The fixtures for the 2022/23 Premier League season have been released with Crystal Palace hosting Arsenal in the campaign’s first fixture on August 5.
The Gunners will travel to Selhurst Park to take on their London rivals on the Friday evening, before the weekend’s action begins with newly-promoted Fulham at home to Liverpool in the lunchtime kick-off.
Manchester City will begin their title defence at West Ham on Sunday August 7, whilst Nottingham Forest’s first top-flight fixture for more than two decades will see Steve Cooper’s side take on Newcastle at St James’ Park.
Erik ten Hag’s reign at Manchester United will begin at Brighton, whilst Everton manager Frank Lampard faces former side Chelsea on the opening weekend.
