The Pep Guardiola era at Manchester City begins with a home match against Sunderland. That is the first game in a relatively kind looking start for the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager with Stoke, West Ham, Bournemouth and Swansea among the opening six fixtures.

However the other team among those opening games is against Manchester United and a reunion with rival Jose Mourinho on 10 September at Old Trafford.

Improvement is expected on last season's fourth place finish under Manuel Pellegrini - in fact such is the expectation around their incoming manager that anything less than winning the title may be considered a failure. If Guardiola does manage to guide Manchester City to the title, they could potentially lift the trophy following a game against defending champions Leicester City, who they face in their final home game of the season.

Here are some of the highlights from Manchester City’s fixture list to look out for:

First game

Manchester City will face Sunderland at the Etihad on the 13 August.

Last game

Manchester City will play against Watford at Vicarage Road on 21 May 2017.

Games against biggest rivals

Manchester United: 10 September (A), 25 February (H)

Over the festive period

Manchester City will play over the festive period Hull City on St Stephen's Day, Liverpool on the 31 December and Burnley in the first fixture of the New Year on 2 January.
