Confirmed: Full Newcastle 2015/2016 Premier League fixture list

Newcastle's complete Premier League fixture list for 2015/2016.

Newly-appointed Newcastle boss Steve McClaren will be hoping that the Magpies can avoid another relegation battle next season.

After only narrowly staying in the Premier League with a 2-0 win over West Ham on the final day of the season, Newcastle will now be praying for better fortunes under new manager McClaren.

The former England boss will be pleased to start the new campaign at home, as Southampton are the first visitors to St. James' Park, where McClaren should receive a huge reception.

Following that game, Newcastle face a gruelling end to August as they first travel to Manchester United before hosting Arsenal, whilst McClaren will pit his side against Chelsea at home and Manchester City away within seven days of each other in September and October.

The first Tyne and Wear derby arrives in October as Newcastle make the short trip to face Sunderland at the Stadium of Light, with the corresponding fixture taking place in March at St. James' Park.

Over the busy Christmas period, Newcastle face Everton at home, Arsenal away and West Bromwich Albion away in a tricky run of fixtures, whilst they end the campaign at home to Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham.
