Manchester City Premier League title 2017-18
The reigning champions will start their 2018-19 campaign at the Emirates, where new Gunners manager Unai Emery will be hoping to start with a win

Unai Emery faces a baptism of fire in his first Premier League match as Arsenal host Manchester City on the opening weekend of the 2018-19 season.

The full fixtures were released on Thursday morning and also see Manchester United welcome Leicester City to Old Trafford, whilst West Ham travel to Liverpool.

dabblebet have priced the reigning champions – who are just 4/6 (1.67) to retain their crown - as 10/11 (1.91) favourites to claim three points from their trip to the Emirates Stadium, with the Gunners out at 11/4 (3.75).

The red half of Manchester will begin their season with a tough test in the shape of the Foxes, but will be confident of claiming a fourth league victory in five matches over Claude Puel's side.

Jose Mourinho’s outfit are just 2/5 (1.40) to open the season with a win, whilst the visitors can be backed at 15/2 (8.50).

Liverpool should have few problems seeing off a West Ham side they beat 4-1 twice last term and can be backed at just 2/7 (1.28) to win again, with the Hammers out at 15/2 (8.50).

Tottenham begin with a tough away trip to Newcastle and are 4/5 (1.80) in the 1X2 market, with the Magpies 10/3 (4.33).

Chelsea lost their opening game last season when they were beaten 3-2 at home by Burnley and an away trip to Huddersfield this time around will make them wary of a repeat.

Despite that, they are 1/2 (1.50) to get their season off to a winning start, whilst west London rivals Fulham – who won the play-off final in May – are 6/5 (2.20) to beat Crystal Palace at Craven Cottage.

Championship winners Wolves are also 6/5 (2.20) as they welcome Everton to Molineux, with Cardiff City, who complete the promoted trio, 10/3 (4.33) to win at Bournemouth on the opening weekend.
