Chelsea to host Burnley in Premier League season opener

After a relatively low-key opening week the first major clash of the season pits the Premier League champions, Chelsea, against last season's runners-up, Spurs.

Chelsea kick-off the defence of their title against Burnley at Stamford Bridge on the weekend of August 12-13, while Spurs start away at Newcastle.

Chelsea against United will be a battle of the pragmatists as Antonio Conte takes on Jose Mourinho, while the Premier League's biggest idealists, Pep Guardiola and Arsene Wenger, face off in Manchester.

Newcastle's first away match will be a trip to the John Smiths Stadium to face fellow newly promoted side Huddersfield Town.

Following Tottenham vs Chelsea, the next big heavyweight contest of the campaign comes before the first worldwide break on 26 August when Liverpool take on Arsenal.

They struggled there in Europe last season and lost 4-2 to Chelsea there in the FA semi-final earlier this year.

Tottenham's visit has always been West Ham's "Cup Final" - according to Spurs fans, at least - and the Hammers' jubilant derailment of Spurs' title bids in the last two seasons has added more spice to this rivalry.

In a statement on their official website, the club said: "Our opening fixtures in August will be played away from home as London Stadium welcomes the 2017 IAAF World Athletics Championships for a once-in-a-generation occasion".

The first Manchester derby of the season will be taking place on 9 December at Old Trafford with the return fixture on 7 April at the Etihad Stadium.
