Huddersfield Town play Chelsea on the opening day of the 2018/19 Premier League season.

The top flight released all of the fixtures at 9am, with the Terriers discovering they will also face Manchester United on Boxing Day and Burnley on New Year's Day.

Town will also take on Southampton at St Mary's on the final day of the season.

Last year David Wagner's men kicked off at Selhurst Park against Crystal Palace and claimed an impressive 3-0 win over the Eagles.

That victory took Town top of the table and the West Yorkshire side continued their 100 per cent record in their first home match, beating Championship victors Newcastle United 1-0 at the John Smith's Stadium.

Stick with us here as we bring you all the reaction from the announcement.

Warnock on Cardiff fixtures

The former Town boss isn’t sure he’ll last till Christmas after the Bluebirds’ fixtures were released this morning!

He told talkSport:

We’ve got Arsenal at home, Chelsea away and then Man City at home in September – it’s a great league isn’t it?

Then in October we’ve got Tottenham away, Fulham at home and Liverpool away – it’ll be about, ‘can I last ‘till Christmas?’

I’ve just been over to Malaysia, I went to see my owner to talk about next season and what we’re looking it.

When I left I said to the staff there, ‘I hope I see you next year, but you know what’s like this managerial job!’

Best opening days

That’s the first away day for Town this coming season.

Last year the Terriers visited City on the third-to-last day of the campaign and became the first team to stop Pep Guardiola’s side scoring in a home league match.

Can they do it again this year?

Here’s our away day guide for the Terriers’ first away match.

What a day it was last year.

Town had come up via the play-offs for their maiden Premier League season, being paired with Crystal Palace on the opening weekend.

A Joel Ward own goal gave Town the lead at Selhurst Park before a Steve Mounie brace confirmed Town’s first win in the top flight since November 27, 1971.

Here’s the match report from that 3-0 victory.
