Man City v Southampton
Newcastle v Tottenham

Wigan v Chelsea
Roberto Mancini's side play the south-coast outfit in a home tie at the Etihad Stadium, while last season's runners-up Manchester United travel to David Moyes' Everton and third-placed Arsenal host Sunderland.

Champions League winners Chelsea face an away trip to Wigan in their first game, with two of England manager Roy Hodgson's former clubs, West Brom and Liverpool, clashing at the Hawthorns in Brendan Rodgers' opening game as Reds boss.

Elsewhere, manager-less Tottenham start with a tough trip to the Sports Direct Arena where they play last season's surprise package Newcastle, and Michael Laudrup opens his account with Welsh side Swansea in London against QPR - who narrowly avoided relegation to the Championship on the final day of the last campaign.

Following their promotion from the Championship, Reading begin life back in the Premier League with a game against Stoke while another newly-promoted side, West Ham, take on Paul Lambert's Aston Villa at Upton Park.

Fulham, who finished ninth in England's top flight last term, have a home fixture with Norwich - who recently appointed Chris Hughton as their new manager.
