Fulham were handed a relatively comfortable start to the season when the Barclays Premier League fixtures were announced earlier today.

Whilst there are no easy games in the English top flight, Aston Villa at home (August 13th) followed by Wolverhampton Wanderers away is not the worst two matches for Martin Jol to bed in at Craven Cottage.

A trip to Newcastle for the third game of the season has a difficult look to it, whilst Blackburn Rovers visit west London for the club's fourth match of the season on the 10th September.

Manchester City's trip to the Cottage is Fulham's only match against a 'big five' team in the opening three months of the season, whilst a date for Jol's diary will be November 5th, when old club Tottenham Hotspur travel to the club.

Back-to-back fixtures against Arsenal away and Liverpool at home have a difficult look about them (26th November and 3rd December), whilst a boxing day derby at Stamford Bridge could provide a post-christmas treat just five days after Manchester United visit Craven Cottage.

The FA Cup third round is scheduled for January 7th, with the reverse fixture against Chelsea penciled in on Monday, 9th April. A trip to Anfield follows five days later, while Jol returns to White Hart Lane on the final day with Fulham on the 13th May.
