The first Manchester derby of the 2018-19 season will take place on November 10 at the Etihad Stadium, it has been confirmed.

Pep Guardiola's title winners will welcome Jose Mourinho's side on the 10th matchday of the new campaign, with the reverse fixture at Old Trafford currently set for March 19.

The Red Devils will begin their season at home to Leicester City, followed by a trip to Brighton & Hove Albion and a home tie with Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham Hotspur.

Boxing Day's fixture will be a home affair as they welcome Huddersfield Town, while a trip to Newcastle United awaits on New Year's Day.

Mourinho's men look to have a kind run-in on paper, facing just one of last season's top seven in their final seven fixtures - Chelsea at home on April 27 - with their final game of the season seeing them welcome promoted Cardiff City to Old Trafford.
