The top flight fixtures have been released and the bookmakers have priced up all of the opening matches including Arsenal's clash with Leicester City

Premier League clubs can now start planning for the 2017-18 season after the season's fixtures were confirmed.

bet365 have priced up each of the opening game week’s matches and many of the leading title contenders are heavy favourites to get off to a winning start.

Arsenal are 2/5 (1.40) to beat Leicester City at the Emirates. Both Craig Shakespeare and Arsene Wenger have signed new contracts at their respective sides but it's the Gunners who are red-hot favourites.


The away side are on a 21-game winless run against the North London club, while Arsenal have won the last 10 consecutive head-to-head matches, so history suggests it'll be a tough time for the new Foxes boss.

Manchester City, who are just 15/8 (2.88) to win the title after some early moves in the transfer market, are 4/11 (1.36) to get off and running with three points on the south coast as they visit newly promoted Brighton.

City have won their last six opening day fixtures, the current best run in the competition.

Chelsea are the shortest price on offer at just 1/6 (1.18) as they host a Burnley side who are one of the sides towards the head of the relegation market. At 54, the Blues have more points on the opening day of the season than any other Premier League team.


Manchester United host West Ham at Old Trafford and bet365 are 1/3 (1.33) that Jose Mourinho's men pick up maximum points on home soil. Three of the last five matches between these sides have ended all square and that's a a 7/2 (4.50) shot.

Newcastle's first match back in the top flight sees the Magpies host Tottenham, who may be relieved to kick off their campaign away from Wembley. The visitors are 4/6 (1.67) while Rafa Benitez's side, who won the Championship last term, are on offer at 4/1 (5.0).

Liverpool are likely to be busy in the transfer market too, and the Reds are 4/7 (1.57) to get the better of a Watford side now under the stewardship of Marco Silva.

The Hornets have yet to record an opening day Premier League win, losing two and drawing twice.
