Arsenal 2012-13 Premier League fixtures in full

The Gunners kick off their campaign at home to the Black Cats on August 18, with the first North London derby scheduled for November 17 at the Emirates Stadium
Arsenal begin their 2012-13 Premier League season with a home fixture against Martin O'Neill's Sunderland.

After last season's dismal opening few matches - which included the 8-2 thrashing at Old Trafford - Arsene Wenger will be keen for his side to start strongly in their opening two fixtures in August before a daunting-looking run of games in September.

The first North London derby will be contested on November 17 at the Emirates, with the reverse fixture at White Hart Lane taking place on March 2.

The Gunners complete their campaign against another north-east side, as they visit Newcastle on May 19 next year.
