Man City fixtures 2018-19 revealed as Premier League champions begin defence against Arsenal

Premier League champions Manchester City will begin the defence of their crown against Arsenal in August.

City’s fixtures for the 2018-19 season were revealed by the Premier League at 9am on Thursday morning, as Pep Guardiola will look to build on his success last season after finishing a staggering 19 points ahead of nearest rivals Man Utd.

Guardiola’s men face their first member of the Big Six in August when Arsenal provide the opposition in Unai Emery’s first game in charge of the Gunners.

Local rivals Manchester United visit the Etihad Stadium in November, while City go to Old Trafford in March.

City end the Premier League season against Brighton in May.

Before the real stuff kicks off City have some high-profile friendly games in America where they play Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool and Bayern Munich in July.

City won two trophies last season and they will be hoping to start the new campaign by picking up another piece of silverware when they meet Chelsea in the Community Shield at Wembley a week before the Premier League begins.

Premier League fixtures are subject to change, with dates likely to be tweaked in mid-July when the first round of TV games are confirmed.
