Swansea up first for new boss Moyes

PREMIER League champions Manchester United will start the 2013-14 season at League Cup winners Swansea.

New manager David Moyes takes his team to south Wales on August 17, before the returning Jose Mourinho's Chelsea visit Old Trafford the following weekend. A match at Liverpool follows for United on August 31.

Mourinho's men kick off the campaign with a match against newly-promoted Hull at Stamford Bridge, while there are also home games for fellow Champions League hopefuls Manchester City and Arsenal.

Manuel Pellegrini's reign as City boss starts with a home match against Newcastle, who confirmed Joe Kinnear as their director of football yesterday. Arsenal are at home to Aston Villa, while Liverpool start with a home game against Mark Hughes' Stoke.
