A selection of Twitter reaction to the fixture announcement, including posts from frustrated West Ham fans, can be seen below: Obviously a tough side in Man City first game, but with a big home turn out we may be able to catch them off guard.

An opening day win can be exactly the confidence boost needed to go on and perform across the wider campaign, while a loss can set the trend for a beginning filled with uncertainty- as West Ham discovered last season.

West Ham will likely be looking forward to getting the Man City game out of the way, as the club’s following fixtures come against Brighton & Hove Albion, Watford, Norwich City and Aston Villa- which will all be seen as winnable games.

The first fixture of a new season can be seen as a fresh start for any club, where they can set the tone for the season.

The Hammers are becoming accustomed to being presented with unfavourable opening day fixtures though, having faced Liverpool last season while coming up against Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur during the first day in the consecutive preceding seasons.

With this in mind, the Hammers weren’t exactly thrilled to see Manchester City as the first name on their fixture list: The only way this could have been a more challenging opening is if it was away, as the Hammers are coming up against the side who won every available trophy in England last season.
