Newcastle begin at Fulham


?Newcastle's push for promotion back to the Premier League will begin away to Fulham on Friday, August 5.

The Magpies were relegated to the Championship after a disappointing season but Rafael Benitez is targeting an immediate return to the top flight and will be looking to make a winning start to the campaign when they travel to west London in the curtain-raiser.

Their first home game is against Huddersfield Town on Saturday, August 13, while they face play-off runners-up Sheffield Wednesday on St Stephen's Day.

The new season begins in earnest on Saturday, August 6 when Norwich face Blackburn at Ewood Park, while Roberto Di Matteo's tenure at Aston Villa will begin with a trip to Sheffield Wednesday on Sunday, August 7.
