Premier League fixtures announced!
Today is a special day for the football fans. Especially the fans of the Premier League. The FA announced the fixtures for the 2022-2023 Premier League season. All fans will have their main fixtures they will be looking for. Liverpool fans will watch when they play the likes of Manchester United, Everton and Manchester City. Arsenal fans will look for the game against North-London rival Tottenham Hotspur. In this article we discuss some exciting fixtures for round 1.
Crystal Palace versus Arsenal
There is something between Arsenal and the opener of the season. Arsenal played in several seasonal openers in recent years. This time they start the season away against Crystal Palace. The first match of the season always sets the tone. After a rough end of the season, Arsenal dropped out of the top 4, which means they miss out on Champions League qualification. They only got one point out of two games against Crystal Palace last season. Crystal Palace v Arsenal immediately shows how Arsenal looks for this season.
Newcastle United versus Nottingham Forest
Newcastle United versus Nottingham Forest is another very special match. Newcastle United showed great improvement last season when Eddie Howe took over. The spending power with the Saudis behind them will improve the team even further. The first match of this season will give a first glance on the state of Newcastle United. The fans of this team have a tiny hope they can compete for European football this season. The opponents are finally back in the Premier League. After getting relegated in 1999, Nottingham Forest is back in the top tier of English football. Last season newcomer Brentford showed what they were going to do by beating Arsenal on the first matchday. Can Nottingham Forest do something similar against Newcastle United?
