Arsenal to face Manchester City and Chelsea in opening Premier League fixtures, fans react

Unai Emery would have known that his Arsenal career would not be easy, but he would have hoped to have an easier start to the season.

The Spaniard will kick off the 2018-19 Premier League campaign with arguably the toughest match-up of the opening weekend.

Emery will host his first top-flight game at the Emirates against the reigning champions Manchester City on August 11.

It will not get any easier after that as they travel to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea, so theoretically, Arsenal could be six points behind their rivals after the opening two weeks.

Of course, there is no reason why they will not earn maximum points, but it is not the ideal way for Emery to ease into English football.

Pressure will be heavy on the manager’s shoulders as he tries to eradicate two previous disappointing campaigns that ended in failure to qualify for the Champions League.

Once the fixtures were announced, the fans were automatically drawn to the opening two games.
