Arsenal and Chelsea to head for Dublin for International Champions Cup fixture

As if that is not enough, the Gunners then travel to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea on match-week two.

This is first time a club has been allowed to play home games at two venues in the same season.

The league starts at the scandalously early date of Saturday, August 11 but the games will be spaced out so that there will only be four games played by the start of September [no midweek league fixtures].

United, who begin their season at home to Leicester City, were the only team to claim three points at the Etihad against Guardiola's champions last season, with Paul Pogba inspiring the visitors to a 3-2 victory in April having trailed 2-0 at half-time.

Among the final round of matches, scheduled for May 12, Manchester City are at Brighton - where they started last season - while Cardiff and Wolves are at Manchester United and Liverpool respectively.

Perhaps the most eagerly anticipated game next season will not be the Manchester derby, but the first clash between City and Liverpool at Anfield on October 6.

Arsenal will play Chelsea on 1 August in the International Champions Cup.

Absolutely, it is the game before the season starts.

The pair are among six Premier League clubs in the competition, with Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham and Liverpool also competing.

But when are the 10 biggest fixtures of the season taking place?
