A home game against Everton will kick off Leicester City's first Barclays Premier league campaign in 10 years, following the release of the 2014/15 fixtures on Wednesday.

The visit of the Toffees to King Power Stadium on Saturday 16 August is the first in a challenging sequence of early fixtures for Nigel Pearson's men, who will also face a trip to Chelsea and home games against Arsenal and Manchester United in their first five games.

Champions Manchester City will visit King Power Stadium on 13 December - part of a festive schedule which also includes a home game against Tottenham Hotspur on Boxing Day and a trip to Anfield to face Liverpool on New Year's Day.

The end-of-season run-in has handed City the potential advantage of playing four of their final six games on home soil. The campaign closes on 24 May with a home game against fellow Premier League new boys Queens Park Rangers.

City will have an opportunity to assess their opening day opponents on Sunday 27 July when they take on Everton in a pre-season friendly at the Supachalasai Stadium in Bangkok – a game that will mark the 25th anniversary of City’s parent company, King Power International.
