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

Posted June 15, 2018

Unai Emery will have one hell of a tough start as Arsenal manager.

Cardiff start at Bournemouth while Fulham, who secured their place in the top flight via a Wembley play-off final win over Aston Villa start the league season at home to Crystal Palace.

Arsenal will begin proceedings by hosting the reigning champions at the Emirates before travelling to Stamford Bridge the following weekend. Oof.

Tottenham has three away games in its first four fixtures.

Emery has a comfortable-looking run in, with May's fixtures seeing them face Brighton at home (May 4) before rounding off the campaign at Burnley away (May 12). Arsene Wenger used to give the players four weeks off at least, but it is a new era for Arsenal with a new coach coming into the club.

Everton will - wait for it - play every other Premier League side.

All the eyes are on the young pair of Bollywood, or we can say in Arjun Kapoor's words, "the modern Romeo and Juliet". Soorma , on the other hand, is directed by Shaad Ali and is produced by Sony Pictures Networks India and The CS Films.

After the opening-weekend game at Etihad Stadium, the Gunners travel to fellow top-six contenders Chelsea.

The Champions League group stage will commence on 18-19 September, and last season's beaten finalists Liverpool face an away Premier League fixture before all of their six group games.

Away fixtures at Watford, which has been reversed, and Manchester United and an global break buy them some time to complete work on the stadium before Jurgen Klopp's men visit for the first game in the middle of September.

The International Champions Cup returns to the Aviva Stadium this summer, with Arsenal and Chelsea set to meet in Dublin on August 1st. Our fans have been hugely supportive and this has been much appreciated during a challenging but momentous time.

Wolves, who won the Championship by nine points, follow the visit of Everton with a trip to 2016-17 champions Leicester, and visit Liverpool on the final day of the campaign.
