Fans of the English Premier League can officially begin the countdown to the start of the season.

The league released their full-season fixture list on Wednesday, which includes a whole host of mouth-watering matchups in the first month of the season, beginning with a ten-game slate on Saturday, August 16. Defending EPL champions Manchester City face Liverpool at home and Arsenal away in the first four weeks, along with Tim Howard’s Everton hosting Arsenal and Jozy Altidore’s Sunderland hosting Manchester United.

Geoff Cameron and Stoke City will host Aston Villa to open the season but have a road date with Man City in just the third week of the season.

Louis Van Gaal’s first match as Man United manager will be at home against Swansea and he’ll have a relatively easy first four weeks of the season. In week five, Man United host Chelsea, in one of the early season’s must-see matches.

Other games of note during the season include Arsenal vs. Tottenham (9/27), Liverpool vs. Everton (9/27), Man City vs. Man United (11/1), and Chelsea vs. Liverpool (5/9).

After traversing through a difficult Boxing Day and New Years schedule, teams will wind down the season, with the final week extending all the way to May 24.
