Arsenal to play Chelsea in International Champions Cup

The Premier League fixtures for the 2018/19 season have now been revealed, with Arsenal dealt a tricky opening run of matches.

It is a similar story for neighbours United, who begin at home to Leicester.

The pair are among six Premier League clubs in the competition, with Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham and Liverpool also competing.

"It will be great for the fans of both clubs as with the game being played so close to the start of the new season, I think we can expect that both managers will bring as strong a squad as possible to Dublin for this game".

Arsenal will take on Chelsea at the Aviva Stadium on Wednesday, August 1 as part of the International Champions Cup.

It is now all about which of them can navigate their programme best - but none of them will want to be in Arsenal's shoes at the beginning of August.
