Chelsea 1st to visit Tottenham at Wembley in Premier League

Eddie Howe

In response, the Premier League could offer up to 200 live games a season in order to encourage another bumper payday from the broadcasters that ensures its clubs maintain their status as Europe's most financially powerful.

There are back-to-back games against Arsenal (away) and Manchester City (home) on December 2 and December 9 respectively, while their away games against Everton and Spurs come in January.

The Blues welcome Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho back to Stamford Bridge on November 4 and have a hard start to 2018 as they visit Arsenal, while a home clash with Liverpool in the penultimate outing of the season could prove pivotal in deciding the title.

So it's Leicester at home on the opening day...

Liverpool at Anfield is always a big game for United, but this one will be particularly significant. An early victory at another of the top six sides would be a statement of intent.

Tottenham have been handed a tough opening to the 2017/18 Premier League season. The return leg at Stamford Bridge, where Spurs still have not won since 1990, falls on the final day of March, and could have huge implications for the title race.

The final game of the season is a trip to Leicester City on May 5.

Arsenal, whose manager Arsene Wenger will be firmly in the sights of the disgruntled Gunners fans who didn't wanted him to sign a new contract, face a tricky trip to Chelsea the weekend after.

Chelsea are the reigning champions, while Newcastle were also promoted from the Championship last season. Mourinho insists Chelsea's defence will be different with Champions League football to contend with, as well. The Hornets can make it 11 successive curtain-raisers without defeat when they host Liverpool, having last lost one when they travelled to Everton at the start of 2006/07.

Europa League winners Manchester United kick off on their own turn in a meeting with West Ham and Liverpool are away to Marco Silva's Watford.
