Opening Day Fixtures Arsenal 14 Spurs 6

First game of the season stats suggest we have been a little hard done by over the years, is that because Arsenal get preferential treatment from the Premier League with 14 home games in 21 seasons?

Since the Premier League started in 1992-93 we have only been given 6 opening game home fixtures
W2 D2 L1 F6 A5

We have only had 2 home fixtures in the last 9 years and only 3 in the last 12 years.

Our overall record in the Premier League era in the first game of the season is: W6 D6 L9 F21 A26

The teams we have beaten are: 
Newcastle United
Sheffield Wednesday
Blackburn Rovers
Ipswich Town
Portsmouth
Liverpool

We have drawn against: 
Southampton
Manchester City (twice)
Aston Villa
Everton
Liverpool

We have lost against: 
Manchester United (twice)
Wimbledon
West Ham United
Birmingham City
Bolton Wanderers
Sunderland
Middlesbrough
Newcastle United

Perhaps to balance it out we might actually be awarded a penalty this year!
