The first Premier League match of the 2019/20 season sees Liverpool hosting newly-promoted Norwich on Friday evening as Jurgen Klopp's men look to go one better than last season's second-placed finish.
When will City and Liverpool meet?
Here is how Twitter reacted to the release of the Premier League fixtures for 2019-20. The Belgian worldwide won two Premier League titles, an FA Cup, a League Cup, and two Europa League crowns.
The first Liverpool vs. Manchester City match will be at Anfield on the weekend of November 9.
Villa Park is expected to be sold out for the club's first home game back in the top flight, although some fans may have preferred more illustrious opponents to mark the occasion.
In spite of this tone, we are looking forward to the new season, so much so that the fixture list has got us reminiscing about previous seasons, and - in particular - previous opening days.
City's opening six games include a repeat of the FA Cup final against Watford, who they thrashed 6-0 at Wembley, as well as games against Bournemouth and Brighton and Hove Albion.
The first Merseyside derby of the season will come in December, with Everton travelling to Anfield provisionally on the 4th December.
It's a tricky run-in for Klopp's men - who collected nine wins from their final nine games last season.
City versus Arsenal is another contest scheduled for the leap year date of February 29.
The Reds go to Leicester City on Boxing Day before a home double-header against Wolves and Sheffield United ahead of the FA Cup third round in early January.
