The English Premier League came to a dramatic close in the 2021/22 season, with a number of teams clashing for coveted positions. There were title battles, Champions League qualification battles and relegation battles, all taking place on the very last day of the season.
Manchester City proved themselves to be English champions, finishing the season on 93 points. This put them one single agonizing point ahead of Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool. On the final day, Liverpool needed both to win, and for Man City to lose, in order to clinch the title and despite an early slip-up, they comfortably defeated Wolves 3-1. The real drama unfolded on the other pitch, with Man City going 2-0 down against Steven Gerrard’s Aston Villa. It was Gundogan who  brought ruin to Liverpool’s hopes by scoring two goals to lead Man City to a 3-2 victory, securing the title.
In the relegation zone, Burnley needed to match or better Leeds’ result to secure their own survival. The odds were definitely in their favor as they faced Newcastle at home while Leeds travelled to Brentford. Fate seemed to have other plans as penalties in both games worked to put Burnley into the relegation zone. Leeds rubber-stamped their survival by scoring a 94th minute winner with Burnley unable to find a dramatic finish and failing to equalize.
With such dramatic clashes behind us, what can we expect from this season? What drama will unfold? Which teams will dominate? Let’s take a look at some of the big fixtures scheduled for the 2022/23 Premier League season.
Key 2022/23 Premier League fixtures to look out for
There are a lot of great games coming in the 2022/23 Premier League season, and no doubt a lot of nail-biting fixtures are coming our way
Chelsea vs Tottenham Hotspur
Saturday 13 August 2022
This London derby is always huge, and with it happening so early in the season, there will be a lot of eagerness as both teams seek to prove themselves. Couple this with a long-standing rivalry between the two teams, we’re sure the atmosphere will be electrifying.
Everton v Liverpool
Saturday 3 September 2022
There probably hasn’t been a larger gap between the Merseyside derby teams with the Toffees only barely surviving relegation. However, it’s this gap that makes an upset even more exciting to consider and will likely make Everton play even harder.
Crystal Palace vs Brighton
Saturday 17 September 2022
While not a derby, the rivalry between these two teams stems from as far back as the 70’s and 80’s. Over the last few seasons, clashes between these two teams have had their fair share of drama including penalty saves, great goals and last-minute winners.
Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur
Saturday 1 October 2022
The North London derby is always one fixture to get excited about, but with Conte’s men beating the Gunners to a Champions League spot on the final day of last season, there will be some long-standing resentment to fuel the fire when these two giants clash on the field.

Manchester City v Manchester United
Saturday 1 October 2022
Historically, the Manchester derby has always been a spectacle. With this being Erik Ten-Haag’s first season as manager, and the Red Devils looking to restore some of their pride, this clash against the current champions is sure to be one to watch.
Aston Villa v Wolverhampton
Monday 2 January 2023
Aston Villa have made some big signings with Kamara, Diego Carlos, Coutinho and Olsen added to the squad. This added skill and depth is one of the key reasons we’re so excited to watch the midlands derby versus Wolverhampton which is sure to be an exciting affair.
Liverpool vs Manchester City
Saturday 15 October
With Liverpool and Man City looking leagues ahead of the other teams in the league, this match will likely be a fight for first and second place. Both sides will be desperate to defeat each other as the ramifications of the result could go all the way to the final day of the season and have a huge effect on who wins the 2022/23 trophy.
