Newcastle’s 2018-19 Premier League fixtures

Following a 10th-placed finish last season after having been promoted the previous campaign, Benitez will be eager to push towards a finish in the top six in the upcoming term.

The Magpies will have a tough test for their first game as they will host Tottenham at St James’ Park. Mauricio Pochettino’s side finished third last season and remain a threat both domestically and in Europe.

They will then travel to newly-promoted Cardiff before a string of challenging fixtures as they are set to face Benitez’s old club Chelsea, Manchester City and Arsenal three games in a row.

Benitez will return to his former home of Anfield on Boxing Day before hosting Manchester United on New Year’s Day, finishing the season with a visit to Craven Cottage in a clash against newly-promoted Fulham.
