The Premier League have released their fixture list for the upcoming 2022/23 campaign, and there are just over seven weeks until the new season kicks off with Arsenal travelling to Crystal Palace for the curtain-raiser on Friday, the 5th of August.

The opening weekend of the season sees Frank Lampard’s Everton host Chelsea, defending champions Manchester City travel to West Ham, while Liverpool begin their campaign at home to Fulham. The Erik ten Hag era at Manchester United will start with a home tie against Brighton, while Antonio Conte Spurs’ welcome Southampton at home.

Which teams have the easiest start?

Defending champions Manchester City have the opportunity to lay down an early marker in the season, with Pep Guardiola’s side facing no ‘Big 6’ sides in their opening six games. City take on West Ham, Bournemouth, Newcastle, Crystal Palace, Nottingham Forest and Aston Villa in their first six fixtures of the 2022/23 campaign.

Arsenal have a similar opportunity to get ahead of their rivals and pick up early momentum, with the Gunners taking on Crystal Palace, Leicester, Aston Villa and newly-promoted sides Bournemouth and Fulham to start the season.

Liverpool, Tottenham, and Chelsea play just one game each against big-six opposition in their first six fixture, while Manchester United have the toughest start amongst the top teams, with the Red Devils taking on Liverpool, Arsenal and Leicester City in their first six games.

2022 FIFA World Cup

Due to the 2022 FIFA World Cup being held in the winter in Qatar, the new Premier League season will also start earlier than usual on August 5, making it the earliest start in English top-flight history since the 1999-2000 season. There will be a mid-season break for the Premier League between November 14 and December 26 for the prestigious tournament in Qatar, while extra games have been crammed into October (six) and April (six) to make up for the time lost.

Final Day Drama

The final weekend of the season has brought plenty of drama over the last couple of years, and in the 2022/23 campaign, Manchester City travel to Brentford on matchday 38 while Liverpool visit Southampton. Arsenal and Chelsea host Wolves and Newcastle on the final day, while Tottenham face a tough away trip to Leeds United at Elland Road.
