Arsenal have the chance to get their first Premier League title challenge off to a flying start on August 8 when they welcome West Ham United to the Emirates.

The Gunners are expected to challenge Chelsea and Manchester City in the race to finish top and will be favourites to be sitting top of the table by the end of August.

Following the visit of West Ham, Arsenal will travel to south London to take on Crystal Palace before playing Liverpool at home and then Newcastle United away.

Compare that to Chelsea, who face Manchester City away in just their second game of the season. Their opening fixture will be against Swansea City at home.

Arsene Wenger will certainly be smiling this morning as he analyses the fixture list as it is probably the friendliest draw for the Gunners in some time.

Arsenal face just one of last season's the top six sides, Manchester City at home, during a crucial December month.

They will also enjoy home games against Liverpool (August 22), Manchester United (October 3), Tottenham (November 7) and City (December 19) before the turn of the year, giving them an excellent chance to build an unassailable lead at the top. They do, however, travel to Chelsea on September 19th.

The good and the bad

What is most pleasing about the fixture list from an Arsenal perspective is that they face no back-to-back games against any of the other top six sides.

The toughest run for Arsenal appears to come in January when they face Liverpool away, Stoke away and Chelsea at home in the space of 11 days.
