Arsenal and Chelsea to head for Dublin for International Champions Cup fixture

Premier League champions Manchester City will begin their title defence away to Arsenal on the weekend of August 11-12, the English Premier League announced Thursday as it unveiled the fixtures for the 2018/19 season.

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. Games against newly-promoted trio Wolves, Cardiff and Fulham are part of a sequence which also includes Huddersfield, Newcastle and Brighton - the three teams who came up the previous season.

Manchester United will be determined to catch their neighbours - who romped home to the title last term with a 100-point tally - and Jose Mourinho and co will begin that pursuit at home to Leicester.

"It will be great for the fans of both clubs as with the game being played so close to the start of the new season, I think we can expect that both managers will bring as strong a squad as possible to Dublin for this game".

It was always going to be a tough couple of days in the House of Commons for Theresa May's government and her Brexit strategy. It would also give hard Brexiteers the chance to "scupper a good deal", she claimed.

This is first time a club has been allowed to play home games at two venues in the same season.

New boss Unai Emery has been given the proverbial baptism of fire with his Gunners to host champions Manchester City before travelling to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea.

During the opening six fixtures, City are due to play all three promoted teams, handing Guardiola's men the flawless opportunity to make another strong start to the season.

Absolutely, it is the game before the season starts.
