A tricky start then sees Paul Lambert's men entertain Liverpool on August 24 and a trip to Chelsea follows a week later.

The first derby of the season against West Brom is pencilled in for November 23, while Crystal Palace visit Villa Park on Boxing Day and Sunderland provide the opposition on New Year's Day.

The return clash with the Baggies is on January 28 and the campaign comes to a close with games against Hull (H) on May 3 and Tottenham (A) on May 11.
