Liverpool the visitors for first game at new stadium

Lopetegui

Spurs to host Liverpool in first match at their new stadium as they start Premier League season at Wembley

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

The opening round of Premier League fixtures is completed by Southampton's clash with Burnley at St Mary's and Watford taking on Brighton & Hove Albion at Vicarage Road.

The Red Devils boss, who has managed in England for the majority of his career so far, believes the Three Lions can lift the World Cup this year due to the strength of the Premier League, where most of their players ply their trade.

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.

Indeed, the champions will face all of the three promoted teams in their opening six games before a hard August sees them take on Liverpool, Burnley and Tottenham Hotspur, all of whom finished in the top seven last season.

Mauricio Pochettino's will play their opening home game at Wembley against Fulham before facing Manchester United at Old Trafford in the opening month.

The reverse fixture could had seen City win the title against their rivals, however a second half resurgence from United saw City lose 3-2 with a Paul Pogba double and Chris Smalling goal overshadowing the first half performance.

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.

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.

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.
