It was a joke doing the rounds on social media over the last 24 hours that West Ham would play Manchester City on the opening weekend of the Premier League but it's no joke...it's true.

The first London derby arrives on October 5 when Crystal Palace are the visitors to east London.

West Ham face London rivals Spurs (November 23, H) and Chelsea (November 30, A) on consecutive weekends in November.



Pep Guardiola's side will kick off the season in east London as Manuel Pellegrini's team Hammers are handed yet another brutal start to the league campaign, continuing a trend that has occurred since the 2014/15 season.

At least this one is at home, that hasn't happened since the Spurs game at the start of the 2014/15 season.

The Hammers face two promoted sides early in the campaign as they host Norwich on August 31 and travel to Aston Villa on September 14.

West Ham faced Liverpool for the first game last season, before that it was Manchester United, Chelsea, Arsenal and Spurs, now it's City to complete the big six.
