Excited Arsenal fans were brought back down to earth with a bump after seeing the 2018-19 Premier League fixtures on Thursday morning.

Full of hope before the 9am announcement, many were left in a grump after discovering that the Gunners must face defending champions Manchester City and 2017 winners Chelsea in their first two games.

One supporter lashed out on Twitter, writing: ‘Oh ffs, Man City then Chelsea. PL really do hate Arsenal.’

It never rains but it pours for Arsenal, who have been dealt a tough start in the 2018-19 season

Another fan used a crying emoji to express her feelings at Arsenal’s nightmare start.

Meanwhile, some Spurs supporters were frustrated after discovering that their first home game at their new stadium will not take place until the middle of September.

Tottenham will play their first designated home game at Wembley in matchweek two when Fulham are the visitors.

Their second home game — not until the weekend of September 15 — sees Liverpool visit the as yet unnamed 62,000 arena on the site of the old White Hart Lane.

Spurs fan Andy Morris wrote: ‘A long, sad season at Wembley and just when you think the wait to go home is over…’

He added: ‘Just 93 more days, lads,’ followed by a rolling eyes emoji.
