Manchester City begin their defence of the Premier League title away to last season's tenth placed team Newcastle United.
The title race went down to the wire last season as City just pipped Liverpool and Chelsea to top spot by two and four points respectively.
They have been handed arguably the most difficult start to the 2014/15 campaign though; in their first five games they face teams who all finished in the top ten last season, three of whom finished in the top four.
Last season's runners-up Liverpool make the short trip to the Etihad for their second game followed by a visit from Stoke City. An away journey to the Emirates Stadium to face Arsenal follows, and then Jose Mourinho's Chelsea are City's fifth opponent.
The New Year run-in appears very straight forward for the Blues with games against Leicester, Crystal Palace, West Brom and Burnley. The only game in December that could prove tricky will be a home game versus Everton on the 6th.
The first of two derbies against Manchester United is scheduled for November 1st at the Etihad Stadium.

The final 11 games of the season could be hugely important for City next season if they are going to reclaim their Premier League crown.
They have by far the easiest finish of all the title contenders; none of last season's top four sides feature in Man City's final 11 games.
However a local derby trip to Old Trafford, a visit to White Hart Lane and a home tie against Southampton could all be difficulties for Mauricio Pellegrini's men.
