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

The Premier League has announced its fixtures and provisional dates for the 2018/19 season.

And the key fixtures remain the first that demand the attention, with the titanic battles between the main title challengers always primed to be pivotal dates in the calendar.

It is a similar story for neighbours United, who begin at home to Leicester.

Liverpool face Manchester City on 26 July in the United States, then face Manchester United two days later.

It's going to be a tasty start to the season.


Sky Sports is reporting that both of the London clubs are keen on a move to bring the 26-year-old to the Premier League this summer, with Manchester City also interested in a deal.

The traditional Premier League 'Clasico' between Liverpool and United is due to be staged at Anfield on December 15, with the return taking place at Old Trafford on February 23.

Arsenal will take on Chelsea at the Aviva Stadium on Wednesday, August 1 as part of the International Champions Cup.

Meanwhile, some Spurs supporters were frustrated after discovering that their first home game at their new stadium will not take place until the middle of September.

Antonio Conte's Blues travel to Huddersfield on the opening day and after the trip to Arsenal come Newcastle, Bournemouth, Cardiff, West Ham, Liverpool and Southampton.
