Premier League 2016-17: Arsenal to host Liverpool on opening day

Arsenal to face Liverpool and Leicester city in their first two premier league fixtures next season

Arsenal Players

It seems like it was only yesterday that the Gunners lost their opening game to West Ham United at home, and then finishing off the 2015-16 as runners up, their highest position in the league table for quite some time.

Come August this year and the 2016-17 season would have kicked off as well. The fixtures for the opening day have now been published all over the internet.

Next season’s campaign that begins on the 13th of August will see Arsene Wenger’s side go head to head with Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool as reported by The Guardian.

Newly appointed Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho will re-start his premier league career with a away fixture at AFC Bournemouth.

Italy’s current boss and Chelsea’s incoming manager Antonio Conte will begin his premier League campaign with a home game against London rivals West Ham, who are to move to the Olympic Stadium, their new home ground.

Current champions Leicester City will face incoming side Hull, who come back to the top tier of English football after a one year gap.

Pep Gurdiola, on the other hand will begin his journey in the premier league with Manchester City against Sunderland, who held on tight to the premier league and beat their Northeast rivals Newcastle United in one of the fiercest relegation battles we have seen in recent times.

All of Arsenal’s fixtures for the 2016-17 season have now been made public and courtesy The Telegraph, one can see them already to decide how and when one wishes to watch these games.

Arsenal undoubtedly have a tough start to the upcoming season, with their opening game against Liverpool followed by a visit to the King Power stadium against defending champions Leicester.

Our first away game is against Champions Leicester city. Although we won both our fixtures last year against them but they still became Premier league Champions and we’d be hoping to take 3 points again when time comes.

The Gunners will end next year’s season with a game at the Britannia Stadium against Stoke City, a difficult place to pick up a result for the strongest of teams in the premier league.

Arsenal’s goalless draw and Petr Cech’s quality in saving several efforts put in by the potters in that draw are testimony to this fact.

The Gunners last home game will be against Everton, who have recently appointed Ronald Koeman as their new boss.

Arsenal fans around the world will, of course, be hopeful that the Gunners are able to bring in a few big names before that game against Liverpool on the opening day next season!
