As was the case a year ago, once again Arsenal will be the curtain-raisers for the new Premier League season.

The 2022-23 fixtures were confirmed on Thursday and the Gunners will get their campaign underway against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park. It’s a fixture that carries similarities to Week 1 in 2021-22, when Arsenal also played on a Friday night against newly-promoted Brentford.

In that game, a 2-0 defeat paved the way for a challenging start to the season. Manager Mikel Arteta will want to see his team out of the blocks much quicker on this occasion, but there is a lot of work for him and the recruitment team to do before the big kick off.

‘Nightmare’ fixtures identified
Every team has those undesirable sequences of games throughout a Premier League season – Arsenal’s come in October and April.

While the Gunners look well placed to get off to a fast start – matches against Leicester, Bournemouth and Fulham follow their Week 1 trip to south London -, between October 1 and November 5 they play Tottenham, Liverpool, Leeds, Manchester City, Southampton, Forest and Chelsea.

Then in April, when the team will be hopeful of being in a top-four hunt, they will have matches to negotiate against Leeds, Liverpool, West Ham, Southampton, Man City and Chelsea.
