20. Stoke- 1.9

Premier League champions Manchester City will begin their title defence away to Arsenal on the weekend of August 11-12, the English Premier League announced Thursday as it unveiled the fixtures for the 2018/19 season.

Jürgen Klopp's side will also take on their other great rivals Manchester United at home first, the Anfield edition of that fixture coming on December 15, with a trip to Old Trafford following on February 23.

United, who begin their season at home to Leicester City, were the only team to claim three points at the Etihad against Guardiola's champions last season, with Paul Pogba inspiring the visitors to a 3-2 victory in April having trailed 2-0 at half-time.

Oh yes, and Mikel Arteta will be on the touchline at the Emirates Stadium at the start of the new season after all...
