— Premier League (@premierleague) June 15, 2016
The Premier League fixtures for the upcoming 2016-17 season have now been released.
The Premier League season will begin with a big game from the start, as Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal will take on Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool at the Emirates in Matchweek 1. Jose Mourinho will start his Manchester United career in the Premier League with an away trip to AFC Bournemouth, whereas Conte and Guardiola will both begin their careers in England at their respective homes, with Chelsea facing West Ham and City going against Sunderland.
Leicester City will begin their title defence in an away game against the Tigers, and in the following Matchweek 2, the champions will take on Arsenal.
With no notable big games in Matchweek 3, Matchweek 4 will perhaps feature arguably the biggest game of the season, with Mourinho’s Manchester United taking on Guardiola’s Manchester City at the Theatre of Dreams. The same week will also see the Foxes host Liverpool.
Chelsea will take on Liverpool at home in Matchweek 5, and then go away to Arsenal in Matchweek 6, in what will be two successive tough tests for Conte. Matchweek 6 will also see the record 20-time English champions host the reigning English champions at Old Trafford.
In Matchweek 8, we will witness two of the biggest teams in England face off, as Liverpool will play Manchester United at Anfield. The Blues will host two back-to-back big games at the Bridge, with the Foxes visiting them in Matchweek 8 and the Red Devils in Matchweek 9.
The North London Derby between Arsenal and Tottenham will be played in Matchweek 11 at the Emirates, following which the Gunners will head to Manchester United for an ever-so-controversial encounter between Wenger and Mourinho in Matchweek 12.
Chelsea will host their London rivals Tottenham in Matchweek 13, and then go on to face Pep Guardiola’s men in Matchweek 14. The Citizens will then head to the King Power Stadium in Matchweek 15, to lock horns with the Champions.
Pep Guardiola will then take on Arsene Wenger once again, but this time at the Etihad, in Matchweek 17.
In the 19th Matchweek, Klopp and Guardiola will relive their Bundesliga rivalry as Liverpool will host City at Anfield.
The first two massive games of the second half of the Premier League season will come in Matchweek 21, where the reigning English champs will take on the champs of the year before, and Liverpool will travel to Manchester United for the second round of their cracking rivalry.
Chelsea will take a trip to Anfield in Matchweek 23, and then host Arsenal just three days later, in Matchweek 24. The same week will also see the Foxes play Manchester United.
The second Manchester Derby of the season will be played in Matchweek 26, wherein Leicester will also take on Liverpool. Klopp’s men will then host the Gunners in Matchweek 27.
The Citizens will play Liverpool at the Etihad in Matchweek 29, and in the following Matchweek 30, will visit the Emirates. Matchweek 30 will also consist of the second Merseyside Derby at Anfield.
Matchweek 31 will include Chelsea vs Manchester City, and Matchweek 33 will have Conte’s men travel to Manchester yet again, where the Blues will take on their former boss at his new home.
Arsenal will face arch rivals Spurs at White Hart Lane on Matchweek 35, and then return home to face the Red Devils on Matchweek 36.
The final big game of the season (on paper) will be between Guardiola’s Manchester City and Ranieri’s Leicester City at the Etihad in Matchweek 37.
