Quiz: How much do you remember about past Premier League opening days?

Tottenham Hotspur will start their 2017/18 Premier League campaign away to newly promoted Newcastle United on the weekend of August 12.

The season opener for City will be on the road to newly promoted Brighton & Hove Albion, who will certainly make the Amex Stadium a insane atmosphere for the team's first ever Premier League match.

The other Premier League newcomers Huddersfield Town will play their first top-flight game in 45 years at Crystal Palace as Arsenal open at home to Leicester City.

The Eagles, still manager-less, will then go into games against Liverpool and Swansea City, while they play rivals Brighton and Hove Albion on 28 November and 14 April.

Leicester, Arsenal, Chelsea, Stoke, Everton and Burnley all have hard early season fixtures, but which Premier League teams has the toughest start?

Both the Manchester and Merseyside derbies will take place on the same two weekends this season and the second round of those fixtures could be particularly decisive as the season enters its business end.

"It's changed so much now because you've got so many good sides in the Premier League and you've got to fight, you've got to scrap, you've got to chase, you've got to win as many games as you possibly can at the start of the season".

The game may well be switched to St Marys, but that has to be agreed by the two clubs. 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. They were beaten heavily at Chelsea, lost to Tottenham and Arsenal and drew with Liverpool and Manchester City. It is always nice for fans to enjoy games against top teams over the Christmas period. United's season ends with a home game against Watford on May 13.

Who do you want to see us play in the opening round of fixtures?

Chelsea travel to Newcastle on the final day of the season, and the Magpies have form in making things hard for the Blues.

Antonio Conte's team are striving to become the first club to retain the Premier League title since Manchester United in 2008/09 and will aim for a repeat of their convincing 3-1 victory at Turf Moor on Matchweek 1 of their victorious 2014/15 campaign.

There have been 25 seasons since the Premier League was formed in 1992/93 - but what was the best match for YOUR club in that time?
