North London rivals Arsenal face a tough first two games without Arsene Wenger.

The Reds are looking to build on a stunning season and have added a number of fresh faces as they look to challenge for the Premier League title.

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.

Liverpool's Premier League campaign for 2018-19 will get under way with a home fixture against West Ham United.

It is a similar story for neighbours United, who begin at home to Leicester.

But City, who ended United's long unbeaten run at Old Trafford with a 2-1 win last December, will travel to Old Trafford on March 16 believing that they can take huge step towards retaining their title with another win on enemy territory.

The Reds are set to kickstart their league season at Anfield for the first time since 2014-15 having been scheduled to face Manuel Pellegrini's team on August 11.

Spurs' new ground is close to completion but will not be ready for the start of the Premier League season. After the Gunners host the champions, the team now managed by Emery are at Chelsea.

Liverpool's start appears more challenging.

City, who amassed 100 points and 106 goals en route to finishing 19 points clear of Manchester United in 2017/18, do not face another top six side until the trip to Liverpool in October.

Tottenham, who have until Friday to decide whether to return to Wembley next season while work on their new stadium is completed, have been given an away opener - starting their second successive campaign at Newcastle.

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.

Chelsea, who remain in a state of flux with question marks over their owner, manager and star players, have been handed a low-key start to the season, aside from the early meeting with Arsenal.
