SAINTS will play Burnley at St Mary's on the opening day of the 2018/19 Premier League season.

The Clarets finished 7th last term and, on the way to that lofty finish, won on the South Coast 1-0 in November, thanks to a goal from Southampton-born striker Sam Vokes. 

The opening game could be moved to Sunday, 12 August, depending on Burnley's progress in Europa League. If they make it throught he second qualifying round, then this game will be shifted.

Mark Hughes' side will finish the top-flight campaign against Huddersfield Town at home.

The festive period looks like Saints' toughest run of the new campaign. They face Manchester United, Tottenham, Arsenal, champions Manchester City in December and Chelsea on New Year's Day.

In that run, they face Tottenham away in a tricky midweek evening fixture. 

Saints welcome West Ham to St Mary's on Boxing Day, meaning they start, finish and have the main festive fixure all at St Mary's. 

Of course, all fixtures are subject to change.
