Liverpool Schedule 2018-19: Premier League Fixtures Released

The final round of Premier League fixtures, scheduled for May 12, will see Manchester City away to Brighton, while Manchester United and Liverpool are at home to Cardiff and Wolves respectively.

Chelsea were long-established as the Premier League's opening-day specialists but last season suffered their first losing start this century, as Burnley kicked off a troubled season for Antonio Conte's defending champions, who had won 15 of their previous 18.

Premier League champions Manchester City will start their title defence at Arsenal.

After our mid-March trip to United, City's remaining seven opponents include two of the newly-promoted sides and just one side who finished in the 2017/18 top six - Tottenham, who will visit the Etihad Stadium on 20 April.

They begin their Premier League season at home to West Ham before facing Crystal Palace, Brighton and Leicester.

What has irked the Old Trafford boss so much this time around is not a tough run of fixtures for his own team, but rather the schedule handed out the his clubs arch rival Liverpool.

Securing their second fourth-place finish in succession was still a cause for some celebration, and it means they will enjoy back-to-back seasons in the UEFA Champions League for the first time since 2009-10.

"We shall be scheduling several events preceding our first Premier League game in the new stadium to check and rehearse various operational aspects".

A trip to Liverpool in early October will be followed by a visit to the new Spurs stadium later that month.

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. Arsenal and Chelsea only announced a preseason friendly in Dublin for August 1 on Wednesday, and they will meet again in the league just 17 days later.

The 2016-17 champions open up with a trip to Huddersfield Town and then face Newcastle, Bournemouth, Cardiff and West Ham in quick succession after hosting Arsenal.
