Chelsea have announced three pre-season fixtures, one of which will take place at Stamford Bridge.

Emery also has a tough start to December, with a home north London derby against Tottenham on 1 December followed by a trip to Manchester United.

A similar result on the opening day would certainly issue a statement of City's intent.

The first Manchester derby, which will pit last season's top two against each other, is due to take place on November 10 when Jose Mourinho's United make the short jounrey across town.

Drake never responded to Pusha T , but he's clearly got a message for " Degrassi " fans: He hasn't forgotten us. The rapper was a cast member of the show for 145 episodes from 2001 to 2009, playing Jimmy Brooks .

I am hoping that Emery gets off to a great start, and this game will be important in deciding who starts his first Premier League game.

Last season's encounters ended in a victory apiece with both sides claiming victories in their neighbours' own back yard.

As is traditional, the month of December presents gifts of games galore.

The Gunners will take on the champions at the Emirates on the opening weekend of the season, which takes place on August 11, before then travelling to Stamford Bridge for a London derby in their second game.
