Sam Allardyce's men will be waiting for us on Saturday August 19.
Our first home game is scheduled against newley-promoted Sheffield United on Tuesday August 22 with Everton following at the Lane on Saturday August 26. We then travel to Manchester United on Saturday September 9.
Other key dates include the derbies against Arsenal and our first visit to the Emirates Stadium on Saturday December 2 with the return at the Lane on Saturday April 21.
Meanwhile, we face champions Chelsea at home on Saturday November 4 and travel to Stamford Bridge on Saturday April 7.
THIS IS VERY MUCH A PROVISIONAL FIXTURE LIST AND ALL FIXTURES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
Sky TV will make their early selections later in the week and our UEFA Cup involvement (as these are mainly Thursday night games) will see league games being moved from Saturday to Sunday as we progress.
Our UEFA Cup involvement means we are also exempt from the second round of the Carling Cup and enter that competition in the third round.
We will travel to Bolton on the opening day of next season following the unveiling of the Premiership's provisional fixture list this morning.
