Liverpool will head to Fulham on the opening weekend of the 2022-23 Premier League season as they look to take the title back from Manchester City, who will travel to West Ham in their season opener.

Last season’s title rivals will both head to London, with Jurgen Klopp’s men taking on the Cottagers on Saturday August 6 and Pep Guardiola’s reigning champions facing the Hammers a day later.

Erik ten Hag’s first Premier League game in charge of Manchester United will be a home clash with Brighton.

The first Manchester derby is on October 1 at the Etihad Stadium. The return is on January 14 at Old Trafford.

Two weeks after that first clash with United, City head to Anfield on October 15. And, in what could be a key clash in the title race, face the Reds again on April 1.

Nottingham Forest will head to Newcastle on their return to the top flight, while Crystal Palace will host Arsenal in the opening fixture of the new season on Friday August 5.

Tottenham have a home game against Southampton, while Chelsea head to Everton. Leeds will take on Wolves at Elland Road, Leicester host Brentford and Aston Villa head to Bournemouth.

The final day of the season on May 28 sees Liverpool travel to Southampton, while City are away at Brentford.

The so-called ‘big six’ have also been kept apart immediately before the World Cup, which starts on November 21, as requested by England manager Gareth Southgate.

Boxing Day throws up some Christmas crackers

Notable Boxing Day fixtures see Arsenal host West Ham, Liverpool travel to Aston Villa, Leeds welcoming Man City to Elland Road while Nottingham Forest travel to Man Utd.

There are also no midweek games between the Boxing Day and New Year’s Day programmes. This is normal when Boxing Day is on a Monday, with the additional fixture being played in the first midweek of 2023.

In terms of how the Premier League will impact on Europe, City have four home games immediately before Champions League fixtures, while Liverpool and Chelsea have three and Tottenham two.
