Premier League fixtures: Arsenal handed another nightmare start with Liverpool and Tottenham clashes in August

The Gunners play Liverpool at Anfield before hosting Tottenham in the north London derby in their fourth game of the new campaign.

Unai Emery has been handed another nightmare start to a Premier League campaign with games against Liverpool and Tottenham in Arsenal’s opening four matches of the 2019/20 season.

The Spaniard began life in the Premier League with games against Manchester City and Chelsea last season, losing both, and has been given a similarly tough run to start his second season in charge.

Arsenal commence the season with a trip to St James’ Park to face Rafa Benitez’s Newcastle on Sunday August 11th at 2pm before hosting Burnley in their first home match the following weekend.

And it doesn’t get any easier for the last season's Europa League runners-up, with a trip to Champions League holders Liverpool up next before the first north London derby of the season against Tottenham to round off August.

The first Premier League match of the 2019/20 season sees Liverpool hosting newly-promoted Norwich on Friday evening as Jurgen Klopp’s men look to go one better than last season’s second-placed finish.

Manchester City begin their search for a third successive Premier League title with a visit to West Ham’s London Stadium on Saturday at 12.30pm in a match broadcast exclusively live on BT Sport.

Tottenham play host to Aston Villa on Saturday’s late kick-off while City’s rivals Manchester United are handed the daunting task of hosting Chelsea to begin their season on Sunday afternoon.

Elsewhere Sheffield United, last season’s Championship runners-up, go to Bournemouth, Wolves travel across the midlands to face Leicester and Crystal Palace host Everton at Selhurst Park.

Burnley's meeting with Southampton at Turf Moor and Watford's home clash with Brighton round off the other opening-weekend fixtures for the Premier League 2019/20 campaign.

Champions City are in action at home to Tottenham, the side they lost to over two legs in the Champions League quarter-finals, in the pick of the second matchday fixtures.

After facing Liverpool and Tottenham, it gets slightly easier for Arsenal but Gunners fans will be wary of a tough run from mid-December to New Year’s Day.

The five games between December 21st and January 1st sees Emery’s men play Everton, Bournemouth, City, Chelsea and United as Arsenal close out 2019 with some tough tests.

Having picked up just four points from their final five matches last campaign, Arsenal will be hoping they can fare considerably better from this season’s run-in – against Leicester, Tottenham, Liverpool, Villa and Watford.

City and Liverpool set the league alight last season, amassing 98 and 97 points respectively and 195 points combined – a top-flight record for champions and runners-up.

And they meet for the first time on November 9th at Anfield before the return fixture at the Etihad on April 4th in what could be a crucial match in the Premier League title race.

The first Manchester derby of the season comes on December 7th at the Etihad with the Old Trafford fixture on March 7th. The Merseyside derbies between Liverpool and Everton take place on December 12th at Anfield and on March 14th at Goodison Park.

It’s a tricky run-in for Klopp’s men - who collected nine wins from their final nine games last season. The Reds play Arsenal away, Chelsea at home and Newcastle away in their last three games of the new campaign.

Perhaps the nastiest run for any side comes with Everton’s set of festive fixtures however. Marco Silva’s side play Liverpool, Chelsea, United and Arsenal in successive matches during December.

BT Sport will be broadcasting more Premier League fixtures than ever next season with 52 matches shown exclusively live from the best league in world football – 10 more than last campaign.
