    EPL kickoff: Man United Faces Leicester in August 10

    The clash between Manchester United and Leicester City will now be the opening match of the 2018/19 Premier League season as television demands forced the organisers to hold the encounter on August 10, AFP reports.

    United’s neighbours and reigning champions Manchester City will have to wait until Sunday for their first outing when they travel to Arsenal, who start a new chapter with Spanish manager Unai Emery after two decades under Arsene Wenger.

    Also on the Sunday, Liverpool will host West Ham, where all eyes will be on the Reds’ goalkeeper Loris Karius after his errors in the Champions League final. The clash will also be former Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini’s first game in charge of the Hammers.
    Emery must have wondered whether a black cat had crossed his path before the fixtures were announced, as his United side faces 2017 champions Chelsea the following Sunday, with the game switched from the Saturday so it can be shown live.

    Televised football viewers will also get an early sighting of two of the three newly promoted clubs.
    Wolverhampton Wanderers, who finished top of the second tier Championship, play Everton, another club under new management in the shape of Marco Silva, in the early evening kick-off on the Saturday.
