City meets Newcastle on opening day

Manchester city

Manchester City will open the defence of their title with a trip to Newcastle United after the English Premier League released the fixture list for the 2014-15 season on Wednesday.

Manuel Pellegrini’s side, who claimed a second title in three seasons, have been handed a tough start to their campaign, hosting Liverpool in the second week, followed a fortnight later by a trip to Arsenal and then a home fixture against Chelsea.

Chelsea travel to newly promoted Burnley on the first day of the season, August 16, followed by a home match to Championship winners Leicester City, who start life in the top-flight at home to Everton.

The other promoted side, Queens Park Rangers, host FA Cup runners-up Hull City in their first match. Tottenham Hotspur will seek revenge for three defeats to West Ham United last term when they travel to east London on opening day.

Last season’s runners-up Liverpool host Southampton in Ronald Koeman’s first match in charge, while fellow Dutchman Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United host Swansea City.

Manchester City host Southampton on May 24, the final day of the season, while Arsenal host West Bromwich Albion, Chelsea host Sunderland, Manchester United travel to Hull and Liverpool visit Stoke City.
