Premier League Fixtures Released: Chelsea Host Burnley And Spurs To Visit Newcastle On The Opening Day!
The league is set to finish on Sunday 13 May 2018, a week earlier than last season, with the World Cup finals in Russia starting on 14 June.
The English Football League fixtures will be released on 21 June and Scotland’s fixtures two days later.
There’s a cracking weekend of derby action in early December and the usual busy festive period to look forward to as well.
English football’s top-flight sides will face four league games in nine days over Christmas and new year, with eight games in total from 2 December to 1 January.
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.
Arsenal welcome Liverpool two days before Christmas, while Brighton go to Chelsea on Boxing Day and Newcastle host Manchester City.
West Ham make the trip across London to face Tottenham in the round of games scheduled for 30 December, with another London derby taking place on New Year’s Day as Arsenal host Chelsea.
There are 2,036 matches across the Premier League and Football League over a nine-month period.
