Manchester City will begin their 2013/14 Premier League campaign against Newcastle at the Etihad Stadium.

After new manager Manuel Pellegrini's first game in charge against the Magpies, City take to the road for the first time in the new season to go up against newly-promoted Cardiff City on August 24.

The Chilean will hope to continue his new side's recent good form against Newcastle, who haven't taken maximum points against City in their last 13 games home and away.

The first Manchester derby comes in September as the Citizens play hosts to Manchester United, and their new manager Davids Moyes, on September 21. The second Manchester derby will be held at Old Trafford on March 1.

A tough run of fixtures follows after the derby game at the Etihad - which ended in a dramatic 3-2 win for the Red Devils last time around. City will go up against Everton (home), West Ham (away), and then Chelsea (away) in September.

September's fixture against Chelsea will be the first time Pellegrini and Jose Mourinho come face to face since their respective switches from La Liga. 

The Christmas period looks likely to be as crucial as ever in Manchester City's charge to regain the crown they won in 2012 under Roberto Mancini.

A Boxing Day trip to take on Liverpool at Anfield is followed by Swansea away on New Year's Day, with a home tie against Crystal Palace in between.

Key games in the new season include Arsenal at home on December 14, Tottenham away on January 29, and Chelsea at home on February 1.

FA Cup Final will return to its usual spot as the last day of the season on Saturday 17 May in 2013/14.
