Fabian Huerzeler knows which matches Tony Bloom really wants to win.

But he is looking forward to all fixtures in the Premier League next season.

The new boss will kick off life in charge at one of the most traditional footballing homes in the Prem as Albion go to Everton.

Their first home game is against Manchester United and then comes a trip to Arsenal.

Huerzeler said: "In the Premier League, there won't be any easy games. In Everton, not easy.

“I know how they play. I watched them last season. All the big teams had trouble there.

“Manchester United, big tradition, big team. Arsenal were so close to winning the championship. It's a good start."

Albion’s more traditional rivals are Crystal Palace, who finished last season strongly under their own new head coach.

Something of a rivalry with Chelsea developed after Graham Potter’s departure although that may have faded by now.

The matches against Brentford are also of significance to Bloom.

Huerzeler said: "I am looking forward to every game. With (Manchester) City and Pep Guardiola, it will be a big challenge and I'm really looking forward to playing against him.

“There are great coaches in every club now.”

He added with a laugh: “I know which games are very important for Tony.

“I won't say the names now but I will try to win these games for you, Tony!"
