crystal Palace, Brighton and Leicester.

However, the Reds are still some way from being a Premier League-winning outfit.

Emery has succeeded Arsene Wenger, who left Arsenal after 22 years in charge. Arsenal and Tottenham will be at the Emirates on the weekend of December 1, with the return on March 2.

Southampton host Burnley on the opening day.

Securing their second fourth-place finish in succession was still a cause for some celebration, and it means they will enjoy back-to-back seasons in the UEFA Champions League for the first time since 2009-10.

Liverpool have been handed six home games directly after UCL fixtures, whereas Man United, Man City and Spurs have all been scheduled with a split three home and three away games.

It doesn't get any easier for Emery, either, with Arsenal's second game of the season away against London rivals Chelsea, while Pep's City host Huddersfield.

Liverpool will be the first visitors to the yet-to-be-named stadium on the weekend of September 15-16, the club confirmed.

The first Manchester derby, which will pit last season's top two against each other, is due to take place on November 10 when Jose Mourinho's United make the short jounrey across town.

City claimed a 100% record against Arsenal and Chelsea last season with our 1-0 triumph at Stamford Bridge a stand-out victory and performance.

The Spaniard will come face to face with fellow Spaniard Pep Guardiola on the opening day and after a trip to Chelsea he has another London derby with West Ham United the visitors.

As run-ins go (and without tempting fate!), on paper, that one is fairly kind.
