With all teams starting on equal standing, fans' eyes will inevitably be drawn to the opening day of fixtures on August 11th. There are a number of intriguing matches to set a benchmark in the 2018/19 season, most notably champions Manchester City taking on Arsenal at the Emirates, while newly promoted Wolves face a testing clash with Everton at Molineux.
Unai Emery's start as Arsenal manager won't get any easier, either. After hosting the Champions on the opening day, they travel to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea. His first North London derby will come on the 1st of December at the Emirates.
On the same day, Liverpool and Everton will come up against each other at Anfield, in the first Merseyside Derby. Meanwhile, the Manchester Derby will be held three weeks before at the Etihad, on the 10th of November.
City will undoubtedly be pleased with their start. Following their admittedly tough clash with Arsenal, they will go on a run of six games in which they will face the three promoted sides alongside Newcastle, Brighton and Huddersfield.
United won't be complaining either, with Leicester City, Brighton, Burnley, Watford, Wolves, West Ham and Newcastle making up seven of their eight opening games - Spurs being the one caveat, on their third matchday.
Liverpool will be happy with their opening three of West Ham, Crystal Palace and Brighton, before a tough Autumn period will see them play Spurs, Chelsea and Manchester City in the space of three weeks.
It is understood that Spurs will not bless their new Stadium until this clash with Liverpool on September 15th. In lieu of that, three of their first four games will be away from home, against Newcastle, Manchester United and Watford - with a home game at Wembley versus Fulham on the second gameweek.
