Jose Mourinho furious over Liverpool fixture list

BREAKING: Manchester City to start title defence at Arsenal

Premier League fixtures 2018-19: Unai Emery's Arsenal..Manchester City on opening day; United play Leicester

The Merseysiders will play each of their Premier League matches directly proceeding their six Champions League group games at home, while the rest of their rivals - United, Man City and Tottenham - have an even split of three away and three at home. No use in betting, games or single club/league/player publications.

Unai Emery's first competitive match in charge of the Gunners after replacing Arsene Wenger could hardly be any more daunting as the champions begin the defence of their crown at the Emirates Stadium.

The Champions League draw does not take place until August but that hasn't stopped Mourinho's annoyance according to The Times.

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.

Tottenham has three away games in its first four fixtures.

Jurgen Klopp's team beat City on three occasions last season, including the Premier League win in January which ended their hopes of going through a campaign unbeaten in the league.

It has been confirmed that Blues will make the trip to David Wagner's side before facing Arsenal the following week in their first home game of the season.

Newcastle face Tottenham (3rd), Cardiff (19th), Chelsea (5th), Man City (1st), Arsenal (6th) and Crystal Palace (11th).

And the Spaniard has been given a testing opening to Premier League management.

Perhaps the most eagerly anticipated game next season will not be the Manchester derby, but the first clash between City and Liverpool at Anfield on October 6.

The redeveloped White Hart Lane will not be ready for the start of the season, so their first home game against the Cottagers will be played at the national stadium.

Jose Mourinho will then welcome Pep Guardiola to Old Trafford on March 16.
