City will start the defence of their Premier League title away at Arsenal on the opening weekend of the 2018/19 season. City won the corresponding fixture 3-0 last season, and it is a daunting start for new Gunners boss Unai Emery.

City's first home game is against Huddersfield Town, followed by a trip to newly promoted Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The first Manchester derby will take place at The Etihad on November 10th, with the return fixture at Old Trafford scheduled for March 16th.

The Blues end the season with a trip to the Amex Stadium to face Brighton & Hove Albion.

All fixtures are subject to change, with the first games selected for TV coverage set to be announced in early July.
