The stand out fixture in the opening round of the Premier League see’s champions Manchester City travel to Arsenal.
Unai Emery will take charge of his first official game as Arsenal manager, after he replaced Arsene Wenger in the summer.
The Gunners have added the likes of Lucas Torreira and Stephan Lichtsteiner in a bid to return to the top four.
Manchester City’s only major summer addition thus far has been Riyad Mahrez.
They kick started their season with a Community Shield victory last week, beating Chelsea 2-0, with Sergio Aguero scoring both.
Manchester City won both meetings last season on route to an easy title victory.
They eased to a 3-0 win at the Emirates, just a few days after they beat the same opponents in the Capital One Cup final.
Last five Premier League meetings

Arsenal 2 Manchester City 2 – 02/04/17
Manchester City 2 Arsenal 1 – 18/12/16
Manchester City 2 Arsenal 2 – 05/05/16
Hector Bellerin is set to start ahead of Lichtsteiner in the season opener, with Ashley Maitland-Niles likely to feature on the opposite side due to injury.
Both Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette are set to start here.
David Silva is a doubt here and is unlikely to start in Manchester City’s opening fixture.
Kevin de Bruyne and Kyle Walker should come into the team having missed the Community Shield.

Arsenal (4-2-3-1): Leno; Bellerin, Mustafi, Sokratis, Maitland-Niles; Xhaka, Torreira; Mkhitaryan, Ozil, Aubameyang; Lacazette
