The north London side will host the defending Premier League champions in their top-flight opener on 11 August as they look to start their stint under new boss Unai Emery on a positive note.

The home fixture against the Reds follows Matchday Four of the Champions League (6/7 November), while the return derby takes place after the Round of 16 knock-out stages (5/6 or 12/13 March).

Liverpool's pre-Europe travels The Premier League has released dates for all 380 matches, but none have been allotted kick-off times as broadcasters are yet to decide which games will be televised.

They finished 25 points behind champions Manchester City in 2017-18, and while the Sky Blues enjoyed a record-breaking campaign, Liverpool's points tally of 75 would only have been good enough for fifth the season before.

Promoted Fulham host Crystal Palace, while Cardiff visit Bournemouth.




While Pep Guardiola and Maurico Pochettino are said to be unconcerned by the situation, The Times report that Mourinho is angry with the Premier League and their decision-making process.

Arsenal will begin proceedings by hosting the reigning champions at the Emirates before travelling to Stamford Bridge the following weekend. Oof.

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.

Sky Sports have ranked all 20 clubs in terms of who has the most hard set of fixtures to open the 2018/19 season.

Few supporters will relish the new campaign more than those of Wolves, Cardiff City and Fulham, who all return to the Premier League from the Championship.

Jose Mourinho is furious about the scheduling of some of Liverpool's Premier League games next season. That includes trips to Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham.
