The DRAFT Barclays Premier League fixture list for the 2009/10 season has been announced.

Arsenal kick-off the campaign with a trip to Goodison Park on August 15 to take on Everton. However Champions League commitments mean the home game with Bolton, which is scheduled for August 18, will have to be re-arranged. Therefore the first Barclays Premier League match of the season at Emirates Stadium will be the visit of Portsmouth on August 22.

The month ends with a cracker – Manchester United at Old Trafford on August 29. The return game at Emirates is set for January 30.

The North London derbies will be at Emirates on October 31 and at White Hart Lane on April 10.

The games with Liverpool are on December 12 at Anfield and February 9 at Emirates Stadium. Chelsea come to North London on November 28 while Arsenal go to Stamford Bridge on February 6.

Arsène Wenger’s side conclude their Barclays Premier League campaign by entertaining Fulham on May 9.
