Toffees visit in hard start for Foxes

Last Updated: Wed, 18 Jun 2014 10:16

Leicester will host Everton on the opening weekend of the new Premier League season before facing Chelsea and Arsenal in August.

Nigel Pearson's Foxes secured their place back in the top-flight after a 10-year absence courtesy of their Championship title success last term.

And Roberto Martinez's Toffees, who impressed last season on their way to a fifth-placed finish, will arrive at the King Power Stadium on the weekend of Saturday August 16.

Things do not get much easier as City travel to Chelsea the following weekend, before a home clash against Arsenal on August 30.

Manchester United visit on September 20, with champions City then coming on December 13.

Tottenham are the visitors on Boxing Day, while the Foxes will see in 2015 with a trip to Liverpool on New Year's Day.

If the Foxes are in a relegation battle, they could have a favourable run-in with three of their final four games at home against Newcastle, Southampton and QPR with a trip to Sunderland wedged in between.
