Manuel Pellegrini will take on Jurgen Klopp in his first match in charge of West Ham, after the Hammers were handed a trip to Liverpool on the opening day of the Premier League season.

The Hammers, who finished in 13th place in the league last season, will be hoping for better fortunes this time around at Anfield after they were thumped 4-1 by the Reds in February thanks to goals from Emre Can, Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane.

Klopp’s Liverpool reached the Champions League final last season and the German has wasted no time in strengthening his squad this summer, with Fabinho arriving from Monaco and Naby Keita set to join from RB Leipzig.

After facing Liverpool, West Ham will then face AFC Bournemouth in their first home game of the season on Saturday, August 18, before rounding off the opening month of the campaign with a trip to Unai Emery’s Arsenal.

Championship winners Wolves will travel to the London Stadium in the first home game of September and Chelsea will also visit the Hammers’ ground later that month on Saturday, September 22, marking West Ham’s first London derby of the season.

October will see a home match against Tottenham Hotspur sandwiched in between trips to Brighton and Hove Albion and Leicester City.

Manchester City will most notably visit the London Stadium in mid-week in November before December kicks off will a home game against Newcastle United.

The Hammers will be on the road over the festive period with trips to Southampton on Boxing Day and Burnley three days later, before Manuel Pellegrini’s men return to action at the London Stadium on New Year’s Day when they take on Brighton.

Arsenal will then travel to the London Stadium in January, before the Hammers round out the opening month of 2019 with visits to Bournemouth and Wolves.

February starts with home games against Liverpool and Crystal Palace before West Ham head to Manchester City at the end of the month.

Manuel Pellegrini’s men will only play two of their last six games at home, with the Hammers set to travel to Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham in a testing April.

West Ham’s last home game will take place on Saturday, May 4 when Southampton visit the London Stadium, before the Hammers round off the top flight season with a trip to Javi Gracia’s Watford on the final day of the campaign.
