Arsenal's first game of the 2011/12 Barclays Premier League season is away at Newcastle United on August 13.

Arsène Wenger's side will then host Liverpool on August 20 in their first match of the season at Emirates Stadium.

A difficult start continues with a trip to Manchester United on August 27 straight after the second leg of Arsenal's Champions League play-off. The Gunners must also visit Tottenham and Chelsea before the end of October.

The second North London derby of the season takes place at the Emirates on February 25, five weeks after Man United visit north London.

Arsenal host Chelsea on April 21 before finishing the campaign against Stoke City, Norwich City and West Bromwich Albion.
