The 2018-19 Premier League fixtures were announced on Thursday, with the visit of champions Manchester City to Arsenal the headline act of the opening weekend.
Arsenal's north London rivals Tottenham travel to Newcastle United, Liverpool host Manuel Pellegrini's West Ham, last season's runners-up Manchester United face Leicester at home and Chelsea travel to Huddersfield Town.
Championship winners Wolves will face Everton at home, Cardiff City will travel to Bournemouth and Fulham will welcome Crystal Palace to Craven Cottage.
Here, with the help of Opta, we look at two facts for each of the opening-day fixtures.
