Liverpool will be the first visitors to the yet-to-be-named stadium on the weekend of September 15-16, the club confirmed. Liverpool will be at home to Everton in the first fixture of the two.

In a flurry of fanfare that will thankfully be beaten by the 70th ranked national side playing the 67th ranked nation later this afternoon, the Premier League fixtures were release today.

"It will be great for the fans of both clubs as with the game being played so close to the start of the new season, I think we can expect that both managers will bring as strong a squad as possible to Dublin for this game". "I have stood inside the bowl and I know the atmosphere will be unbelievable - it will be well worth the wait".

Tottenham have confirmed that they will play their first home Premier League game of the season against Fulham at Wembley.

Over 3,000 construction staff are working on the site of Tottenham's old White Hart Lane ground in order to get the stadium finished.

United's first big test will be the visit of Spurs to Old Trafford on August 25, while Jurgen Klopp's side are away to the Londoners on September 15.

Liverpool, the losing Champions League finalists, appear to have the toughest start of any of the likely title-contenders. The coaching staff were keen to place a home game within the early fixtures so we shall have one home game at Wembley.
