Newcastle have once again been handed a tricky start to their Premier League campaign, facing three of the top six in their opening five matches.
The Magpies were given a tough start to the previous season, where they faced four of the top flight’s elite – losing every clash.
And this year they welcome Arsenal to St James’ Park on the opening day, before travelling to Norwich on August 17.
They end the season at home to Liverpool.

Direction To St James’ Park
Newcastle has two major bus stations, Haymarket (for services from Northumberland and the North) and Eldon Square (services from County Durham and the south). These are located adjacent to each other on Percy Street, next to Haymarket Metro station. From both bus stations, cross over to the far side of the road, then walk up the passageway next to the Goose public house, and turn left.
The Stagecoach buses which operate within Newcastle and Gateshead city boundaries do not stop at either of the bus stations, but stop in the centre of town, from where the ground is signposted and easily walkable.
If you are travelling from the coast/Wallsend (on the yellow line), take the Metro to St. James’ Metro station, come out of the station, walk up the steps ahead and you will see the ground. If you are travelling from South Tyneside/Gosforth, get off at Haymarket and follow the directions listed above
Newcastle Central station is served by trains from across the North-East and beyond, with frequent services both before and after the game to get you here easily.
Newcastle Central station is located around 15 minute walk from St. James’ Park, and is well signposted. Cross the road from the station, and walk up Pink Lane, passing the Forth Hotel. Turn right onto Clayton Street, then left onto Westgate Street. Outside Tilleys Bar, bear right onto Bath Lane, passing Fujiyama Restaurant. After 200 metres, turn right and then left onto Gallowgate, and the ground will be obvious from here.
Alternatively, take the Metro from Central Station to Haymarket. Cross the road, and turn left. At Mordon Street (next to the Goose), turn right and then left, walking around the back of Eldon Gardens. The ground is at the end of this road (Strawberry Place), just beyond the Strawberry Pub
