Share

The Gunners open against Leicester City before three away games in four fixtures against Stoke City, Liverpool and Chelsea, who visit Emirates Stadium in the on January 1.

City is also away to champions Chelsea on September 30 in just its seventh match of the season, while the first Manchester derby of the campaign is at Old Trafford on December 9.

Speaking of the Gunners, Arsenal are renowned for suffering a dip in form at the turn of the year - and with games against Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester City coming around that period Arsene Wenger will be hoping this is the year they can break the curse.

In a seven-week span from February 24 to April 14, five of City's matches come against teams who competed near the top of the table last season - Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

Although Newcastle's run-in appears less intimidating, they do not get off lightly on the final day - with Chelsea the visitors to St James' Park.

The challenge for Burnley is even greater as the champions have not lost on the opening day of the Premier League since going down to Coventry in 1998.

But the national stadium is hosting rugby league's Challenge Cup final on the same day that Burnley are due for Spurs' second home fixture.

Tottenham meanwhile play Antonio Conte's men for the second time in the league at the end of March, and if this season is anything like the last that fixture could prove pivotal.

Tottenham finish at home to Leicester, Manchester United host Watford, Manchester City are at Southampton and West Ham take on Everton.
