Brighton & Hove Albion start with home game against Manchester City

The Premier League has announced next season's fixtures

The Premier League has announced next season's fixtures

Newly promoted Newcastle host Tottenham, while Brighton welcome Manchester City and Huddersfield visit Crystal Palace.

As Rafa Benitez continues his preparations for Newcastle's return to the Premier League this coming season, one report coming from the Telegraph should perhaps be of interest to him.

The festive program is typically packed, with a full round of fixtures two days before Christmas.

The fans group raises the point that for fans of outer clubs such as Southampton, Brighton, Newcastle and Burnley among others, having to pay for five road league matches as well as all the transportation involved.

The last time Spurs visited the national stadium was in the FA Cup semi-final, a game they lost 4-2 to this season's first visitors - Chelsea. Guardiola and City later then meet champions Chelsea in London on 30th September.

"West Ham will be unable to play their first scheduled home game of the season against Southampton on 19 August because the London Stadium will not be ready after hosting this summer's World Athletics Championships", reports The Guardian. Jurgen Klopp must take his side to Merseyside rivals Everton, West Brom and champions Chelsea.

Iran leaders accuse US, Saudis of supporting Tehran attacks
The group says that the ruling monarchy uses Islam to hold on to its power and is not the true Islamic state it claims to be. The Revolutionary Guard Corps, meanwhile, has accused Saudi Arabia and the US of standing behind Wednesday's deadly attacks.

The final round of the Champions League group stage also takes place during that period, as traditionally does the fifth round of the League Cup.

The season will finish early due to an agreement with the FA to give England the best preparation for the World Cup in Russian Federation next summer and Arsenal face a tough end to the year. This season the first one comes during a challenging stretch for the Gunners, but Arsenal will be desperate for a win to reclaim some bragging rights after finishing below Spurs for the first time under Wenger.

"It will be nice, too, to come up against Chris Hughton and his Brighton side again this season".

The fixtures for the 2017/18 season have already been released.

Huddersfield, out of the top flight since 1972, face Chelsea, Everton, Manchester City and Arsenal in their last four matches, while Tottenham, Manchester United and Liverpool are the opponents in three of Brighton's final four games. They begin away against Crystal Palace. That represents the first of five away fixtures to follow European ties, including another hard trip to Manchester City, and making for a potentially hellish few weeks of traveling.
