So here's five Premier League fixtures at The Hawthorns you will not want to miss:

EVERTON - Saturday, August 20:

First up and always an entertaining game, Everton will be under the new management of Ronald Koeman following the Roberto Martinez era. Whether or not favoured old boy Romelu Lukaku is in their ranks, it's a curtain-raiser which promises to produce goals.

MANCHESTER CITY - Saturday, October 29:

City are the one member of the Premier League elite corps who we have not beaten since our promotion. Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea have all tasted defeat against the Baggies...will this be the day we finally add City to the list?

MANCHESTER UNITED - Saturday, December 17:

Traditionally, the last Saturday before Christmas is a tough day for Clubs to pack their stadium but the Albion v United is one of the blue riband fixtures of English football. And last season, the Baggies were superb in a 1-0 victory.

ARSENAL - Saturday, March 18:

This game was memorable last season for a 2-1 Albion victory and a terrific team performance after falling behind to a first half Olivier Giroud.Twelve minutes later Albion were winning and a fantastic battle ensued. 

LEICESTER CITY - Saturday, April 29:

Last season's fixtures produced nine goals, an absorbing clash at the King Power stadium but only one point for Albion. The scalp of the champions is one the Baggies will feel is overdue.
