Liverpool face a tougher start with Arsenal and City in their opening four fixtures. Before that, Jose Mourinho's side play West Ham, Swansea, Leicester, Stoke, Everton, Southampton and Crystal Palace, with Manchester derbies on and December 9 and April 7.
Spurs fans will have hoped for an appealing start to life at Wembley - the venue for their home matches next season as their new stadium is being built - and Chelsea should fit the bill. The two title contenders will face in the Manchester derbies on December 9th and April 7th.
The third opponent that we fare well against at home is Stoke City, in 6 home games, we've won 4, losing 1. But to suggest it's as simple as that would be wrong, especially when you look back at how last season panned out - and so many seasons before that.
Tottenham have five of six home games after playing in the Champions League, while Chelsea and United have four each.
"But this is the Premier League - every game you play in the Premier League is going to be a challenge, particularly when you haven't been there before".
They face Manchester City, Tottenham and United around that period, as well as potential stumbling blocks in Burnley, Swansea, Southampton and West Ham.
The Premier League fixtures for 2017/18 have been announced.
