Premier League Football Fixtures 2022 – 2023

Crystal Palace and Arsenal Set to Lift Curtain on 2022-23 Premier League Season

The fixtures for the 2022-23 Premier League season have been released. With Crystal Palace hosting Arsenal in the first game of the campaign on Friday 5 August. This will see Patrick Vieira go up against his former club. It was the Eagles who threw a big spanner in the works when beating the Gunners 3-0 last season to effectively deny them Champions League football.

Meanwhile, Frank Lampard has also been handed a reunion. After Everton were paired with Chelsea for the first Saturday teatime kick-off of the new season. The Toffees were able to boost their survival hopes last season by overcoming Thomas Tuchel’s side. Although this could be a far tougher assignment against a rejuvenated visiting team.

Premier League Initial Fixtures

Manchester City’s Premier League title defence starts with a trip to the London Stadium on Sunday 7 August. With West Ham likely to be difficult opponents for the champions. We are likely to see ErlingHaaland make his debut for the Cityzens. Against a team who raced into a 2-0 lead in last season’s fixture only for the game to finish in a 2-2 scoreline.

Liverpool have also been handed an away opener in the form of a Saturday lunchtime clash away to Fulham. The Cottagers won the Championship last season. And Marco Silva’s side will be looking to make a positive start now that they’re back in the Premier League. While we are likely to see Darwin Nunez make his Premier League debut in this encounter.

Manchester United begin a new chapter under Erik ten Hag. And the Dutchman will be relatively pleased to see that the fixture computer has handed his new team a Sunday afternoon clash against Brighton & Hove Albion. Ten Hag will have assembled a new-look squad by the time this fixture rolls around and United will be strong favourites for the win.

Meanwhile, Bournemouth are another club back in the big time. And the first assignment for Scott Parker’s side is a Saturday afternoon clash against Aston Villa. Steven Gerrard’s side will be wary of facing a promoted team in their first game of the season. As the Midlands side look to improve on last season’s mid-table finish. Be sure to read about the variety of football betting sites with the guide.

Wolves were also in mid-table come the final standings last term. And the Midlands side travel to Elland Road for their first clash of the 2022-23 campaign. They will go up against a Leeds United side who only retained their top-flight status on the final day of the season, with Jesse Marsch likely to bolster his squad over the summer and plot a course upwards in the division. Why not review the official Premier League fixtures on the official website.

Nottingham Forest are among the teams likely to be scrapping against the drop after getting promoted through the play-offs last season. With Steve Cooper’s side handed a relatively tricky encounter at St James’ Park. With Newcastle United having finished the season strongly and Eddie Howe will be looking to build on that initial success against the new boys.

Tottenham Hotspur will be strong favourites to make a winning start. When they entertain Southampton. With Antonio Conte having already snapped up Yves Bissouma from Brighton and there are likely to be more new faces on the way. Brentford were one of the surprise packages last season and Thomas Frank’s side are on the road for their first game. Where they will clash with Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.
