Five Key Matches
v Manchester United (A) on September 10
It will take just four weeks for Red Devils fans to get their hands on some derby action. City v United, Pep v Jose will be huge.
v Tottenham Hotspur (A) on October 2
An early season litmus test for the Citizens as they travel to White Hart Lane for a late afternoon kick-off.
v Chelsea (H) on December 4
The start of a six-game stretch that includes trips to Liverpool and Leicester, whilst Arsenal will come to town too. Vital for their title aspirations.
v Hull City (A) on December 27
Time to shake off the festive fun and get back down to business on the road to the KC Stadium to face the newly returned Hull City.
v Leicester City (H) on May 14
The penultimate game of the season, and a potential banana skin on any title run-in. If they can repeat last season’s form, the Champions will be a tough late test.
